An anti-union, handwritten note outlining the
reasons employees should not vote for unionization.
Handwritten Anti-Union Note
April 11, 1988
You Have a Right to Know - 1. With a union you
cannot leave your job for a break until someone comes and runs your
job while you are on a break. 2. You could have to pay for insurance
under a union. 3. A union will promise you anything to get you to
vote for them. 4. Once you get a union and you don't like what it is
doing, it would take 2/3 of the people working to vote it out which
would be 282 employees out of a possible 424 employees. 5. Some of
the doffers are making $8.00 to $14.00 an hour. Where else in the
area can you make that kind of money. You had better think before
you jump. Ask some of the ply and cable doffers what they make.
Where else can you make that kind of money? 6. This company can buy
fabric cheaper than we can make it. 7. Look around and see who are
the leaders in the union, are these the people you want to speak for
you? 8. The Bowling Green Plant had a union and it went out on
strike and was shut down and that could very well happen here at our
plant. Some of you are running twisters that came from the Bowling
Green Plant- you had better think before you vote yourself out of a
job. VOTE NO!
