Who put the U in Union?

Curiosity killed the cat, but it gots me some information I’d like to share. Picking up on last week’s craving for union news, I found the following on our Local 1600 website:

1. Per PhiloDave’s comments, in the category of Endorsements, I was left scratchin’ my head wonderin’ why there wasn’t a mayoral endorsement. Not sure why the “Endorsement Squads” didn’t have a more complete list. We had more than enough time to reach a consensus, right? Oh well, too late now…

2. In the category of Executive Board Meeting news, I continued to scratch my head (right around my ear) wonderin’ how the following news didn’t make it downhill like an out of control snowball in the middle of a February snowstorm:

“…chapter leaders announced that they would be retiring from office at the Feb. 18 meeting: Phil Stucky at Harold Washington Chapter, Maria Estrada to accept the leadership…”

I have nothin’ but love for our current union reps, but can someone ‘xplain to me if the above is proper union protocol?

Remind me again, are we having union elections this semester, or am I still on that LSD blizzard-bound bus to nowhere?
