SPSE and Staff relations

Why doesn't SPSE collect information from both members and non-members on LLNS Staff Relations practices to collectively demonstrate SR operational patterns instead of letting individual LLNS employees be "picked off" by the SR system?

SPSE employee concerns are genuine, but they need to include non-member attention before they pop out of existence in the LANSLLNS LLC landscape.

Those of you who were not capable of escaping from the lab have only yourselves to blame for SPSE's inability to protect you.

SPSE is unable to "protect" anyone. Unless you give them lots of your hard-earned money. Which they will use to support political candidates you don't like. Sigh...

This individual is completely ignorant to the laws that govern union dues usage. His statement for the use of dues money would be an illegal use.

I smiled all the way to my ears with twinkles in my eyes. I left the lab in the dust. Bingo. I never can Thank SPSE enough.

OK, you thank SPSE for the fact that you got to "work in hell"??

Just what exactly did SPSE do for your money ($300 per year)?? Since they have never had legal authority to bargain for LLNL employees?

Please read again ..."Thanks to SPSE, who saved my neck."
$300 a year was a lose change compared to the work SPSE put in to fight off the fangs of the lab for me. I am grateful to have SPSE at the lab. I was a member of SPSE. I recommend every employee to join the society.
