UPDATE!

This event has been moved to Hanna's in the Old City in lieu of Union Place closing it's doors.

Written on UT Holds Meetings to Address Custodians' Accusations, But They Don't Seem to Calm Nerves:

So, you are assuredly not a custodial worker since you are posting during the middle of second shift on a weekday. The proof is in the pudding, you're a hack, and you are not one of the working people that do the brunt of the work at these institutions. For all your talk of intellectual posturing, it is certainly telling that you have chosen your name to reflect your closest of mental kin, a first grader. It is clear that you are familiar with the mindset.

Either way, custodial work at the university doesn't work like a factory line, and nobody "picks up the slack." They are assigned to clean certain areas, and people assigned to other areas don't come back to sweep up after them. Clearly, it is you who hasn't spent much time with the custodial staff. Or maybe you are! Perhaps you should tell your boss that you are posting on the internet during your shift!

Glad I got you to crack open a dictionary though, there a lot of useful information in there. See you in hell, or socialism.

Written on UT Holds Meetings to Address Custodians' Accusations, But They Don't Seem to Calm Nerves:

"Where is the journalism for the workers that are happy?"

There are no happy workers. The only happy workers on the planet are those that have ownership and control over their workplace.

"Where are the remarks made by some that expressed outrage at the union people being intimidating when asking why aren't they are going to the meetings?"

There are none. Meetings are voluntary in the union and no pressure is placed on worker to sacrifice their time or livelihoods to participate in the organization. The workers join the union and pay dues in good faith that the dedicated staff and volunteers will work to support them. Members who want to attend meetings can and are encouraged to, members who don't want to don't have to, simple as that.

"How about the remarks that expressed outrage at the complaining employees attempting to speak on the happy workers' behalf?"

There are none, except from doughy middle men like yourself who have the luxury of complaining on the internet at noon, instead of doing labor. These workers have not been afforded the luxury of being a whiny child like yourself.

"Where are the answers for workers who are always late, and calling in sick on a regular basis, and we have to cover their work?"

Don't pretend like you are a "we" here. You do not work in the same line of work as these people, lest you wouldn't be complaining on here, and would instead be licking your bosses boots for an extra penny a week.

"These are not my fellow workers, because they don't want to work. They want it like it was, so no one watches over them. There are more happy employees than unhappy ones. Just because you have to work, doesn't mean you're being disrespected."

Indeed, they are not your fellow workers because you are not a member of the working class, considering the luxuries that have been detailed, such as your luxury to complain on the internet during working hours. If you worked in this position, you would probably be asleep at noon since these are second shift workers. Instead, considering that this is your first post on this website, and that you joined today, May 16, in all likelihood you are a paid hack, by UTK, Knox County GOP, or some other anti-worker entity.

Godspeed to the workers, and may they struggle hard and fast to annihilate the power and ideology of persons like yourself.

Written on Swept Under the Carpet?: UT Custodians Allege Harassment, Retaliatory Transfers, and More :

Thanks for the great coverage, power and justice to these workers!
