The voting process to see if the union is coming in is in full swing right now. It started yesterday; I voted no, just as I said I would.
The voting ends today, in about 1/2 hour.
My boss says the info he's heard makes it sound like it's going to be close. I don't think so. I think that just about all 600 housekeepers are voting yes. All other departments together don't match that number.
I've already heard rumors that if it comes in, people are going to try to elect me as 'shop steward,' the representative who takes the concerns from the department to the union. It's not something I want to do... I mean, can you just imagine me: "We want a five minute break every hour to color in hospital provided coloring books and crayons!" heh!
