VOTE "YES"for OCC November 13-17

Many clericals have had or heard about bad experiences
with unions. The picture is usually the same: a small
group of high-paid union officials, isolated from member-
ship, run the union in their own interests. Even so, almost
without exception, unionized workers have better wages,
benefits, and working conditions than non-unionized
workers in comparable jobs.
"Better than nothing".is not good enough, however. How
can our new union represent our interests better than the
average, bureaucratized union? Under the OCC's pro-
posed bylaws, union democracy is the difference. Accord-
ing to the proposed bylaws:
* the membership is the highest authority of the union
* the membership decides the key issues at regular
monthly meetings and special board meetings as needed
+ all union representatives are elected annually and
subject to recall at any time.

* the four paid officers earn no more than clerical
wages an dwork as clericals half-time.
" the membership elects the bargaining cpmmittee,,
determines contract demands and priorities, and
directs the course of negotiations with management;
* only the membership can decide to strike, if neces-
sary, to win a decent contract.
" dues are set by the membership; the OCC will run on
voluntary contributions after we've run our first
We CAN control our union and wield it, like a powerful
sword, in our own best interests. We CAN begin to win
better wages, benefits, and working conditions-through
our democratic union.

by the label'outside and perpetuates due to the cold, naturally refreshing taste inside. (cf. lessons 1, 2 and 3.)
