Sale of KPU Telecom
By James Schenk
May 04, 2008
In my professional opinion the administrators of the public trust
company should be ashamed of themselves for this despicable action
of even considering the elimination, or sale of many good paying
public union jobs for their own gain. This is a disturbing trend
in Ketchikan and the public needs to rise up and voice their
displeasure with any decision like this that would adversely
affect the stability of our great city.These carpetbaggers have
been a part of Ketchikan since its inception, but there is absolutely
no reason to stand on the sidelines and watch these people sell
our children's future. The industry as a whole in the electrical
field grows by leaps and bounds with the telecommunications field
leading the way.
ANY JOB in Ketchikan should
be a good paying Union Job, if we as a generation are going to
change America, let's start with our Town, let's have the highest
standard of living in Alaska, not sub par employment, and low
paying non-union jobs. Let us as a community of people begin
to dedicate our energy collectively, to Organize and retain all
good paying Union Jobs,and send a message to those who oppose
that end that they need to look at the whole picture not their
own financial interests.
Thank You. Fraternally I.B.E.W.
