Sixth st. Cherry 3744 the following message urging Union members not to be confused by anti Union tactics of the National association of manufacturers was written for members of local 392, United Auto workers by Charles a a Bucko Kuester president there is no use beating around the Bush lets get to the real slant on things As they Are progressing today. The manufacturers along with the manufacturers association and their political cohorts Are sure giving us the works. They spread their evil propaganda mainly aimed at Union organizations to confuse the rank and file of workers. They lie and coerce the poor old worker until he does no to know whether he is coming or going. They Tell you falsely and in the most malicious manner what they Are going to do for the worker and then turn right around and Cut his Throat without a knife. Well that a i pretty Sharp the manufacturers association spreads the propaganda the Legal cohorts or lawmakers put this propaganda into Laws then the employer can wrap you up in one Little package. If he tells you to jump you better or else. I think that the worker is just beginning to realize what the future holds for him under these Man made surf Laws. You Are practically a slave a the Only difference is that you receive just about enough Money to buy your groceries pay your j rent go to the show now and then and Hope you have enough left to pay your insurance. A slave before the civil War received his groceries a Cabin for his wife and his children and All their clothes and when he died his master had to even Bury him. Yes he got a Good flogging once in a while according to what kind of a master he had but these Money mad employers of this Day and age done to know when to Stop. They want cooperation but they will not try honestly to cooperate with the employees. Instead of asking John Doe to try to do a Good honest Job for them they use every scheme in the books to get every last ounce of Energy John Doe has left in him. If poor old John complains too hard they got another name for him he is a communist. But the real fascist is the Guy who makes these kinds of Laws and the employer who will not bargain honestly with his employees. Remember always a Promise is like pie crust it is easily broken. This Day and age you better write it Down Plain and simple with no strings attached. That a the Only honesty that you can depend upon today. Remember this no matter what your employers say to you or what you read in the papers done to Lett hem get you a mixed up. Your Union is you and your Brothers stick together and you cannot help but win out. The truth is a United we stand divided we will so lets stand together and fight our Battles together.
