Looks like Carol's job could be up for grabs.

NAPE Presidential Battle Heating Up
February 22, 2007

The battle for the top job at NAPE will soon be heating up. Carol Furlong currently holds the president's seat at the province's largest union. Furlong is being challenged by Chris Henley, who told VOCM Back Talk with Bill Rowe the nomination process will begin next week. Hhenley says Monday is the call for nominations, mail-in ballots will be delivered March 26th, and returned by April 26th, and the winner will be announced April 30th.



What will it mean to the hundreds if not thousands of Home Support workers in NL who are still not represented by NAPE? I remember getting a call during the last few days of the last great NAPE presidential battle asking me to vote for LEO ! Leo's the guy to vote for. The caller went on telling me if Carol Furlong got in we would never see the Home Support workers unionized. Carol Furlong did not want us unionized. In my case, the caller was right. So far we have not been unionized, nor have we been informed of any progress. Maybe Carol and Chris can comment here on my blog informing home support workers such as myself their intentions. You both are getting emails with my blog link today. Looking forward to hearing from you both.

"he'll get it for sure! looks like she's going to be buried in the bahamas with her son.
this guy is nuts (not for his decision) but for the display in the court room. sometimes he was in tears,looked like he was about to jump up and break out in song a few days back.weird stuff. i bet he'll be signing a tv contract by june to do some sort of show."

Wayne what do you expect from a Liberal Judge, that guy is a Rodeo Clown and one time New York cabby.

anon 1 : maybe she can send me a glamour shot if she decides to respond to my questions.

Anon 2: we signed NAPE union cards years ago and they are supposely trying to unionize the home care sector. outside of a few emails i send a guy called fred oates with the union every 6 months for the pass several years asking if any progress is made. we hear nothing from NAPE!

all i said was to update her photo. that one is an older one and it's a bit blurry. i thought i might of needed new glasses at first but i think you enlarged the photo to much.only takes a few seconds to change it.i doubt if she'll send you any photos of herself after what you said in your blog.

Table Mountains said...

that's the whole point of my blog. i want her to say something on what i asked! NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT THE FRIGGIN PHOTO! the photo is not the issue. if she was running for the title of miss newfoundland/labrador it would be a different matter.

when they run for elections they're no different than politicians who run for public office. they will avoid answering any type of question.if i was a home support worker i wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a reply.

looks like there's no change and probably no hope again for us.
