To our membership,
This morning at 9:00am we initiated an Apprentice Recruitment to gather applications for job openings in our Union. Little did we know that someone, or some entity, would attempt to wreak havoc on our recruitment process. It was clear to us that something had gone awry from the onset.
Within the first 10 seconds of the recruitment process there were over one million hits on the www.46apprentice.org website, coming in from 1,000 of locations all over the world. In short, we have been victimized by an orchestrated attack on our hiring practice.
As things go, I guess all of us should be flattered. In an attempt to embarrass and bring us down, whoever attacked our website and our online application form had no effect at all. Our recruitment process will happen again soon enough. Our new apprentices will be working soon enough. Our recruitment may change, but the people who join us will become proud members of an amazing Union.
As a message to whoever thought their efforts would have a negative impact, you should be aware that the officers and members of Local 46 are more than accustomed to being attacked. We will move on as if today never happened, and place your efforts in the rear view mirror of our lives. We are flattered that you took the time in an effort to diminish our impact on the labor movement here in NYC. You should be aware that we view your efforts as silly and childlike and know that you had no impact on our great Union – no impact at all!
But this we’re sure of: You would never have made it as a Union member of Local 46!
