I have an idea which is the platform of my campaign for my postal local in Detroit. It is simple. Change from in person meetings to online meetings in the shape of a forum. You conduct 95% of union business online. The meeting would go on 24/7/365. Every member now has a voice. Many members are watching for good ideas, not foolish rants. Discuss ides first. The ideas become motions, just like being at a meeting without the bravado. Critical thinking and knowledge of the collective barg agreement will be crucial to support an argument. For example, once a motion is seconded, give 2 weeks for discussion, one week for final review, then a vote. Many motions can be argued simultaneously. Most importantly, members will quickly become actively engaged and that is what unions are all about. My current union leadership loves things the way they are with only 5% showing up for meetings.
