REJECTING CERVANTES CORRUPTION, INCOMPETENCE AND UNPROFESSIONALISM, IAM LEADERS AROUND THE COUNTRY OPEN TO CHANGE
Over the past several weeks, I have virtually met with many IAM leaders and their staffs, to explain in detail why I am running for the position of IAM General Secretary Treasurer (GST) and discuss their concerns. I could not be more encouraged by their reaction to my candidacy. Many did not know about current GST Cervantes’ corrupt inaction regarding the theft of IAM members’ dues by her sister and others in Dora’s home local, LL2198. The Cervantes campaign and their entrenched establishment supporters seem to not care that the top financial officer in the IAM refused to act when she, and others on the current Executive Council, knew that her sister and others were stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from IAM members in her own local lodge. And, like me, many are concerned about our great union’s future if GST Cervantes remains in her position.
Dora continues to pat herself on the back even though during her time in office the IAM has run a budget deficit EVERY YEAR, except one. She touts her management skills in spite of the fact she has mismanaged the IAM Grand Lodge Pension Plan to the extent that EVERY district and some local lodges are paying 15 TIMES more into the pension for the exact same benefit. She shirks responsibility regarding her unprofessional behavior while acting in her official capacity as IAM GST, notwithstanding the countless narratives, some even occurring in her headquarters office.
Sisters and brothers, change is needed and it is needed now! The IAM rolled the dice by appointing Dora Cervantes to the vital position of IAM GST. The experiment has not worked. I will, on Day One, bring the much needed experience, integrity and energy that IAM members deserve to have in the GST’s office.
Please request your absentee ballot today and VOTE for CHANGE. VOTE FOR CHALLENGER IAN!
I promise that I will never defraud this Union out of anything whatsoever, or allow it to be defrauded, if within my power to prevent it. To all of this, I most solemnly pledge my sacred word of honor—Challenger and Candidate for IAM GST Ian Scott-Anderman
