So depending upon how upset I cont to get over the @WorkingFamilies endorsement & folks like @MauriceWFP lying through their teeth, I'm going to disclose things from the time that I work there that are embarrassing for them. Please RT!

WFP UNION BUSTED canvass staff in 2011/12
We even hosted one of the meetings at the apartment that I lived at at the time where all five of us were staff...

When mgmt got wind, one of us was there. Reportedly they laughed, said "that's not gonna be a problem soon" next month they dispersed us across the country.
@SEIU was running a campaign called fight for a fair economy in the wake of Occupy Wall Street. They provided money to @WorkingFamilies who then supplied organizers.

So let's review: WFP use Union money to Union bust, by killing the organizing effort and spreading out staff.
There's even more skeletons in the closet folks... not sure how far I want to take this because I do know that they are very vengeful... I'll probably keep the worst stuff in my back pocket, just for protection.
2. I always thought it was weird @NYPANetwork was so eager to affiliate with wfp?

I don't know why you would be when it was revealed to me by the Bernie organizer at WFP, @WorkingFamilies tried to stop NYPAN's formation, internally they said it was a "threat to OUR organizing"
They were literally given direction to try to take all of the energy out of organizing of NYPAN, and push WFP local chapters instead.

This organizer was also encouraged to steal information from other groups and turn it over to the party. @BushwickBerners email list, for exp.
3. WAGE THEFT: while pushing a $15 minimum wage, #wfp was paying workers as little as $9/hour, and often asking us to work overtime, especially during elections.

Remember me mentioning @SEIU's FFE? They put us all on salary, before making us work 60 hr weeks, to avoid paying OT!
We thought management was finally doing something nice for us, when in fact all they were doing was setting themselves up to save a TON on payroll, as we helped build out the organization and new offices across the country.

They're starting to sound like @Walmart amirite?
I'll keep updating this thread as I remember more, or as I choose to disclose more...

again, as far as reprisals, I would encourage them to just take the licking. There's one skeleton that would outrage both liberals and conservatives alike so, if they want to keep it secret...
A few more things:

1. The only reason I'm doing this is because the clear misrepresentation of policy, & claiming transparency after concealing the vote tally. These 2 points of dishonesty are incontrovertible.

2. It was my old firm which raised canvasser wages to 15/hr in NYC
We literally had to create a private company to take care of people like ourselves. This was in 14, & we were able to raise the wage for canvassers by setting the bar.

WFP couldve done that from the start, &if so I may still be working there. Theyre not about it. Or most things.
This is the first of the WFP crowd to come take a swipe.

Notice the attack on me personally, not anything I've said.

"I don't like what you're saying so I'm going to threaten you"

Again, don't start the war dude, just let wfp take its licking.

Also let's not pretend like this individual didnt hear about this from people obviously talking about it elsewhere.

Somewhere, a group chat is cataloging all of this.
Here the tweet, I can't see it anymore but that may be because I reported it.

No one's re-litigating behavior. I'm relitigating employer practices. We've all done things we're not proud of. I called these things out knowing I'd be threatened, blackmailed, & possibly blackballed.
