I am a PSA employee of 8 1/2 years in the reservations group who would like to respond to your Jan. 26 article headlined, "PSA/USAir Merger Pivots on Teamsters."
Your wording needs a correction. We employees who are Teamsters are not in a powerful position of being able to stall or block the proposed acquisition.
The leaders of the union themselves may be in a powerful position, but we, the dues-paying members who they are supposed to be representing, feel that we are in a powerless position.
We are frustrated that our so-called representatives may ignore our wishes and prevent the acquisition. You wrote that Marvin Griswold, secretary-treasurer of Teamsters Local 2707, says PSA's 3,200 Teamsters are opposed to anything that takes away the protection they have negotiated on our behalf.
