By Aaron Humes: President of the Christian Workers’ Union (CWU) Evan “Mose” Hyde was reassured by his board of directors after the filing of the suit filed on PBL’s behalf in which the company is claiming special damages of 1.034 million dollars, along with costs and other relief that they continue to support his presidency.
It is something Hyde told Channel 7 News’ Jules Vasquez on talk show Uncut last week and reporters again at a press conference this week that he sought: “Ultimately, you know, I can’t assume that the members of the Board are comfortable with the fact that the battles that we have fought, and the way that we have fought them, has brought us to this moment, which, you know, it is our opponent’s superpower: litigation. Many people get in the ring with that superpower and are not successful. And so it is not this is not something this is not some small thing right now for a union that has limited resources, members that have limited resources are needed to see despite a big name and a big mouth, I don’t have a lot of resources. So, $1,000,000 is a huge deal for us.”
Hyde was first elected to a three-year term in 2018. He says he is grateful that he has been reassured of the support of the Board and his members: “thankfully for me said, well, they are behind us, they are with me and give me a vote of confidence, which means a lot because I can’t assume that that is their position. And I feel that with that commitment, no, we can try to figure a way forward with this matter.”
At this week’s press briefing, Hyde also noted that the litigation may prove to be a distraction from other pressing issues the Union is working on.
