Nomorefiat You said(Tom, I think you have been terribly misinformed about what this proposed agreement contains. You should wait and find out what it is before you go shooting your mouth off in a public forum when you don't no jack about it.) Looks like I knew a bit more than "jack about it" loser. Very few items were better than cat's but I was off on a few. Very few. You guys are the ones here that don't know Jack, talking like you actually have a stake in this. I was passing on info from the front lines, not from behind my desk (like most here are) Now I remember why I don't waste my life on boards that are full of unemployed losers. Its almost 6pm dont most of you have to go to Walmart before they close? To any here that was supportive of the locals position, I thank you. The rest of you losers dont deserve a comment. See ya all in 6 years, I am sure you will still be here solving the words problems from behind a keyboard and complaining that your min. wage should be raised.
The contract was approved overwhelmingly throughout the locals. Our leadership did an excellent job in bargaining and explaining the proposal. A Big Kudos goes out to all of them. There was positive movement on several key issues that came down to the wire. We lost in some and gained in others. I guess that's why they call it bargaining. My advice to you Mr. toolman_in_milw aka stlukawski, if you're unhappy move on. It's that easy. And in your mind, as quoted: "What they are offering us I can get at just about any 10 man job shop for benefits and wage" Go For It.....It's called the Exit Door.
I stand by my previous message. You did not know anything before the contract was ratified and you apparently didn't listen when it was explained at the ratification meeting. When will you be relocating? I hope soon.
