I work the night shift in KC and they made there final offer of 35/30/30/40 for a 4 year contract. We vote on it tonight at 6 pm. They also raised our ganyon from 90 percent every three weeks to 95 weekly. They said this is there final offer if it is, expect a strike next week because I am sure we will vote the offer down tomorrow! 35 cents is a joke. I will keep you posted.
We voted contract down 135-2. Voted to strike again as well. Company changed offer to 35-40-45 pay raise. Everything else is still same. 95% per week, which really bites for the new guys. Wednesday, the stewards drew up our counter proposal and gave it to Sysco of KC. They have 48 hours to respond(Friday). If they dont fess up some more, we'll be walking shortly after. They gave office personnel a memo about how to handle a strike situation. Some customers have asked if we are going to strike as well. Drivers have been instructed to say, "Company is still in negotiations, nothing to worry about. Deliveries will continue." Im kinda lookin forward to a little time off actually. Little Cliff (Hitler) Hooper needs to get a reality check. Jim Hope(less), He's new Prez, Still isnt in touch with the working guy. Never has been. Both have there heads in the clouds. Maybe even in a dark anatomical hole. :)
I would like to quote the inept "Hitler" (VP of Operations) as saying, "They are grossly overpaid to do a mediocre job. I can bring apes in to do their work." Let's strike 'em and hold him to that!!! He'll find out the hard way that we are every bit as much a part of there record $8 million sales weeks as the snooty pencil-strokers upstairs!
on 9/22/00 at $45.44 or 22,339 shares. According to Dow Jones News Wire this morning. If he is selling this large of a piece of his stock about 30 days before they report their quarterly numbers, what do you think is in the numbers? I wonder if the Strike and FUEL COSTS are affecting their ability to make the earnings number.
