From the USW website on ASARCO negotiations (10-8-2013)
The third quarter bonus for most ASARCO employees was $1890. Since GRUPO last took over, ASARCO had a $1.8 billion operating profit (per the website).
Negotiations are ongoing with many issues to resolve.
USW advises that ASARCO'S union members SAVE THEIR BONUS in event of a future strike or lockout!
Hmmm ..... don't spend your bonus brother, you may need it in the future ..... ominous.
USW is also pushing ....... stand behind us brother, we need to be united (maybe some of their members are a little squishy on the USW stance).. Another thing that stands out is the USW is working "cheek and jowl" with other unions under the GRUPO/AMC/SCCO umbrella. which, I'm sure, sets GRUPO, AMC and SCCO's teeth on edge.
What I don't understand is how you could possibly know that my doctor recently prescribed Fenofibrate to lower my triglycerides and Levothyroxine to stimulate a slightly under active thyroid (the only prescriptions I take on a daily basis).
Be VERY CAREFUL how you treat me on this site or I'll be tempted to bring-up how you used a pencil and string to determine a very critical and personal measurement.
Which site are you talking about? USW or SCCO? And ..... shouldn't I be grounded IN reality and not grounded TO reality. I expect precision from you as I have a tendency to be "anal" which I'm sure you can understand.
