.......I was long 3000 sh, made a quick 40% and
ran like hell.........the mgt at Oneida are
fogbound........they have no idea what a hopeless position they're
in.........the only prayer they've got is consolidate with LBY
or another major player........I was in the tabletop
industry for almost 30 years and IMHO the OCQ
manufacturing facilities are antiquated and
inefficient.......the BOD of OCQ is flattering themselves to think the
company is worth more than $37.50.......those chumps are
gonna be sellin' pencils on the street corner soon
enough.......God help the diehard OCQ longs;because the OCQ
mgt.sure as hell won't .....
There have been a number of posts that make it
easy to attack and accuse OCQ for alcohol abuse or
employee malfeasance. Nothing could be further from the
truth. Although I have had serious disagreements with
OCQ's management and BOD concerning decisions in the
past, it is absolutely unfair to characterize ANY OCQ
employee in this manner. This company (and the people who
direct its future) defines very high standards of
ethical and professional behavour.
For one thing I don't have to drink to reply to a
fool.I don't have to hide behind a name like penguin to
voice a reply.You might when you make a statment as
stupid as yours.Oneida is a lot more than some one like
you will ever be able to understand. It's not just a
mill but a place where close to 2000 people like me
make the best siverware in the world. NOT to bad for a
bunch of drunks.WE are like any place we have our good
and bad but we not someone like you will clean our
a bunch of drunks they call us.well tell that
fool he can go stright to hell!!!!! we have been here
over 100 years not too bad for a bunch of drunks.do I
agree with every thing that has been going down no!!
but the way to change it is to stay and fight for
change not listening to bull sh-t
I feel bad to think that your opinion of Oneida
is that the hard working people there are a bunch of
drunks. This is not so. They all work hard and you can
not believe everything that you read on these boards.
I don't usually write anything on the boards but I
just had to give you my opinion. The people at Oneida
do not deserve this type of nonsense.
Here we are again. The lawsuit is settled (which
if you remember was "without merit") and OCQ is NOT
disclosing the terms of the settlement to its shareholders.
Libbey is trumpeting its "victory" on its PR line. Is
this yet another example of the the total disregard
the OCQ Board has for the interests of its loyal
shareholders who have held on through all of this difficulty?
Secrecy is not becoming to a company who asks its
shareholders to "trust" its judgment.
Does any one have some info on the confidential
between Oneida and Libby . I am concerned when
settlements are made that can not be discussed with the stock
Perhaps some one may have had a discussion
over a couple of beers that they will share with us .
The use of alcohol during work hours "is" against
policy!!! And it doesn't state one beer or seven. The use
of alcohol period is prohibited! And having a beer
is legal at the age of 21 as long as you don't work
for a company that bans it and even then, you can
legally have as many beers as you want, you just may not
have a job. And I am sorry but I still have to say
that a blind eye has been turned to the use of alcohol
by certain people for years. And I do not have any
relatives or friends who were terminated and do not even
know the person who was recently fired. I don't have a
problem with someone being terminated but I do have a
problem with the fact that it is selective, as is
everything there. And in reply to "Sherrill13461" your guess
is as good as ours as to what is about to happen but
I think we all agree that "something" is. Sorry!
The previous message that I posted should have
said: "having a beer during a NON-PAID lunch does not
break any policies". If you have a paid lunch it is
against company policy to even leave company property.
Sorry about the typo.
