at the Joliet plant. With all the news about job cuts at cat all I see is smiling faces on mgnt. and frowns on the people doing the work. Even the workers not being let go are getting downgraded and their pay going from 16$ to 10$. Not all but some.
Well here it is. They went over how much orders have been cut country by country. Then they went over how they will have to cut jobs. They feel so bad that all us team members will have rolling layoffs hours of work reductions and scheduled work hours changed.They are sorry they could not extend the non union perks to leave to their union employe's because the union contract dosen't allow them to do so.
If the company wanted to reward their union team members during the contract negotiations I dont think the union would have objected to a bonus to leave perk.
