Virginia is a "Right To Work" State .. taking away this "right" is much like telling "one" what Religion they must be in order to seek employment, or remain employed in Virginia !!
BIG Unions have been pricing themselves out of the Market for years now.
I had mentioned previously to my fellow (IBEW) co-workers, that we must be very aware of this @ contract time.
Union Contracts can be good, but can be over-used in some Businesses. They certainly can be a headache for every company that needs to re-organize to stay in business !!
While Dominion (field craft) employees certainly earned their wages, and many were completely "worn out" at age 50 (working the elements, dangers, overtime etc) - this was comming less & less affordable, or conducive for a company to run itself effeciently as a (Stock-Holder) Public Utility .
So now I pity the ones that DIDN'T "buy back" every company & union benefit allowed (over the years).
I see Dominion has an entirely different set of "benefits" today, and more contractors - (since I retired in 2004)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Another I/S purchase - Dr. Peter Brown (Director) ...Nov.20 .. 149 shrs @ $67.16 per shr. = $10,006
No thank you Bernie (Madoff) .. are you posting from your jail cell ?
D has gained about 17.5% in less than 1 Q = or about $10.00 per share (no divy included)
.... geeez, crazy spammers don't know what good stocks are ......
Recent I/S purchase 11-7-13 - D's Director W.P. Barr just made another purchase of 3100 shrs @ $65.54 per shr ... his 3rd (true) purchase for 2013. This is always a good sign ....
I'll be watching to see if anymore follow suit ??
... Oh - I knew it !!
It's that little fat rolly-polly 'laserFRIEDlogic" and "Echo" - and his yapping little NASTY-mouthed little "cloudedview".
All of you are nothing but "one" (little) jealous 'HAVE NOT', speaking with 3 voices (from ONE MOUTH)
And is sooo ignorant, ya don't know that the TAKERS, with the tax write-offs - are the established' BI-Partisan Congress
You do realize (??) YOUR democrats have put 'you' on the streets to "pan-handling" for a living -- don't you ??
Don't blame me that YOU are their 'little GO-Boys" .. and I am not able to promote you either .. ya gots to see yo daddies about that .. (if you can find them) !!
Don't cry to me about someone's 100K 'classic car' ?? They made the TAX laws, fuss at your Liberal Dems. about that ??
And btw, my puppy has a toy water-gun, it's RED and he'll let you to put it in your mouth and squirt water out of it - and he might even let you pull his trigger a couple of times -- he'd enjoy that !!
Sooo .. go pay for your own damn STUFF ya goofy little repetative crybaby 'have-nots".!!
GO get your binkey's, change your depends, and have mommy put your '3 heads' down for a nappy-poo !!
I've always used DUK as a comparison to D .. so here are the current yearly high's for both (for today) ...
Dominion's yearly high = $64.04 .. now trading about mid $61.00's = - $3.00
Duke's yearly high = $75.46 ... now trading about $67.00 = - $7.50
Don't get "skeered" over this goverment thing .. the market ALWAYS comes back, and in D's case it will be quicker than most utilities :-)
SO ?? .. you couldn't bother to 'copy/cut/paste' the PR News Wire article (Tues. Sept.24)
"EPA Selects Dominion Virginia Power As A GREEN POWER SUPPLIER Of The YEAR"
... we see your agenda ...
Yep .. saw an article by an AP blogger (Sept. 21) - reporting small fire 'contained and allowed to burn out'.
They did evacuate about 11 homes as a precaution. Dom. is evaluating damage & cause.
