why rick, rumors of your demise have been exaggerated. i'm glad of that. I don't know what u r talkin about . I am pretty sure u don't know either. again.
I am "sure" the stadium was glad to get the sponsorship gig with LP. they lost "Adelphia" I think in the Bush meltdown. and LP bought their way into the NFL sponsorship so I reckon it's a win/win.
good luck to you. ya'll were left with as big a mess as the Tennessee titans football team. maybe things will get better. they can definitely get worse. I have seen them worse..ya'll had the cancer surgery . maybe a recovery is in store with a sensible driver.
oh, this is a "projection" as opposed to a "fact". cart in front of the horse again I see. all I see is red ink. THATS A FACT. it's important to know one from the other.
U.A.W. negotiations with V.W. to begin within the year per the 2 professional bodies. peterbilt hasn't had a professional agreement with anyone in 6 and 1/2 years. stock prices, marketshare, and down profits reflect the truth. "the truth cuts like a knife". pull it out of your back and proceed. hahahahaha
with all respect, if this were a poker hand, one of us would be a winner and the other a loser. #1, u have no idea what the u.a.w. is doing. or where. period. 2 anyone who says they didn't pay between 4-5 a gallon under bush is a liar. I am assuming the keystone pipeline is what you speak of. the states have it shut down. they do not want their drinking water to be like Kentucky or west Virginia's so they say. I don't blame them. also funding for the pipeline is paid by who?????????? the oil companies aren't bidding in the lower 48. that means taxpayers. the folks living there will work that out at the ballot box. negotiations are not yet scheduled for merc/vw. they will be. stay tuned and have a terrific week.
as best as I can understand, you seem to think things are done ata a certain pace and I reckon they are. BUT, at this point "you" have the cart in front of the horse. results from negotiations can't happen "before" negotiations. I can see u have never been involved in a negotiation environment. sit back, take a deep breath, and WAIT. the process isn't over. it is just starting..the international union will be dispensing "facts" as they deem necessary. more than likely these negotiations will be low key. everybody doesn't operate like pcar. matter of fact, NOBODY does. that is why pcar's stock is wallowing and their marketshare has been jerked out bfrom under them. "you simply do not close the most profitable location because "my daddy made me c.e.o. and I can" unless you are a card carrying certified idiot. if you do that you will suffer. as is the case now. i'm glad to be on the sidelines. we shall see the results when the negotiations are over. they aren't even scheduled to begin yet! watch and learn something. have a good week.
slave, I wonder about your background. you see, yes, the charter's are in and they are in fact u.a.w. represented plants. the "election" part is over. as u say, you see nothing. that is because the negotiations at either facility have yet to begin at either facility. I honestly don't know the agenda for the negotiations. at this point they are obviously getting used to living in the same house. they "will" get down to brass tacks. the locals will have to elect their officers and negotiating teams. there is no rush that I am aware of. and, "yes" I am and have been a democrat all my life and will die a democrat. i'm not a thief. I don't believe in stealing a workers pension and giving it to the c.e..o......and I really don't care about the height of trees in Michigan. politically speaking, if you guys don't come up with a candidate by next year, a prarie dog can beat you. "again". i.m.h.o. Obama didn't beat the republicans. the people were/are still #$%$ at bush and the 4.50-5.00 a gallon gas with no jobs. folks realize they CAN have that again. they don't want it. $2 a gallon LESS is a windfall to the voting class americans who do not drive Rolls-Royce. facetiously, I CAN BEAT ANY OF THE 4 listed. but i'm retired. if Hillary runs, she wins. if not, I have no idea about the candidate for the party. I am lovin the fuel drop. YOU PUT AN OIL MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE YOU MAY AS WELL PUT JESSE JAMES TO GUARDING THE BANKS. that's what happened. neither term from 2000-2008 was "won". America tried the "appointee" as opposed to elected. it nearly killed all of us. I doubt it happening in my lifetime again. folks like jobs and affordable cost of living. have a great day. ima watch the titans get hammered and watch the race at Talladega which is about 1-2 hrs from the merc plant. adios.
slave, it ain't "they r coming". it is "THey r there". if acknowkedging the u.a.w. is in Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa al. is cheerleading, ima turning flips and shakin my pom=poms. "rumor" is they are looking east into Georgia and Columbus ms. i'm glad u guys finally got some green ink on your graph. ya needed it!!!!!!! have a great weekend.
slave, based on your remarks i think i can take u 2 niagra falls and u can/won't see water.
Say hello to u.a.w. Local 42 at volkswagon motors co. In chattanooga. The growing list of winners continues. I wonder if "columbus day" has a private meaning:)
U.a.w. Local 112. Mercedes motors co. Tuscaloosa al. no matter how many lies is told.........local 112 resides in tuscaloosa. Because the people are smart. Columbus ms. Has a bullseye on it. Bank that.
it is already in dinette.................................unless the news coming out of Mercedes is false. Mercedes announced it last weekend. you live in fairyland. reality says otherwise. I am plagiarizing the news. the vendors are signing up or already have, 1 of the 2. now Mercedes can advertise ALL their equipment is built by craftsmen who work with a common goal and interest. you never have worn reality very well. u r a liar just like the rest of your constituents.
your stock is in decline. approximately 5-6k new members from vw and Mercedes in the last 2 weeks. not counting the feeder /vendors. u fit rite in with the rest of the pigcar folks. u have zero accuracy
THEY'RE COMING. BOOK IT.
Argo, "everything" I see that u have written is true from current to raygun. I thank you for your kind and truthful remarks from today to 9/1/1 to the 80's. you are correct. I wish u the best. u "do" have a better chance (imho) with a new guy in the chair than mark pigott. I have a great many friends from those 38 yrs. some non union salaried folks, others co-workers. they are all good folks. regardless of the past my aim is forward. my pcar days r behind. they were so bad, if I had to re do them in order to be young again i'd just as soon stay status quo. try to maintain your health as best you can. good luck to you. my time is now spent on stage in Nashville on weekends. it's where I should have been all along but there is no "rewind" on time. choose as wisely as u can Argo with your time. it's a level playing field. I tip my hat 2 u . be safe.
argo, I am angry because they are a rat shop . as for my motivation, "son i'm retired." I have reached my goal. I was lucky enuff to live thru the 38 yr war. I am certifiably ecstatic that pigott got his head cut off. your grand daddy made a ton of money if he was buying since the 60's. i'm happy for him and all who did. I will never forget pigott stealing Christmas from children 3 times and locking out the employees in Nashville 3 times in 10 yrs. I hate him and don't care if he walks in front of a train today. I wish you and your folks the very best. I have no respect whatsoever for these lying corksuckers who wish to promote pcar as a white dove. they are buzzards as opposed to doves. just food for thought for u: 1 ask your grand daddy about the 112 a share stock. if he was buying like u say he knows what it was. 2 what is so great about $59 a share when it WAS 112 and marketshare was 27-29%? I still have no answer how they made "record profits" and lost marketshare at the same time. there is only 1 solution. they were liars and they still are. oxymorons are commonplace at pcar.
