You have to remeber Mittal has the blessing of the American Government from ole lian George to Obama Rama Ding dong; As well as congress, Durban of IL, Viskloyski of IN and all the others. Why would USWA care they are getting their fair share. Maybe we as the people should wake up, take out the trash and put real working people back in these offices!! But that will never happen, because we will still be asleep at the wheel during election time. Remember "VOTE FOR ME AND I WILL SET YOU FREE" rap on Brothers and Sisters.

These are bad people, ArcelorMittal. The workers and management inside the plant mostly have lived in this area all their lives.They were brought back for 3 to 4 months of asset protection. A Big Lie. After a few months of indoctrination they have been assimilated into Rupplicks and have been destroying the plant under the a watchful eye of Mark Waylen, Mike Rippey and Lou Schorsch. Mark, Mike and Lou believe they are great Americans because they have lived in the Chicago area all their lives. Take a good look at yoursef in the mirrer boys. What you really are is UNAMERICAN!

ArcelorMittal's Hennepin finishing plant in Hennepin,Illinois is being gutted by a group of 30 USW volunteers. Many had worked at the plant for 40 years until this foreign corporation decided that this high tech, profitable and the newest wholly owned by ArcelorMittal in the United States needed to be closed. The reasons given were lies after lies repeated so often that people you would think had common sense believed them. Costs and transportation were to high. We have to much capacity they said. These were just lies and those keeping them going were the ones who felt they had much to loose. Like ArcelorMittal's Indiana East and Indiana West plants who scored miserable when compared to Hennepin. This was no Lie. It was a very expensive study paid for by Lakshmi Mittal that said in a nut shell Hennepin is better, more profitable and has a self directed work force that you might want to model your other plants
to. What an embarrassment. Hennepin had to GO

Our manaagers always said Hennepin was a dump and it should be shut down. Your right steelworker. ArcelorMittal doesn't have to tell the truth on anything. Who is going to stop them.. I was at Hennepin few years ago. Looked like a good plant to me.
