Nothing is signed until its presented and passed by the membership. If it is what they're presenting it better be for our past concessions and not part of any more concessions they may want. Any more concessions will be a no vote from me and should be from everyone else...

You can't vote no or yes still don't mean a thing . You can't strike either until 2015

I can honestly see this one going to arbitration. I think they are counting on us all being strapped for cash and worried about the consequences of too many no votes, as far as threats from the International. Honestly that card has already been played. I would like to think that my fellow workers are smarter than that this time around.
Yes there will always be those of us that can't manage our money, and will jump at any opportunity for a quick short term gain, but lets be real. I believe most of us are in better shape than they would like for us to be, that's why they are upping the ante this time. You can be sure that what we would lose as a result of such a payout wouldn't be worth the price either. The stick and carrot routine rarely covers the losses we experience within the first six months of ratifying a contract. Of coarse the newbies will ratify anything if their representation tells them it's a good deal.

I think international knows that the "$9,000" signing bonus is about what we (top tier) gave up each and every single year, 3% Bonus, COLA, over time after 8 hours, Jobsetter Pay, Chrismas Bonus, Day after Easter Holiday, Jobs Bank, Attendance Program that even The Tea Party would hate, VEBA, Vision and Dental gone for Retirees which god willing will include al of us, Job Classifications, a few minutes for our break time, and least but not last, Corporate Seniority issues and i'm sure i forgot a few things more, so for all and a few more, they can go to hell with any offer if it don't include Full Seniority Rights for displaced workers and huge pay increases for 2nd tier, nobody is saying $15/hour raises, but damn, give them a $4 or 5 dollars and some healthcare they can actually use for themselves and their families

What International has done to it's senior workforce at Chrysler about Seniority Rights and what we all know about pay inequality for the "2nd tier" workers, they better hope this shit passes cause it's a big P.R. nightmare for them and their attempted unionization of transplant workers in the south, i was even told today that UAW members will picket Auburn Hills Monday about senior workers lossing their seniority if they are put at other chrysler plants against their will (not sure if this is true)

Vote No, Vote No, Vote No! Signing bonuses do nothing for the long term. We need to get our concessions back, tier 2 needs a pay increase, and we need to take care of our retirees. Reinstatement of our cola also. Senior management is getting theirs, we need to get ours too!! Hey International.....remember...s olidarity forever!!!

I would like a pay raise. Hard to make ends meet. Also a raise would get some of us to buy a new Chrysler product. I been driving Chrysler products before i worked for them. I am due for a new one. I have A new Charger would look nice in my garage.

THere is no way we are getting a 9000 dollar signing bonus, no way. It would be nice, but look at the profit sharing check that was given 750 dollars. 3 to 4 grand if where lucky.

It is odd how insensitive every one is when their is race issues involved.
But the adults on this forum are also being insensitive and cruel when they say their curt remarks about the Tier 2 employees.

Yeah, I hate those lazy black people milking the clock all day texting on their phones and taking 4 bathroom breaks an hour. I also hate the lazy white people who do the same shit.

1. That wasn't a profit sharing check. It was a performance bonus which they didn't have to give us.
2. No comment on the ignorant racism. Keep talking that crap all you want, you only make yourself look stupid. It's obvious you have no life, posting under several usernames like someone actually agrees with you. Might want to seek some psychiatric evaluations, you're having conversations with yourself.
3.$10,000 does sound high. Not expecting it. Not even expecting $8,000. But if it does happen... then hey.... I will not argue.:)
it really aint alot

Look at the big picture,$8000 or so now, and that means NO RAISES (which we have not gotten a raise since 2003) Even Minimum wage workers keep getting raises but we have not. That 8000$ also means no cost of living allowance either for the next 4 years. For them to pay out 8000 now opposed to raises and Cost of living, the company benefits BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!
