In your buyout paperwork... I believe it states that you cannot work for chrysler ever again. Who knows since it is a new company now. I've known supervisors who were let go who were then contracted to come back and work for ALOT more money. It would benefit the new company to rehire old workers as they are already trained. It would probably create quite a stir if people who took buy outs were allowed to return. Then you would have current workers saying they would have took a buyout if they could have went to tier 2. It is highly unlikely that it will be allowed for anyone to rehire.

kokomo trans. had at least two people who took the buyout, working as temps and were told they could be hired full time as second tier if they did any hiring

Why would it create a stir, Everyone had the opportunity to take a buy out. They would be making less money and have next to no benefits and no seniority so what would be the big deal?

I know people in Brampton who took buyouts on the first loss of the 3rd shift, and were later rehired when the 3rd shift was reinstated. Usually when they offer buyouts, they don't anticipate having to replace those workers, but it does happen. We don't have 2 tier wages in Canada yet, so the buyouts are usually for different reasons. The company loses money on the buyout but they save money when they rehire an ex-employee, with a good work record who is already trained and ready to start.

Because TONS of people did NOT take the buyout because of the unemployment rate. Trust me, TONS more would have taken the buyout or buy down in this case. It WOULD create a stir.

Why would you want to work there again? I guess you should have not taken the buyout then. Are you going to school? I took the buyout to better myself. I'm going into the medical field and should not have to worry about unemployment again.

You raise a valid question.
The Old Chrysler let us go.
I'm sure if you were willing to hire a lawyer, you could find a loophole that would make the New Chrysler at least look at your resume.

As they say, who needs training to work in a automobile factory a monkey can do that kind of work. A monkey would quit after 10 minutes

What do you mean they let you go? You sold your job. I dont know about hiring you back but they didnt let you go.

You're taking "let you go" to mean being fired. And while, yes, that is the typical meaning of that phrase, I used it to mean "releasing us".
Sorry I wasn't literal enough.

Do you think they will ever go to two tier in Brampton? And do you think they will ever offer a volunteer buy out?

Yes you can, regardless of what other peoples opinions are. Someone already tried that for fun and they said yes, you're applying for Fiat.

I think eventually everyone will be making $14 per hour, but they will get $100k buy down and keep their seniority and benefits.

The $14.00 is a starting wage for 2nd tier. What is the wage progression for a 2nd tier worker? Anyone know? For most of us it was starting at 70% getting 5% more every 6 months for 3 years. But if they do go for a buydown I dought they get $14.00 Just my opinion.
