OK The fundamentals of a market economy withstanding, why would you strike for any reason in a recession and current federal stance with Unions like what is going on now in the US? It all seems kind of stupid and ill thought out to me. I am not what you would call a “Union Person” at all,, in fact I would say that I am a “Anti Union” person if I was going to categorize myself in such a manner, but all that aside why would you pull a Bonner like this? This is the mother of all bad ideas and it benefits only the Union Elite,,, It’s the rank and file that will suffer for it if it happens,,, Just my 2 cents

For all of you bashing the union if you worked for the company you'd see just how bad they treat their employees and dislike anything that's not a machine. for you in England and other countries if they could pay you less and less, They would. Those jobs over there were ours, but the fat cats trying to get fatter for what reason. Those assholes ruined our economy and they'll ruin yours just give them time. That company is a union itself and trying to get more from us but I don't expect you to understand cause you don't sound very educated.They'll phuck you every chance they get you'll see!!!!

Where’s Obama? He’s suppose to help create jobs, well he needs to step in here and help keep this company from moving over seas. Someone needs to write, or call the white house and let them know this is happening, they might help. They may not know this is going down, so let them know.

Why are you expressing yourself like that,which illinois plants are you talking about, Cat hasn't even been in LaGrange that long, and that place is mainly all new hires from the Greenbriar sale,those people were hired in at !4.30 a hour. There not making no $18.00 a hour except maybe fore skilled trades (22.00},with benefit's.The UAW in Illinois has no power here anymore at all

You do know cat was hiring a month ago. Where were you then? Sitting online typing here is shows. Also I can go any where right now and get a job. So what's your excuse
LaGrange was hiring back in April 2011, skilled Trades position's to my knowledge, but the reason why was because new contact coming-up all the older guy's from the GM Legacy are retiring and getting out, no UAW anymore!To be honest the UAW is gone just like Detroit!

If you are anti union and say a job is better than no job, give your head a shake. It is a race to the bottom to see who gets the drivel that corporations are "paying". one third of the USA lives in poverty..Because corps. are driving wages lower and lower. Unions help bring wages up even in the unorganized labor force. Without a union, you have no rights as an employee. They treat you like a piece of crap as they do in countries like China, Mexico, etc.

@@@@@@@@@@

"Compromise" has destroied America.

@@@@@@@@@@

"We" (those who agreeded) have been bound to a written agreement. "We" (agreeded), dividing "Citizen" from "Elected".

Those who have been "TRUSTED" by "Election" have "BREACHED" our agreement.

As I assemble this communication, preperations are being made at the United Nations for a "TREATY" to be ageeded on (signed). Clinton is and will sign away the "SOVERNITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA".

That motion will root it self in the Justice System Of American Courts and the Caterpiller Strike will be the end of your Union.

When Paul Revier yelled out "THE BRITISH ARE COMMING", People listened.

When several people called out "AMERICA IS BEING INVADED" , People LAUGHED.

As I cry for the "SOVERNITY" of America, everyone has lost LIBERTY. This is no longer a Free Nation, It is a Nation of "CORPORACRACY" an that Group is the "ENEMY of Individual Freedom".

That group binds labor in such underhanded twisted manor, it resembles what could be precived as "MODERN SLAVERY FOR MONITARY EXCHANGE" (MSME).

There is a "SECOND AMENDMENT" for a good reason. Consider where you chose for your great Grand children to SURVIVE ?
