So does being "in the click" mean you come to work everyday and do your job. well imagine that, a boss likes someone who makes his life easier and don't like people who makes there life harder -- suprise suprise. i bet when the union comes in they won't like people who play the system either. U think there gonna make your boss get off your back because you suck at your job -- there gonna be on your back along with your boss

Would a union rep come to Circleville Lamp Plant and pass out some info at the gate. We need a union and a lot of people want one. Just don't know how about to go about it. I think that would help. Get some info out and set up a meeting.

I heard several people will be protesting at Circleville lamp plant. The week of June 23. The plant will be down except for two groups. Most of the people working will be temps. The full-time GE people will be on lack of work. So people will be out front of the plant protesting with signs. The groups that will be running is for the new lamps for Walmart. So since that is where they're using a lot of temps at they are going there to protest also.

Nobody was offered to take the Temporaries place on the new group or checking bulbs at are rate of pay. What about the people that have more time than people working out there. For example like the warehouse fork truck drivers. It's not fair to the people with more seniority has to take layoff.

We most certainly were, I read it on the bulletin board!!!! and we had to sign up in HR if we were interested in working. Maybe you should read the bulletin board like the rest of us. I'm all about pointing out things that aren't being done right but this time it was, we were given the choice.

I am wondering if any of the GE fluorescent plant still makes the old T-17 and Power Groove lamps? I know a supplier that's looking for them.
