I totally agree with your sentiments. All ex Lear employees boycott their product( tell ya friends too) all vehicles that contain Lear product do not buy it. If you have no choice then buy the vehicle that contains the least Lear product.
This is the only way to hurt big corporations. Do not buy their product.
Lear are saving millions by moving western operations to low cost countries. Boycott Ford if asked why say cause you use Lear. Ford will soon move suppliers.

Thanks,
I just want to say sorry for the foul language on my post, I was having a hard time with all this and it was not right to say the F word and to tell people to go to hell. But what Lear is doing is wrong and this is my last word on this.

To OSCAR82AA,

There is no need to apolagize. I don't think anyone blames you for being upset. Lear promises to keep you working and then stabs you in the back. Here in Roscommomn we got the work from Moorestown because we are close to you but Lear changes its mind and says close Romulus. Go figure. Lear's motto is ADVANCE RELENTLESSLY not against the competition but against its hard working employees. They should add to it, BOHICA.

With a name like Oscar, you could move to Mexico and become a supervisor. I hear things aren't as gret as they seem in Mexico.

TAKE CARE AND HAVE A GREAT DAY

Cry me a river. Let's blame everyone. Did the UAW promise you a job for life? Did Lear? grow up. I also find it hard to believe that you had no union in your plant for five weeks. What about alternates? Where was your reps? what were they doing? If you want your union dues back, then give back the wages you earned for almost 23 years.

TO WHATEVER,

You sound like a complete moron. You must be LEAR MANAGEMENT. You are right. As long as there is a contract Lear should be made to keep it until the contract expires. Lear should also tall you the truth not like they did ELSIE ot do you forget what Lear did there?

To you WHATEVER, I say BOHICA

To Cry-Baby OSCAR82AA,
For 23 years Lear took care of you, your family, you mortgage, your cars. You should stop and think about the reasons why Lear Romulus lost the business to a competitor. Oh here a reason! you made too much money and benefits were too generous. You are such an idiot that you didn't even appreciate the Union efforts that fought for you and your idiosyncrasy for the last 23 years. You have shown your true colors.

FORD-- FIX OR REPAIR DAILY. It isn't my spelling. It is my typing.

But your grammer needs correcting. I SORRY sounds like baby talk. your is you are or in other words, you're. Back to the fourth grade.

DO YOU KNOW, wHAT IS HARD AND LONG ON A FORD EMPLOYEE?" FOURTH GRADE

If Roscommon closes, I will go back to school and become a 4th grade teacher and teach remedial English to displaced FORD CULOS.

ROSCO HAS SPOKEN

Mark my words, it is closing and you just don't realize it. Get your affairs in order. IPS plants don't have the life expectancy of the BIG 3. Lear got its business by underbidding its' competition. The cycle completes itself by Lear being underbidded. Hey, you may have to move your trailer to another state. Good news, Burger King now has internet capabilities [WIFI]. So on your next break, while working there, you can respond to me. I use to watch the Dukes of Hazzard. Roscoe was the boot licking idiot sheriff. Kind of fitting reading your posts!

TO WHATEVER,

I eat at the finest resturants not BUGGER KING. You must eat there since you know about their internet. I don't have to move to another state, your old lady[I do mean old) has begged me to move in with her. It seems FORD is not the only that needs to be fixed daily.

HEHEHE

See now you show your true colors by speaking spanish, insulting my wife and me. You lost your job because of you. Every contract that was probably brought back to you was never enough. Your shortsightedness is what left you and your mongrel coworkers always wanting more. Did you ever think that you were over paid? Good Luck to you. Write back in six months and let me know what kind of job you have. "FICH DICH" winner and you reap what you sew

WHATEVER,

The only people that are over paid is the BIG 3, or should i say the EX-BIG 3. Cars are over priced to keep you happy. FORD stock $4. Maybe, FORD needs a bail-out plan like CHRYSLER. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

IGNORANCE IS BLISS. Fourth grader, "you reap what you sew". What are you a ducking TAILOR. Do you know the difference between "sew" and "sow". I don't think so! Oh my GOD another "so". AM I confusing you.

LEAR SITE NOT FORD SITE, SO SEE YOU!!!

ROSCO has spoken.
whatever

Here you go again stupid. Your wages are tied to Ford or other larger companies. See you are a tier 1 supplier. Your plant hasn't been around as long as Ford (and will never be since you lost your job). The higher wages Ford employees make is the reason tier 1 suppliers were outsourced the seats from companies like Ford.

You are right, ignorance is bliss. The Big 3 is not Ford, Chrysler, or GM. It is aerospace, agriculture, and automotive. Glad to teach you something.

All you are doing is whining. Your probably one of them asses that never did anything within your Union but complain to other mongrels. Good luck dipshit in the real world. Looking forward to buying your trailer when it is forclosed on.

TO WHATEVER,

Have your wife show you my bedroom. Or should I say our love nest. She likes my dipstick.

Sow is a pig
Sow is what a farmer does to seeds

So who cares, in the end we all push up daisies.

I AM DONE WITH YOU CULOS.
