Anyone whole believes there is going to be a straight up merge is a chump. That's like saying the lim guys can just go over to sobeys and keep their seniority over there. Americas is going to be given two options. Either get your ass's to the bottom or gtf out!! Just cause Americas shares the same building and has the same union doesn't mean shit.
NOW THATS YOUR UNION SOLIDARITY GOOD JOB CAW maybe its time to disolve the union just like the nhl usless gangs nowadays

I was a previous employee ( slave ) at atlas. Thank God for that...as far as I am concerned, I believe that every employee ( selector's, RTO, Loaders ) all deserve atleast $28.00 p/hour...No one in management notices the hard work that they all do...when an employee has to bust their ass just to keep a job, sorry but this is not fair to the employees here...this job is not like any other job, this is slaverly.....it's pretty bad when you have to go go go like crazy just to keep your numbers up...To all atlas employee's with the exception of the joke they call management.....stay strong and i hope that you get a big increase come the new contract, cause lord knows you all deserve it....MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

Way to Go CAW!!!!!!!
From 23,000 employees to soon to be 2-3000 at GM.
Drive all the jobs out of the country!!!!
Beer in the lunch bag and sleeping on the line, defending all the lazy while demanding more and more has got you sooooo far.
Congrats to you all.

Now here comes a bigger pool of lazy union workers for LIM to choose from.

P.S. No one to blame but yourselves!!!
