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!!!

Two things to remember:
You never get that money back.
The novelty of a strike wears very fast.

Strike if you truly believe in the principles at stake.
Do not strike just to put the headset down and smoke outside with your "homeboys" for a few days.
Understand what is being offered, be informed, do not rely on your reps or union brothers word. READ the offer.
Eh OK

Go ahead and strike you meatheads.
You make good money for being a bunch of uneducated dropouts (sorry not all) but come on be real, what are you actually going to strike for?
Wake up kick out the CAW, work with the company to make it better not agaianst it and save your Dues for your family not a bunch of suits!
