Has anyone been fired lately and won their arbitration cases against AK Steel and got their jobs back? I heard no one was winning their cases.

That is called paying someone off! That is why unions are a joke today! You people pay these people to do NOTHING for you but steal your money, play golf and get paid off by the company to shut their mouths! You need to get some real reps in there that will do some ass kicking and get these people to do their jobs or get them the hell out! If people would stand up like they did way back when, unions would stand for something. However, you people tuck your tails like pansies and they are sitting back laughing at you while they are stealing your money doing nothing for you! If you dont stand up, you have no right to bitch! You voted the idiots in there, now live with it! If your local steelworker union hall people are not doing their jobs, get them out as well! Stand up as a group or they will keep running over you!

We are not terrorists, that is why we have elected union officials we all vote who we want in elections. Our union does a great job, so calm down MONEY and take a chill pill, PS we don't listen to scabs..

You are the one bitching about your officials and people not getting their jobs back. I am not a scab. I dont work for AK and dont need to work for AK. I have a job that I would call equal pay with much more job security and I dont give my wages to a union that does nothing for me. I am not considered a scab because a union does not exist in what I do anywhere. That really doesnt matter anyway. The point is, you got on here bitching about AK and now your backing up. What seems to be the problem? Are you afriad they will track you down? LMAO! They just might! You might want to watch it! They are good at that. They can track me all they want. I dont work for them. They cant fire me. LMAO! And terrorist? Where in the hell did that come from? I never said anything bad about the employees. The employees arent the problem there. The problem is they are getting robbed blind by a union that does nothing for them and it is sad! I am thankful that they have good paying jobs there unlike most of the jealous people in the area always bashing you all. I am not jealous, I am happy for you. I just hate to see the union ripping you off! That is all that I was saying! So you calm down ;)

Excuse me for looking at the incorrect name. May I correct myself and say that one of your coworkers is complaining along with the many other ones about the union not doing their job. I still feel very strongly that you all are getting ripped off my your union. However, its your money and if you choose to pay it out, dont bitch about it.(this goes to the person who started this thread) Where you came up with something about terrorist makes so sense to me at all. Again, I wasnt bashing the employees. I hate to see them pay money to a union if they really are not helping them. According to the many that complain, they dont get much backing. Just another way to rob Americans. Our country seems to be good at doing that to us! Sad, but true. Lets face it, unions are not what they were years ago. I was raised with a very strong union father. If it wasnt a union job, you didnt do it. He would tell you today that it is such a shame what unions have turned into. He said "they wont stand up for themselves because they are too afraid" So basically, you are giving your money away and they do what they want in the end! Why not just keep your money?

Since someone seems to know so much about AK Steel, Is the Plant Manager Gruber gone, I heard yesterday that AK reassigned him. I know he wore out his welcome in Ashland a long time ago,

AK Steel is run like KDMC! A JOKE!!!!! I pray for the day that AK Steel is bought by another company in the US and KDMC is bought by acceditated hospital affiliation and the board at KDMC is dissolved and Fred Jackson and all administration through middle management is let go and the hospital gets a make-over and I'm not talking about the walls and the floor coverings.
CHANGE IS GOOD AND NEEDED BADLY IN ASHLAND!!!!!

You nurses at KDMC need to grow some nads and get the biggest strongest union you can find in the United States to get some support and quit buying their crap that HR at KDMC is your best friend. One good thing that did happen for you is that they did finally wake up and get Mona Thompson out of the Director of Nursing Position. You talk about a lying ruthless woman. If she did not get what she wanted she would make up the documentation and people believed her. OMG!!! Says she is a christian (what a joke) For those of you that were on her list and had documentation made up and lost your job or recieved reminder after reminder until your job was gone. GET A LAWYER!!!!!!! Gordon Dill or go out of town for one!!!! Clean her clock!!!! And I'm sure others will follow.

All you non-union people better take notice. Union membership is dropping look at what is happening to the wage scale and look at what is happening to company profits.

I am in middle management I do not work at AK but my wages are based on what my union scale workers are being paid.

People profits are going up up up and the wages are going down down down. So even if you don't work in a union shop be very careful wishing for their demise you are pretty much cutting your pay with it.

Think about it! once the pay goes down it never comes back up.

No one will ever buy out AK. Mark my words, it will be the same as the coke plant. Ak is just a big patch with more patches on top of it. The management won't allow the problems to be fixed because everything is too expensive to fix, so what do you think will happen when they can't patch any longer? They don't care about Ashland ky, they live in gated communities far away from us. They day the plant can't be patched any longer, the plant will be sold for scrap. Maybe this will be 10 or 20 years from now, but I got out when I saw a chance.
