Imtimidation? Are you kidding me, you dumb sh!t? Do you realize how lucky you are? To be compensated at the level you currently are for your obvious dismal level of education? Please wake up! You don't deserve to work at a place as nice as Rotek. If it were my company, someone would have already been made an example of last week. So stop your posturing and puffing your chest out, because you hold no power here. You are totally and 100% replaceable. We all are. Now stop biting the hand that provides for you and your families well being, and get back to work dummy.

I've heard talks of education, who was the better trucks, blah blah blah.

It comes down to DOLLAR SIGNS.

Rotek North and South make the same wages. cost of living is about 9-12% higher in Aurora than Florence. With that said.... we are on the same playing field.

You florence guys listen up.... Dr. T doesn't give a fucking shit about you or us. He's on a mission to DESTROY the wages/ benefits/ perks in both places, not just north.

Do you really think a guy that sits in his fucking office and thinks about how to save some dough all day, won't think about Kentucky wages being too high? Don't forget he runs your shit too.

What you all need to realize is gender re- orientation surgery is quite expensive .Thus ,I require all to do their part and give. I can't live in this body any longer. As you all know, I behave like a spoiled, foul tempered, brat:( I can't control these feels. Once I turn my bratwurst into an acorn squash I promise thing will be much better.

These guys with no education driving a tow motor wanting to be paid $25 per hour! What a joke! You skilled machinists shouldn't! Have to carry these unskilled guys. I heard the union leaders are all tow motor guys. No wonder they don't want to give up on the gift horse called Rotek,

First, I want to thank the Record Courier for posting the pictures of the people on strike. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and also that you can't see the forest for the trees. North and South, in these next few postings from Midnight Son, you are about to hear my opinion of what I really think is going on.

this is for local 8565.... gudszend & girman are sending 3 machines to florence. two 78" gidding & lewis, and from rrm one 66" bullard vtl this was posted friday 2-1-13. meeting were on the following monday, a lot of guys here thinks this is better than money or benefits. management here is saying thay will be running in 45 days. thay are trying to keep rrm running up there, and keep us in forging. but it looks like thay will have to buy some. we are very low on forging. thay are still not telling us about the new military contract, but we all know it's here. you have to wonder what ease thay are hiding. glad to see you standing up to greed. not many down here have any ideal what a union is.

already knew the machines were going down there 2 weeks ago. new contracts don't surprise me, i said awhile back that management wants us to take cuts because of huge deals coming in so they can collect a bigger bonus. and florence just wait....if they are willing to pay $12-14 an hour for scab workers here wait till they cut your pay because you have no protection...good luck

How many old 35 plus year employees do you have down there Florence? Tow motor, shipping, and assembly jobs are usually reserved for those guys who have destroyed their bodies climbing around on machines. In many cases, longer then I've been alive. Do you think these people deserved to be paid peanuts after dedicating their lives, missing their kids grow up, ect?

As for our union officials, no, they are not tow motor drivers. Nothing wrong with that if they were. They are guys with nearly 40 years that have worked in both plants. Top grade machinist, Guys that have nearly all qualifications under their belt. Guys that have forgotten more then you will ever know. Think about that tonight while your sister is tossing your salad, you backwards waste of a human being.
