They really should go union though! If enough workers were to stand together and fight for themselves they could get things done instead of constantly being shit on!! They work you like a slave without any appreciation for your hard work and dedication. I say lets get it together and do something!!

If it is that bad why not go somewhere else? Watch for them to shut down or move the plant if union thugs take over.

They will shut down reguardless I think. It did good when Dan owned it. now it's backstabbing and cut throats. BUT, people go there because they will hire anything allmost and its a paycheck for awhile til you find better. but really, how many people don't cry about there job no matter where they work?

That may be the problem....they will just hire anybody! Everyone knew what it was when they went to work there....if you don't like your situation change it!

Once again a union would be helpful in that case because they would be pickier about who they hire. A union will always be in the benifit of the workers and that is what scares management.

Bella Morte, stop being a dipshit. Unions may have been needed in the old days when it was at it's worst and there were no discrimination or safety laws BUT not now. You get paid for what you're worth. If you don't like it, get an education and use your experience at Sun to move up. You force a companies hand too much, and they will move. Why put up with under qualified workers shit because of a Union.

FTW Right to Work state.

Why do you have a problem with people who are trying to leverage their position for maximum benefit? That's what capitalists do.

Sales minus costs of operations equals profit. You drive the costs up in this very competitive economy and your plant is history. The union toads will come out with" They're just trying to call our bluff" , " They are to big to close down", "Stand together and we will get "them" to their knees",and whatever else they can dredge up to get the dues money flowing. Did you ever notice when a union manages to close down a plant for good, they don't help pay your bills and feed your kids? Be very careful if you don't have the means set aside to live for a few years without a job. Be careful if you have mortgages and car payments. It's too easy to pack up a company and move elsewhere because the American consumer really doesn't care where a product is made anymore. Another thing to consider is after a plant is forced out and you look for work, having been an employee there hurts you on your job search. Employers don't want the negative attitudes that follow union workers affecting their business. I use a professional background check company to screen applicants and some of the things we look at because of previous problems are drug terminations,bad credit, job hopping,and previous employment in a union shop.

If you weren't going to answer the question why did you respond to the post? There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with people trying to leverage their position for their own personal gain.

Leverage against what? There is no factory job on the face of this earth that is 100% perfect. Organizing groups will concentrate on as little as 2% problems out of 98% satisfaction and dwell on the negatives and overshadow the positives.. It's too late when you're looking at a locked gate and saying that it really wasn't such a bad job after all. Too bad, you won the battle........and lost the war.

You're on target. Too many whiners don't have the balls to present a problem to their supervisor,the boss, or the human resources department. The talk in the shadows and stir up all the yapping chihuahuas and build up a splinter in the hand to a full amputation and then call in outsiders to make the situation worse. Then they have the gall to bitch when they let someone talk them out of a job. Go figure.

Hmm strange I've went to my supervisor, and HR and basically been told to suck it up and deal with it. I've worked there too damn long to just up and walk away and I'm sorry my parents raised me to fight for something I believe in. Unions can be a huge benefit to workers as it helps provide job security and the gaurentee of benefits. You do not lose your say, in fact it helps to make sure your voice is heard! And the company is worried about a union for just that reason! Why else would they have had their big meeting about social media sites and talking about factory policy the other day if they weren't?

All unions do is protect the person that doesn't want to work. If you work for a place and they pay decent and have decent benefits you should happy that you have it as good as you do. Now I'm not saying that there aren't company's out there who don't treat their employees as well as they should, but idk if a union is the way to go. Just my thoughts.
