You will look real silly, standing alone, out in the cold. Sounds just like Aurora huh? Consider it practice, because thats what you will be doing if a union made it in here.

I wont be there, because it's been canceled due to lack of willing participants

He sorgen sich Kerle nicht die paycuts sind klein, nur zwei bis drei Dollar pro Stunde. Das ist nur ein Paar hundert Dollar ein Woche.

Ihnen werden viel von den Überstunden angeboten, zum aller möglicher paycuts wieder gutzumachen. Sie bemerken nicht einmal die paycuts, wenn Sie viele Stunden über die Zeit hinaus bearbeiten.

Seien Sie glücklich, dass Sie einen Job haben, der mehr als Mindestlohn macht. Viele Leute möchten einen Job so haben. Ohne einen Verband haben Sie keine Wahl.

I am for Rotek! I will not stand by and watch my career and home for all these years ruined by a bunch of children.

No meeting Sunday. Rotek has won. Despite the tyranny of a few (replaceable) men.

In 2 months they have nearly replaced us (10%). Truth(salary) doesn't want to lose his $200,000 home and his career (overpaid salary job). Just like the rest, he posts lies, because he is so scared of Florence organizing. They are starting to panic now ! LMFAO

Secure your future and be at:
MEETING SUNDAY- ELK'S LODGE- 2:00 P.M.

Sand up and fight back:

I understand not being at a meeting you didn't know about, but not missing the one on the 24th at 2:00. I personally, would rather have a committee of my peers look out for the collective interests of the hourly employees, than have the heartless Dr. Tim dictate what my future is. He cares about nothing about anyone at Rotek, salary or hourly. His only care is the bottom line and big bonuses for himself. If you're worried about the people who may represent you, or even if you're not, run for an office and BE one of the people. Get involved, go to meetings and ask questions and volunteer. Either way, a collective voice is much stronger and louder than that of an individual. Good luck to all hourly employees of Rotek, both North and South.
all hourly employees should go

From my understanding from my compadres up north, is that these meetings are not organizing meetings or union recruiting meetings at all. The intention for theses meetings is to inform you of details on the current situation. And to answer any questions that anyone might have. The workers in Florence must realize that we aren't trying to pressure you into organizing. These meetings are based on facts and to develop a direct line of communication between our facilities. Where these meetings go from here is totally up to the workers in Florence.
I'm going

I know your management team gets on here to say whatever it takes to keep you misinformed. When we came down there, it was for information only. Whatever your membership decides to do from there is up to them. The myths are put to rest and you do see the boat WE are in. Union our not. You are your own judge. You decide if you come next time for more information. Oh, thanks again! You guys were great. I've been telling everyone what a good group of guys you are.

As far as this effort being unorganized. Yes its not being done as smooth or as efficient as it should. But how many times have we tried to do this. I think its only been tried to be done one other time. So no one is exactly sure how to do this! The goal of this though is to get everyone TALKING and DEBATING as a group in what's in OUR BEST INTEREST. THIS is OUR FUTURE!
I agree
