Our UNION gave up NO CONCESSIONS !! We KEPT OUR DIGNITY !! Read the Detroit Free-Press and see how Ford/Visteon is filing injunctions in court to SEAL any environmental damages they have done in Michigan. Our GOOD MAYOR ( a FINE MAN ) had their BULLSHIT MESS dumped on HIM !( environmental damage at Connersville ) Bye-Bye Visteon ! Anybody in Connersville who would buy a new Ford is IMMORAL !!

I don't know how you could have a clue what went on in that shop if were not employed there. I know that my Grandparents, and my father and my husband all retired out of there. They put in alot of time in to support their family just to be poisoned by the chemicals and to die of cancer. Seems to me they were not paid enough. The ultimate sacrifice for their family.

If you worked there for many years you probably had or have cancer, can you say trichlor?
the long term effects of Trichlorethylene are central nervous system damage. resulting in memory loss. liver and kidney failure (with prolonged exposure), and is known to be carcinogenic. 1 hour of skin absorbtion is equal to 4 hours of vapor inhalation.
It also killed that Ripberger boy back in the late 70's he was recycling it when it overcame him :( very very sad!

I got one too; it said thanX for being a useless UNION Employee and sapping the funds from our endless coffers. We now have employees that appreciate their jobs; their names are : Pedro, Jose, Juan & Carlos

Any USEFUL INFORMATION about the letter will be greatly appreciated by those whom it may help. Other than that, knock off the scatter-brained bullshit. Thank you.

Are you a racist? You are the problem. Look in the mirror. Bad attitude with an entitlemant mentality. Typical of C'ville.

Youre all Visteon morons wrote:
No one is jealous of the former Visteon workers who spent money like they made doctors' and lawyers' salaries and then lost everything because they failed to plan for the future. Nothing was funnier than seeing the looks on the faces of people who had boasted that Visteon would never close that plant, because "the profits from Connersville Visteon carried all the UAW shops."
Most of you dumbasses couldn't have held a job anywhere else. Go suck Larry H., John P., and Visteon now.
LMAO!!!!!
Yep...you are soooo jealous lol. Visteon wouldn't hire you for some reason lol!!

I think the Urban for Congress election committee should receive 10% of ALL Visteon pension proceeds ! After all, he DID get the retirees TWO MORE years on their medical. I am in Urban's ass a lot, but " sometimes "...... he hits on all 8 cylinders and get's it right.

If you got a letter, did you NOTICE that, they are paying the lump sum in December ?? NOT just a coincidence, it's a BRIBE ! It's in THEIR best interest to pay off us " bastard children" FAST to get rid of that obligation. Timing is EVERYTHING ! This reminds me of their " signing bonuses " ( more bribery ) every time they wanted us to vote yes on a contract. Lump sums ( thanks to the Democrats ) are taxed at 30%! You might get some of that back on your tax return...for now. Wait till Obama SEIZES everybody's refunds for medical insurance premiums. He LEGALLY CAN DO THAT. Tax refunds will fade into history. Enough politics...be SMART...because THEY ARE ! They have actuaries ( math people ) who sit all day with calculators and WAGER that WE will DIE before you draw ALL they paid in for us. I will ( at age 51 ) play " beat the dealer " at his OWN poker game. Shucks..I may die NEXT WEEK who knows . IRA's do not PAY anything !( what does ?) Much to consider here. Sure....there will be some who cannot think past their next six-pack or a bag of dope. Think ahead is my advice. There are financial planners/advisors at ANY bank orinvestment firm or even licensed insurance agents as well. Seek professional advice....go from there. Good luck !
