Cummins has two Fleetguard plants in the USA. The plant in Iowa is slated to move to Mexico starting in November of this year. News came out today! Is Fleetguard-Cookeville moving? Thank Bill Clinton for NAFTA--Mr. Democrat helps the poor man. hahaha Maybe the UAW needs to send more money to the Democratic party so they can look out for us common folk.

nafta was started by Reagan,helped by Bush SN. pushed by Clinton and Bush jr. and continued by Obama so both parties droped the ball on jobs and the American people quit working and allowed foriegners to cap our job market and now we produce nothing and depend on service jobs that is not sufficient to support our work force.Where are the unions going to get thier revenue since they have forced us out of a decent job.

I don't think Fleetguard will move to Mexico. Cummins recently closed their Salt Lake City plant and moved it to Cookeville. It wouldn't make any sense for Cummins to move the SLC plant to Cookeville only to turn around and move it to Mexico. If they were planning on closing the Cookeville plant I'm sure the SLC plant would've moved directly to Mexico instead of to Cookeville.

Ole GW Bush renewed NAFTA and also let CAFTA come in during his 8 years...alot of these companies move down there so they can avoid the corrupt UNIONS...and the mafia that runs them of course...

Don't you know when you pay your dues your paying for a Gotti's Cadillac payment??

I hear that they are moving four of the lines out of the Cookeville Plant as well. Does anyone know what lines they are thinking of moving?

leaders met in San Antonio, Texas, on December 17, 1992, to sign NAFTA. U.S. President George H.W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican President Carlos Salinas, each responsible for spearheading and promoting the agreement, ceremonially signed it. The agreement then needed to be ratified by each nation's legislative or parliamentary branch.

Before the negotiations were finalized, Bill Clinton came into office in the U.S. and Kim Campbell in Canada, and before the agreement became law, Jean Chrétien had taken office in Canada.

now, who started this, Republicans?

Why would Fleetguard close the plant in Lake Mills, Iowa which is non-union and line workers make maybe an average of 12$ hour and not the plant in Cookeville which is union and I believe pays quite a bit more per hour than 12$ along with pretty nice benefits?
I have also heard about the lines from cookeville moving, or at least similar ones being set up in Mexico. Anyone?
Anyone know when the union contract with Fleetguard Cookeville expires?
hmmm

The contract at Fleetguard Cookeville expires in February, if I am not mistaken. Is this scare tactics: guess again!! The most money saved would be to cut out labor: the most expensive labor ie. Cookeville. When is the president of Fleetguard coming to Cookeville? The messenger is coming. Look around people and show me some manufacturing left in Cookeville?

You are right on the money. Our politicians have sold us out to foreigners and no one is trying to stop Nafta. People, we are up shit creek because of greed. And it is not Union greed.

Excellent point. Both parties are to blame for this American-job-killing scheme. For those who remember, Ross Perot coined the term "giant sucking sound" to describe the rapid flow of jobs from the U.S. to Mexico. The suction continues.

And somehow they think building a business park will bring more factory jobs to Cookeville. We can't even keep the ones we have.
