That's what you get for thinking you can never get fired. Can't stand have to TCI employees especially the ones that are in large group of families working there together. Now what are you going to do when your mommy and daddy's are fired too. Whole family is out of work boo hooo hooo. I say karma something and it looks like it bit some of you on the butt. That's what you get for messing with people in this town. You obviously messed with the wrong one this time cause what are you going to say now um I don't have a job and my daddy OH he doesn't either.

My father has been with tci for 16 years. They put food on our table, a roof over our head, clothes on our backs, and we had some of the best insurance in the area. Tci is this and that according to some of you sorry sob's but that has been my fathers life for almost all of mine. My dad has been a mechanic, a driver, and a dispatcher for them. Now garten has the contract, such is life. Grown ass men are on here laughing about the fact a whole bunch of hard-working and some not so hard-working men are going to be unable to afford medications that keeps them alive, will struggle with food and making mortgage payments. It is downright pathetic. If you are the kind of men working for tommy garten I pray to God my family never has to work with any of you. As for tci only hiring family and all that bs. Get your fuckin' facts straight. No other member of my family has ever worked for them and my dad got his job and made a living the right way. He never had to steal and sell cattle and low ball any other person's worth. You men are working for a man paying less than Kroger! Let that set. Congratulations to tommy garten for getting a contract to continue owning most of covington. As for you men laughing at the hardships of other men you will get yours. In the meantime, continue living a sad high-school like life, talking shit and loving drama. Reading these posts set me back to my high school years, and all the immature shit there. Good luck to you all, and when it comes back to bite you in the ass, remember a 21 year old girl told you so. As for the tci employees on here sorry about losing the contract, good luck to you all, and do keep in mind talking shit makes you as low as them.

I feel for the hard working folks at TCI but like any company it was the few bad apples that spoiled the bunch. Does TCI have good drivers? Absolutely. Do they have lazy asses? Sure do. Don't think for a minute the mill didn't question how certain shifts averaged 30 minute responses while others average over an hour! And that's a fact. Lorie camp or someone in the front office could have fixed it. Other drivers should have seen this problem and fixed it. The wheel wasn't broken, it was a few spokes. Everyone can blame computer systems, etc but the fact is it should never take over an hour to get from pinehurst or low moor to the mill. Don't think for a minute that if gartens response time slips that low that they won't be replaced too. 12 Pulls then hiding isn't gonna cut it

why so much bickering about garten winning a contract? remember when TCI took over JENNINGS AND WEBB ? wasnt so much bickering then.......remember people its contract work and MEADWESTVACO is gonna award it to the lowest bidder and thats the bottom line !

yes Tommy is getting tci and he will kept all the bad drivers and let the good ones go. Tommy thinks he owns covington but for me and my family will leave covington before i work for him. i have talk to his drivers and they work 16 hours a day to make very little money.
Move away don't work for him....you think any one cares?...I work for tommy....I work 14 days a month and still get my 40 hrs a week...and make damn good money....and trust me..over half of the t.c.i. Drivers are worthless....if they don't wanna do something they run and pout to the union......while working for tommy if you do what your told and expected to do you have it made.....he wants people that get the job done some people can't handle that

I think people tend to forget what the union is for. Some use it to keep from working.$15-$20 per hour and working on average 14 days a month is pretty good for me. A week off once a month and overtime available sometime. And no union to take part of my check. All I have to do is show up and do what I am paid to do. Plus 401K, insurance, vacation, paid holidays. Not bad for this area. Yes no doubt there are some issues but isn't that pretty much everywhere. As for Tommy Garten, he is human, and may not be perfect, but there is no one that can say that the Gartens don't work hard for what they have and are trying to do for this community. Has he made mistakes, ABSOLUTELY. But he also had to pay for those mistakes and does everyday. Is he tough to work for? That depends on the individual. Go in and do what you are being paid to do and you shouldn't have to worry about your job. I'm sure if Mead Westvaco hadn't been dissatisfied with the quality of work they were getting from TCI they wouldn't have found it necessary to look elsewhere and they will surely be looking again if they become dissatisfied with Garten.

That's all a union is good for. They keep the costs high and the ethics low. I'm not affiliated with eithercompany but cant stand a union. We could stop highering immagrants if people would shut their mouths andwork! I'm sorry so many are losing their jobs but happy that there is one more union down
