Anyone who is nonunion is either ignorant or a business owner. All reputable skilled professions are union from electricians to plumbers to the NFL. UPS is union and those dudes make bank.

Berry is done as a local employer. They will cut the Evansville "grunt" non skilled work force by two thirds in less than two years.

Berry has a low wage non skilled work force. They pay you people $15 an hour or what? They can pay a Mexican $15 a month and get the same work out of them, why would they not move? Same reason whirlpool is gone.

I highly doubt that Berry would spend the money to build a new corporate headquarters in Evansville and then close the plant or reduce its workforce.
I dont understand the union argument. How would Berry employees benefit? Why is it union or failure? And why is there not the same argument for Sabic? This seems awfully pointed at Berry without merit.

The union argument is more of a level playing field for the workers in all areas. There is strength in numbers idea. All of the firemen, police and teachers belong to a union for a reason. There is a lot of good in them.

I think that most of the work at berry in the future will be white collar. Here is their HQ but that does not mean they have to keep high employment numbers here. It does make sense to have the labor south if the boarder. Toyota has HQ in Japan and they employ here cause the local economy is far cheaper to pay labor than in Japan.

Big. The people of Berry are highly skilled and very talented an Berry cannot replace them with unskilled labor.. Like they could with the union labor at Whirlpool.. That's why they won't move or become union. They pay a great living wage and they take good care if their people. UNLIKE the union did for its people at Whitlpool.

Berry didn't open a new plant in Mexico. They acquired it through one of the businesses they bought. They only ship to places in mexico and south America. I am also a former union worker that moved to a non union position at berry. I am better off than I ever was at AT&T. I am still pro union in skilled trades. However my old union could never do for me what Berry has done!

For years Whirlpool's union local 808 printed a news letter called " The Picket" which caused nothing but problems between management and union workers. This put Evansville on the list of cities that are anti-business and prevented other large companies from starting or relocating here. Fortunately with Indiana being a work at will state more larger companies like Toyota and Honda motors have put many people into good paying jobs.

union all the way. Thats what is wrong with evansville. There is not enough unions. Thats why you have to scrape your rent money together each month to make ends meet. You should be able to set a small portion of your weekly check aside for your house payment. How ignorant can you be? A union is the workers united together so that they are treated right. If that company doesnt want to support the union and moves then we dont need them. You ignorant union bashers are the reason you cant find work around here that pays more than $9 or $10 per hour. If we put our foot down then maybe you wouldnt have to eat ramen noodles to survive

1- never been a part of a union nor do I want

2- went to college and got a degree

3- work at berry and make more than most union workers

4- I can do my job along with other things to help the company(I don't have to go find some old union fu#k to go turn a wrench.

5- unions have a place I suppose but all you do is have to read a little and see they are a thing of the past and cause too many problems

What is the average wage for non skilled grunt line factory work at Berry? I don't think a union would help those poor folks anyway. A union is more for skilled workers like teachers, construction, firemen and police. A trained monkey could sit on a factory line so whatever Berry pays you it is too much and sooner than later the shareholders are going to come calling for more earnings per share and Mexico is the only option thanks to NAFTA.

Indiana being a Right To Work state will push wages and benefits way down. It will take a few years but the state will be near the bottom if you look at the average pay/Benefit per worker.

The only people who are non union are ignorant or a business manager or owner.
You are foolish

Whirlpool made an enormous amount of profit for the share holders and management. Why shouldn't the workers be rewarded? Only someone at the top would have such a negative view of the whirlpool union.

Look at what Toyota is doing now. They are paying "temps" half the meager wage they pay their full time people because there is no Union to try to stop them. Toyota does not make the caliber if car they once did and they will continue to pay the area workers less and less as long as they are in the region. There are corporate talks to move the production to Texas with the other plant because of import export prices and labor are cheaper.
