Yes. Apparently there was already an arrest warrent out for him while he still worked at TPI.

Makes you feel safe.

Not the one at Bose, I ended up at Pella. Great company and they don't treat the employees like dirt.

How are things at TPI

Upstream,

If you are looking for safety you are at the wrong company.. Thomson Plastics is a dump.

Guys this is a great place to talk, but be careful not to identify yourself. People who are critical of Thomson Plastics tend to get unemployed.

We know who each other are so don't say anything that could ID any of the community; and don't use company computers.

The stabbing was in the paper. They missed that Ruker was an employee.

yeh, when I got here I was excited about working full time again. That lasted about 2 weeks and then they beat it out of me.

Now I come in, take their abuse, and go home. Leave my brain in the parking lot.

Now let's think about this. They don't take care of the press's, they don't take care of the tooling, they use the wrong material and then they wonder why they get bad parts. Must be the operator.

and they think we are stupid.

They want to take it to the next level but we can't get a straight answer on the day to day stuff. When things go wrong they chew our a**. When is management going to take some responsibilty? We are not stupid!

If things were so great where the Michigan Gang came from, why did they leave? I'm tired of hearing it.

Hey friends,
We established this site so we would have a place to talk about working conditions without fear of retaliation. It is a place we can talk about how we could male it better, not just complain. I don't want to be a nag, but we need to be careful about identities. Don't post anything that can be traced back to us. Remember what happened when Barry got in their face about safety. The boys don't take critisium well. Get in line or get gone.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WORK AT TPI, QUIT!! THERE ARE PLENTY MORE HILLBILLIES OUT THERE LOOKING FOR WORK!
BARRY WASN'T FIRED HE QUIT.
WHEN HE SHUT DOWN THE PRESS FOR SO CALLED "SAFETY REASONS" IT CAUSED US TO MISS A CRITICAL SHIPMENT TO A VALUED CUSTOMER.
OUR FIRST PRIORITY IS TO STAY IN BUSINESS THROUGH QUALITY AND DELIVERY!!!

My wife's cousin worked at Continental's plant in Louisiana (CSP). He doesn't know why they left but they left in a hurry. At least Bruce did - he didn't know Kibbey.
