You vote in a union they will close the doors and the job market is not exactly booming in this area. Just remember its just a matter of time before another factory in Dexter starts laying off. Look at the market, now is not the time to be out of work. We are hanging on by a thin thread as it is.

As I stated in an earlier post on this thread, my son is now working at the Tyson formerly IBP) plant in Joslin, Ill. I talked to him last night on the phone. They get one 15 min break, payed for by the company and one half hour lunch break. He told me that breaks start as soon as you leave the line and you have to be back on the line exactly 15min or 30min later. By the way, theey have the same union that was trying to get into our door- United Food and Commercial Workers.

i have worked around a union for several years. i was never in one, but it seems to me all it does is give a worthless waste of oxygen a voice that they should not have anyway. most of the people who are involved in grievances are typically shit stirrers. if i were in the union i would more often than not want to tell them to shut up and get back to work.

Take advice from a union worker of 12 years, I work at Faurecia, a union only helps the lazy people, and from what I hear Tyson is full of them. The union here costs jobs, it does not create them, trust me you are much better off without a union!

is there a lot of favoritism still being showed by some of the supervisors towards their @ss kissing favorites???

Are you relieved from the line and given bathroom breaks every few hours???

Is the sexual harassment still going on there, as it once was???

YES, why not!! They could get more money, better benefits, safety issues brought forward & resolved- could make so many things better! Unions can do ALOT of good ,but if your union officials aren't worth a sh#t, that could be a problem. Got to have people who will STAND UP to the Company & fight FOR you!! IF the Company WANTS to move, they will do it anyway- Union or not. The factories in Poplar Bluff should also get Unionized!!!!
