I've been at the Moorhead plant for nine weeks now. Plenty of experienced hands and good people. You will have some dumb a$$es on any job but I have also worked shutdowns at these plants for five years now. The quality of the union hands pale in comparison to the quality of the so called scabs. Strom Engeneering is top notch and they take great care of their people. I am a millwright working maintenence and I work with some of the best in the industry. We are currently repairing a lot of things the union hands "fixed", if you know what I mean. The union hands were offered a hell of a contract and most of them turned it down without even reading it. I had the pleasure of having dinner with a friend of mine who happens to be a shift supervisor at the East Grand Forks plant. He told me that he talked to several union hands who told them that if they had actually read the contract they would have accepted it. Sheep to slaughter if you ask me. These people are so uninformed and so unable to think for themselves that they simply voted against the contract because they were told to, told they could get more through trying to bully the company. The cold hard facts are that this isn't rocket science and the company doesn't NEED them, the average american can and will do the job. The union hands are nothing special and they need to quit fooling themselves and thinking ACSC can't go on without them. They can and they will. If they think otherwise they are fools. They should accept the generous offer that was presented to them and quit their *****in'. And that's the facts. Jack!
