They gave notice to anybody with 7yrs or less, to cover their ass with the WARN act. It's in anticipation of workers with seniority that will possibly bump from Dunkirk. No doubt, eliminating a lot of good workers. The union is strictly seniority based, which is ridiculous, and will enable a lot of lousy workers to retain a job, while forcing some people who actually perform work, to unemployment.

I'm anti-union myself, but I have empathy for you guys. Where's your union now to support you and make sure the best emplyees keep their jobs? Everything's a racket nowadays. You're younger guys are trying to get solid footing and now get laid off and your older guys who should be in a nice spot have probably pissed away their earnings for years but rely on being your senior to keep your job.

When I worked a Purina, which was NOT a union plant, the seniority method was used. This is not just a union thing.

Before the whole Fredonia plant is shut down. It will be shut down before April. Sad but true.

I believe that in any job, union or non union, positions should be awarded and maintained on a performance basis. Going off of just seniority is conducive to creating lazy workers with a sense of entitlement. I'm not saying that this is the case with every worker, but it's a high percentage. You see people get fired over, and over again, the union gets them their job back, and they don't skip a beat. When a good position comes up, they'll still get it, because of their seniority. It's an absolute joke.
