Do you think this had anything to do with the Russian/Ukraine conflict with the sanctions against Russian business and individuals?

You all are in for a surprise!!!! Ak is a comin and will run the plant into the gutter!!! Ak just froze up the Ashland works blast furnace yesterday. It's all about profit and no repairs.

They can't fly. They miss more heats in a week than Ashland does in a year and they shut down every day at noon to pray. Better be praying that you can keep your job. None of this acceptable AK procedure.

I wonder how things are going up at the dearborn plant. I know it is probably crazy with all the new safety rules and equipment. I know for instance crescent wrenches are banned at our AK facility. What a joke. And you have to wear kevlar sleeves to make a 15 foot walk from a break room to a restroom b/c you are on a walkway in an "operating area". Sort of.
