Rumor Has It

Lexington, KY

#2 Dec 1, 2009
A company called Metalsa from Mexico has purchased Dana Corp., don't expect any significant changes, locally. Ford has ALOT of equipment in the ETown plant so the jobs will still be there to make Ford frames. The union will protect these jobs as well, and the contract has to be followed. Future union contracts there may be different but Ford will MAKE SURE Dana in ETown will thrive. The other Dana plants around the state and the non-union ones may have a few worries....???
um ok

Rumor has it says it is rumor, period. WTF, are you a computer po po for Topix? Or Dana? This is what was heard and this is the rumor I am telling. Get over yourself and worry about what is going on up there in Toledo. You should know what's going on, you are there. I'm an interested party to an open, free internet forum without worries of threats by you. I have friends who work there and don't they have the right to know what's possibly going on with their workplace? What does this rumor do to you? Are you gonna shut off my computer now? Why would you even say you are WATCHING ME??? Did you start this thread to "test" the viewers knowledge or something? I have nothing to worry about by commenting about what I've heard, are you worried?? So, are you hearing the same and will you please share your thoughts without threats???
So What

I've changed my mind, I don't want to hear from you or know your thoughts on the Dana plant. This thread just became pointless, it's probably a secret someone is hiding from the employees. So You Say can say it to someone else and threaten someone else. Sorry snakeeyes, you probably won't know the truth about Dana until you read it in the newspaper, not on a local forum.

Has something changed since monday morning. Last week i know there was rumors on the floor of this. From what i gathered we were not sold yet. Also it is the stuctural division that is being looked at not the company as a whole. The said company looks to be possibly a good partner but not sure if they have the assets to buy out right. Either way we should be safe for awhile still have a contract. Ford sales look good we are busy and have almost all our team members back in the door. Guess all that can really be done is wait and see what happens.

Yes, ExDana people are welcomed backed. But you start at the bottom like all the other new hires. Everybody that did not cash out has returned back to Dana. They are going to do everything to get all the F150 back from Magna!!!!!!

Watch it in the paper for hiring. Metalsa does not take over until the end of the 1st QTR. The Maintence and Tooling can tell they are making changes to the Etown plant. But who knows what they have up there sleeve but it is looking pretty good for ETOWN KY. Rumor the U line is changing to run 3 shifts. Hydro to get new GM siderail. The Pline runs the F150 frame and orders are up for next year.
