Why would you get on here and talk all this crap instead of going to the main man yourself? This is just how trouble gets really started and I guess that is what you want Hell if you don't like your Job quit walk away, quit whinning, there's to many people out there needing jobs, and I'm real sure they can replace you when you are gone! BYE BYE CRY BABIES!!!!! GET GOING RUSKINS DOESN'T NEED PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!!!

I think I would just be happy to have job. You all must be or you wouldn't be working there. It should just be like anything else in life, if you aren't happy, leave.

Reading all this, I'm curious who JW- Steward is? Is this someone in charge at Ruskin?

JW is John Wycoff your shop Stewart and yes I'm on the highest paid people in this place and if you think this is a good job you're a f***ing idiot the only reason I'm here is for my family to have insurance but the management we are under now is the biggest joke I've ever seen in this plant without all you morons standing together. To make this place a better place it will never happen. It's just a matter of time before Dan gets rid of all the supervisors And replaces with his Supervisors. Wake up people are Union is selling us out just so they can keep the money flowing we paid to be represented and we need to be represented you must go to the meetings and complain and get what we pay 4 we still have no contract. Wake up wake up wake up!!!!!!!!!! PS Merry Christmas see what your family gifts for 9 dollars an hour if you think this place is so great

I hope that you are not calling me an idiot. lol I never said anything about it being a good job, I don't know anything about it. However, you are working there for insurance. There are lots of people that do not have jobs, nor insurance. You are lucky in that regards.

The reason I asked about that JW person is because I could tell it seemed like he was someone within the company, and he is making the place sound SO much worse than the others on here complaining.:( Because of him, I don't think I would ever want a job there!

He is doing more harm than good for the company he works at.

every job has has its downsides. and no im not a company man, but i am pro union, like it or not. where do you think we would be without the union. and i have worked in places a lot worse than ruskins. why do you think i put my name on here, i have nothing to hide from any of you. so why doesn't everybody act like an adult and put there real names on here. i understand everyone does not agree with me on the way i handle things, i expect that. but instead of worrying about who is sleeping with who, lets work on the real problems. i have told everyone on here i will meet with you and discuss any problem you have. you can ask any of the past stewards this is not an easy job, and the pay really sucks. i damn sure dont due it for the money. and to the person that im writing this response to, why are you sticking your nose in our affairs.

Mister JW so called Stewart name me 1 damn thing you have done for anybody who has had a problem you are nobody it never going to be anybody. You do what Purdue tells you to do how many grievances have you ever settled name 1 that's all I asked for just 1 and you better make sure you don't lie because I'll bust your ass so why don't you shut the f up. I worked there before the Union and the Union promise us the world and we went backwards from the first contract and you can even get a contract settled so you have done nothing . I'll be waiting for your answer. If you think you want to settle this outside of work name a time the place and we will work this out.

Because its on a PUBLIC forum! I don't see why the public doesn't have the right to ask questions. Maybe my children might think about trying to get a job there one of these days. NOT!

I am a boss in the job I work at, it's a good thing I'm not yours, I would fire your a**, but then the union would probably protect you from that.

I realize this is a minor point, but "Stewart" is a surname originating from Scotland, while Webster's Dictionary defines "Steward" as in Shop Steward and means:
(noun): a union member elected as the union representative of a shop or department in dealings with the management.
Sorry to be so nit-picky, but people who misspell words, are perceived by others to be ignorant. Don't let that happen to you. Just sayin'....
As for the union, it is what it is. The Teamsters wouldn't take us... probably.

Well I was going to conduct business with this company until I heard about this shameful website. Clearly this is not the kind of business I want my Company associated with. From the few post I have read, it would appear that the company along with it's employees could have used the money that my contract would have brought in. Sorry-to-say, all of you, supervisor to laborer, union and non-union have just cost yourselve's job security and paychecks. Shameful.....
