so, with bonus season approaching, have any of you heard any numbers about our bonus(s) such as, are we just getting the one measely, toss-us-a-bone bonus? Or are we going to get something meaty this time? trust me i dont wana hear a bunch of smartass remarks! ive worked there 8 years now and ive dealt with the diluting of our benefits just like the next person.. im just curious what the scoop is on the production floor concerning our next bonus. IF we get one. LOL Im not going to argue with any of you or reply to your replys or inputs, so please just insert your opinions, comments, or maybe rumors that you,ve heard. i dont wana turn this thread into a bashing on Toyota and how theyve stripped anyone of this or that. Like i said, Ive been there 8 years so ive witnessed plenty. and YEA im aware of how our bonuses have diminished over the years and im thankful as hell i dont live off those bonuses or plan my finances based on a bonus thats crazy! SO, anyone heard any good rumors?:)

In a rough year with a tough economy my understanding is there are going to be bonuses but nowhere near what they used to be. And yes, considering what our counterparts in Michigan are dealing with we should feel damn lucky right now. However, things tanked all around us but we never missed a beat and busted our a$$es just the same.

FYI: My cousin was let go from GM two years ago after 17 years of service. He was just notified a couple of weeks ago that GM and Ford are going to hire 2000 employees by the end of this year, 4000 total in the next 3 years and he was welcome to apply. The catch: the UNION has agreed to a starting wage of $10.50 across the board. A bitch slap in the face to a group of people who left making $36. Cash that bonus check and take your family on a well deserved vacation. You've earned it!

Don't "expect" more from the same situation. It's like an abused woman staying with the man that beats her. If you want a union then go work at a union plant. You think a union will solve all your problems because it would be a change. Don't sit and cry about change then do nothing. Go work for Ford in Louisville.
Also don't cry about a bonus then go WASTE it on a vacation. If you need the bonus to live..well then you might need to re-think your lifestyle.

lol. its hard to fathom people fighting for lower wages. what a bunch of jerk offs. lol.
you say the union agreed to $10.50/hr, like that proves a point? what would the company have done if they didnt have to bargain? why dont u mention every state and federal agency (union), that gets raises and retirement benefits every year while all non-union workers are losing theirs?? the only difference is they have the common sense to ask for it.

Your sense of entitlement is sad. Don't ever try to get on the show Survivor...your lazy union way would have you voted off in about 10 minutes.

union/ non union, there are cry babies on both sides, there are people on both sides that don't know or understand, only pass on gossip from whoever that don't know..... history has proven union jobs make more money,have better benefits and safer working conditions. however this is not always the best, there are crooks in the unions,buyer be ware.

Unions are a bunch of thieves. They take your hard earned money but don't do much for you. F**K unions!

There are people that would love to have your job at Toyota. Stop complaining about bonuses and do a little research and see how many businesses in this "Great Recession" are giving out bonuses. Be happy with what you have cry baby!

Toyota earned 10 fold the profit of any big 3 competitor over the last 5 yrs but cant pay their employees the same amount of pay as the big 3. Yea, that union stuff is useless

Toyota is smarter than the "Big 3" put together. That's why they didnt need the US Govts help to bail them out. Toyota will never be union here in good ole KY. Might as well forget about it...

you have a good point. but you forgot to mention the big 3 employees are smarter than toyota employees. toyota workers will work twice as hard for less pay and next to no pension. makes sense to me. be proud brother

I was going to reply to your post, but then I realized that I don't care anymore. If you still work at tmmk I hope you stay healthy long enough to go down with the ship. Because you deserve it. Hope you can live on $1600 a month because that's your pension. Have a nice life on trim 1 or chassis 2 or where ever. Leave your health and body parts at the turnstyle on your way out.
