The folks that are leaving from Dana to go to BG should be gone by November. A lot of folks who have been in that building for 20+ yrs are leaving to go to this new plant in BG. Dana will lose a lot of good workers.

When it was Eatons, it seemed to be a much better place to work.

Well, see Dana can leave Glasgow and lose some of its 20+ year workforce and move to BG for a younger, cheaper labor force and credit it toward a "relocation".

Only the Brake mfg part of Dana is going to BG. The Brakes were owned jointly by dana and by Bendix corp. The Dana part of the contract runs out in january and they decided not to renew and Bendix decided to move it to BG. Which leaves room for more space in the glasgow factory to bring in more business.

The Dana Plant in Glasgow is going Union very soon - they have already signed their Union cards. Will this be a help to the Glasgow Plant Employees or will it be a hindrance? Anyone with answers, please comment. Thanks.

During the signing of the Union Contract, union officials told us that the plant would be closed by the end of 2010. We got a whopping 2% raise after becomming union and let's not forget the great one month of insurance after termination!! A little 411, America is sinking and there's no life raft.......VIVA LA MEXICO!

I figure the whole plant will be shutdown within 3 years.

This factory sucks ever since Dana took it over. Eaton was a pretty good place to work.

Oh hell you guys, get this - Dana had a few of their guys go down to the plant in Mexico a while back to train the folks who will be doing their jobs down there. It was a regular fiasco from what I heard. They said that the parts they were turning out were in such bad shape that they were being shipped back to the U.S. Dana Plants to be finished out so that each part would not end up being scrap. So my big question is how the H does Dana Corp expect to make such a big fat wad on something like this when they are having to have all the the parts shipped back and forth OTR constantly? That's big time expensive to have the shipping done, especially with diesel fuel the prices they are now.

Also, they (corporate) at some point in time pulled a deal on falsifying earnings and that's what made them have to take this bankruptcy according to all I have read about it. Then they fired some of the top big wigs in corporate that apparently had been doing the falsifications, and turned right around and REHIRED one of them as a consultant during the turn aorund and restructuring for $5 million per yr. These are the kind of fools Dana has in corporate.

I know what your saying, we all thought the same thing when JCI sent ppl down to train at the JCI plant in Mexico, the work that was being done was awful but still the JCI in Glasgow closed and took that part that WE built to Mexico now its true that they already had a plant down there and from what I was told that plant was beautiful!!! Now I really dont understand how if they turn bad parts out how they make any money, but then when I found out that they only paid there ppl 75cets and hr then I seen how they made all their Billions.

Yeah, I understand what you are saying too. I think they must be paying those workers down at the new Dana plant in Mexico about a Peso per hr. They apparently do not know when they are truly being screwed, and without Vaseline either... Getting a Peso per hr, no benefits, nothing. And turning out all the scrap that Dana's American plants can repair to be sent out to be put in the automotive industry. No darn wonder there is so many recalls on vehicles these days, whether it be regular autos or big off road vehicles, they are turning out scrap and corporate big wigs are the main reason behind this. They are all too damned greedy!!!

Hope Glasgow has better luck with the plant manager and personnel manager (JERKS) than we did.

Use to work at the Torque Traction Manufacturing Dana plant here in Virginia. Machined drive shaft components here, and as most of you know our plant here in VA closed in 2007 (closure announced in 2005). We had the same deal here, workers at the VA plant were able to go to Mexico and train the workers that would eventually take our jobs. The workers at our plant that did go train the first go around said that the Mexican workers were lazy and late to the Mexico Dana plant. The few component lines that were removed from our VA facility between 2005-2006 were set-up in Mexico and were set up backwards, TWO to THREE Mexicans on one machine that we did with only ONE worker. We were recognized as a union (UAW) facility, a contract was ratified in 2003.
