Thanks for taking the time to talk to us, and looking forward to the 24th. I have a better understanding about what happen up north, very sorry and hopeful that it will all work out for you all. The thought of working for the same guy is mind boggling. I all so have a better understanding about the tier 2 thing, and how it could be trouble for anyone that was hired before 11-1-12. I wondered why Nancy Waggoner (H.R.) couldn't make eye contact with anyone when she said we were going to that, in the last meeting we had. On all the questions that were ask, all your answers seemed to be down to earth. Every employee should attend the next meeting. Elk's Lodge RT.25 Florence, March 24 at 2:00

I would rather have Jim leading us, then a union.
It` spelled Komatsu , if you can`t spell it you did`nt run it
they went back to Japan, and we still run some.
lets know the facts here, you dumbass fucked up the groves, go sell this shit to some body else. how DO YOU like me now.
The truth about Komatsu is when the economy tanked back in '09, Japan unlike America, decided to take care of it's own before others and moved the work back over the pond. It may now be coming back. The rest of your post doesn't mean much for a reply.

Oh wow Robtek! You are so cool. Laying around all day, "doing nothing". What a great example! You get to be a burden to the State of Ohio, Rotek, and your fellow tax payer! You must be soooooo proud. I bet you won't attempt to find a job until it runs out on you huh? Good for you!
Unemployment Compensation, in Ohio and every other state, except Pennsylvania, is paid for by the EMPLOYERS. It is an EMPLOYER tax and by law cannot be used for any other purpose. The amount of money kept in this fund can fluctuate, so the EMPLOYER's tax rate fluctuates to keep it at it's proper funding level. Rest assured that Rotek is still paying it's unemployed employees. Cash your checks without the guilt.

Eddie, noone cares what you post on here, nor do any of your coworkers want to sleep with your wife. Please, STFU.

Jason, the world didn't end last Dec. 21st, so I'm not gonna mess with ya, you still have 20,000 rounds of ammo. Anyone that knows you, knows you NEVER STFU.

Sean, it's Friday. Sign your check and give it to your wife and vote, whatever she tells you to. And STFU.

Peanut, if it wasn't for your 200 missed matches a month, Rotek wouldn't be in the mess, it's in right now. And how much did that little urinal and water fountain cost? More Rotek money you've wasted. You should always STFU.

It's been proven that peanut has more mismatches because he runs more volume so if you wanna talk let's talk percentage of correct matches or ratio rather than numbers. BTW hard turn has the hardest job machine wise. Closest tolerances least amount of predictability and has to compensate for other operators mess ups like gear cut and VTL or cells. So Chill.

I'm sure you of all people here all week I'm sure have never gotten a DF. Never EVER? Or was it not your fault? Or wait you probably don't do anything to get a DF.

The meeting on the 24th is not a secret this time because they will be getting a head count to see what interest is there. We know they are well short, but let's keep it that way. Spread the word to avoid this meeting. If you have any questions come talk to me but do not go to this meeting and spread the word to all your coworkers.

When you miss your bosses ass a d stick up for management like you do, I'm pretty sure you're accepting his DNA and giving him a rimjob at the same time. Just sayin'. If that's your way, fine. Just keep his DNA to yourself. Keep the rim remnants too. Have a good weekend with Kevin.

I'm glad you think you carry us. That is some Jim Goddard talk right there. Fack of the matter is rolling mill carried us all specially in the slow times.
Well lets see. You have wire race because we needed the room and we showed you how. If you make wires why do we buy them or get the ones we need from Germany ? You have the sound proof rooms for medical bearings we had and showed you how to make those too. Shall I go on. We had Kumotsu here first then sent to you guys and you lost the order years ago because you screwed them up not to mention the grove bearings we have been doing for you guys since you screwed those up too. Better definetly not, faster possibly some operations but how long does it really take to do a bearing the size of a wheel on a car. You guys are awesome really. Go ahead pat your self on the back. Florence is the dream team of Rotek. Haha that's funny. You guys and your salary couldn't manage a Dairy Mart even if it was closed. You should just face it now. If they close Aurora they will close Florence. So go ahead root against us your just rooting your self out of a job.
Brothers. You are only looking out for yourself. You do not care about Florence other than that We can help you.

A few things you must realize: For one thing we are not the cause of this lockout- you are. And because of that we are not required to look for work. It was because of you sadistic assholes as to why it took us 6 weeks to get unemployment. WE WANT OUR F***ING JOBS BACK ! WE WANT TO WORK ! BY NO MEANS WILL I COME BACK THERE WHILE THERE ARE SOME OF MY UNION BROTHERS TAKING UP TO A $7/HR PAYCUT ! YOUR MEDICAL PLAN YOU TRIED TO FORCE ON US SUCKS! TAKING AWAY PAID HOLIDAYS IS BULLSHIT! HOURS OF VACATION PAY= F*** YOU TOO! 2 TIER PAY LEVELS- LIKE UAW BULLSHIT! DOUBLETIME- YEH RIGHT SO WE WOULD HAVE TO WORK EVERY SUNDAY ! TAKING AWAY SENIORITY RIGHTS FOR OUR MOST SENIOR EMPLOYEES ! I'd like to know who you are, or who the hell you think you are ! I've spent 12 yrs. at this company, I am not willing to be shit on ! I hope I will be standing in front of this company, when they shut the doors on your dumb-ass !
