Are you talking about Special Metals?
They are capable of shutting down at any time. The place is being managed by a bunch of greedy, power hungry, geniuses with no common sense.
No they wont help relocate unless you are in upper management and are here to rape and pillage what is left of the facility.
Go ahead and start packing. You'll be moving soon!

They were talking about temporarily shutting down for the week of Thanksgiving and maybe the last 2 weeks of December. PCC won't shut that place down as long as they can keep claiming loss on taxes on it. Huntington is where they launder their money!!

Caledonian Alloys is the laundry mat for the bick bucks!! Pick up your scrap, excuse me, revert, today at scrap price, sell it back to you tomorrow at raw material price!
Hey, you got to buy your raw material someplace, might as well be from your other building that you remodeled and gave to us.
Thanks for making us the world leader in nickel, cobalt and titanium alloys recycling! We couldn't have done it without you!

Then go get yourself a decent job. Nobody gave me this one. I did what I had to to get it. Typical lazy Huntington trash. Assuming that everyone that has something is just lucky and that they wish they could just be handed a good job. That's not how life works pal.

I tried to tell everyone at contract time what was going to happen. Nobody either didn't want to listen or buried their heads ( in their own azz . The company is only here to Take, and our union leadership is right in bed with the company. It's a sad time be a blue collar worker here. If your wearing a (white hat, you will get your over paid check and your incentive bonus, no worries. Our gutless union will continue to get our dues, and finally, the bottom feeders, the only thing left, the after birth for us. Mark it down, there will be a layoff before Xmas. Merry HO HO

They already have laid off. 25 brought 10 back..7 to thistle and 3 to vim. Not to say it won't happen again. With the way they are running this place we will all be lucky to have a job.

Since you use the name "USWA", are you part of the Union leadership and are you in bed with the company? If you are not part of the leadership, and being so intelligent and having the ability to foresee bad things coming our way, why aren't you in the leadership?
I think maybe you are a loudmouth supervisor or other company representative that just likes to stir sh1t. Obviously, if you tried to tell everyone, but noone listened, people must not respect your opinion. Try calling the Ethicspoint hotline, if you really care and have the balls. It is anonymous and is the ONLY way to get the information on how things are REALLY being done to someone above King Dabbs and his Band of Thieves!

ETHICSPOINT for Special Metals Corporation:
1-866-493-1855
Maybe a few phone calls with a little information will get Donegan or Buck or someone to see that just because the numbers are being hit doesn't mean all is good on the home front. This place is in a death spiral and someone needs to stop it SOON!
Give them a call. Might just save all of our jobs!

Just got a big order!! 5 zillion pounds!!$100 a pound! 5 years non-stop production on this order alone! Just waiting on final paperwork but we've already asked for 100 new hires. Get them here by Monday, they'll be fully trained by Wednesday.
Thursday and Friday are holidays so we better shut down until next Monday. If we keep those 100 new employees, we'll have to pay them holiday pay. Better have a layoff on Wednesday. Call them back after holidays.
Never mind, lost another order. Better make sure noone is selling potato chips and pop and that they have their earplugs and hardhat on so we can force them to work 12 hours a day, 7days a week for 2 weeks cause we're really shorthanded!
Hope they join the employee stock purchase plan so we can have something positive to tell them at next quarterly meeting!
Shew, got another meeting, line walk, conference call in 5 minutes! I hope I don't get my a55 tore again for losing earned standard hours while my men were performing CPR on me!

The only way we can lose an order is if we have an order. For business to be the way it is, we are either losing a bunch or not getting any.
Are we still shutting down for 2 weeks at Christmas and New Years?
