Friend from Utica thank you for honoring Jim's memory with your posts. Thank you for speaking up for someone who can't speak for himself. Jim was a righteous man and would want us to do the right thing. We appreciate and thank you for support of Jim, Lori and the kids.

To second 1december6's post - please let detectives know if you know what happened that night. We all know Jim would do the same for his fellow employees.

Sodecia doesn't care about safety period. Push parts - good, bad and ugly. Osha has them under their radar, but too little too late. Other federal agencies need to go through their facilities. Imagine what they would find.

It has been over 3 months since the accident - please if anyone knows anything come forward... Even if it was a accident, the family will understand I'm sure.. They just want peace for Jimmy. Thank you!

What's new at Sodecia? I hope steps are being taken to make it safer for the rest of the employees. Please let us know of any changes.

If you have any information about what happened to Jim please let us know. You can email at [email protected] if you don't want to post publicly or you can always call the Sterling Heights Police Department. Thank you for any help you give.

I am a writer for a major newspaper in Michigan. I recently worked for Sodecia for nearly a month. I am writing an article about my experience. I actually met the owner and his son and wad able to talk with them on some issues. Story coming soon..oh; needless to say I was fired after speaking on their slave type work environment.

This accident never made the newspapers or tv for that matter. It happened at around 12:15 am. Can I ask why you worked there for a month or is all that in the article?

Anything new going on at Sodecia? Anyone heard any new information on what happened to Jimmy? Perry, has that article been published? What paper will it be in so I can watch for it.

I doubt "PERRY" is a writer, as he cannot even put together a simple forum post with proper spelling, grammar, or structure.

Well, just trying to keep this alive. We still don't know what happened.

Also, with the creation of this bog when you Google "Sodecia," this forum is right below their website. People need to know the working conditions are not safe there before they decide to take a job. It's the lowest waged people that have to worry. The people that keep that place running and work very hard for them.

You don't know what you're talking about. Cops talked to everyone. I agree with worker on Feb 23 -- it's a tragic accident. I heard people were questioned and took polygraphs. If everyone in the plant knows who did it, why hasn't anyone given the police that information? Family needs prayers, not stirring the pot.

I know exactly what I am talking about. The conditions there are unsafe. Who said everyone in the plant knows what happened? No one will move on until we know exactly happened.

If the conditions are unsafe OSHA would have closed them down. This forum is rediculious. The accident is one of the most painful things I've ever had to deal with. An absolute tragedy. Did someone restart the cell? Obviously. We're lock out proceedures followed? No they were not. Jim was a dear friend of mine and I honesty believe that if conditions were that bad he wouldn't have worked there. Him and the entire mustazza family will always be in my thoughts and prayers. It just goes to show that life itself is such a precious gift.

OSHA issued fines, which were reduced and the company paid them and work goes on as usual. Let's not forget that Governor Synder has cut funding to all government departments and I assume OSHA was not overlooked. They are probably working with less employees doing the same amount of work as are a lot of businesses in Michigan. We can't assume that OSHA would shut a company down.

Jim knew conditions were very bad. At the time of the accident he was looking for another job but it just didn't happen soon enough. He had no intention of staying at Sodecia.

We all fall back into old habits and I am willing to bet employees are taking shortcuts again to get the job done faster and keep the part numbers up so the bosses will be happy.

My prayers will always be there for the entire family. Since the accident there have been many changes. Slave driving management has been replaced. OSHA has issued fines. Safety changes have been implimented. Zero tolarance policy on lock out proceedures. To little to late? Absolutely. I have worked with Jim since his very first day at sodecia. And I can honestly say I believe Jim would approve with the changes that have been made. It just is very unfortiant that it a life to stop and realize what needed to be done. RIP my friend and I will see you on the other side.
