Can't you guys figure it out? They are banking crap up for shut down. Why would you run lines when industry wide plants are reducing schedules and or shutting down for weeks at a time. What the heck is going to change in March? Nothing is going to magically happen except for one or two of the big three to suck air. Quit drinking the Magna coolaid look at what is going on out there.

Hector tells me your pension is going to dry up in 3 years. The mexican govornment has offered both GM Chrysler & other auto parts plants including Magna and johnson controls hundreds of thousands of dallors to relocate thier plants in Mexico.
Hector's people are not happy with this because it may bring tons of jobs to mexico but the gov't is the one who profits from this. The jobs pay nothing and people would rather sneak accross the boarder to find work than work in the gov't slave free trade markets.
Magna has told the mexican gov't that they will except there offer and move all of its work except its engineers jobs to mexico. In two years or less magna will be out of the north american markets forever.
I'll keep you posted, I meet with Hector again next week.

That sounds like them alright. Lets not forget about the plant they built in MUNCIE with the tax payers money and how they where going to put 400 new jobs in that plant. Nothing ever happened with that. Its was a dog and pony show from what I see. More empty promises. Magna hasn't kept a promise or kept there word at our plant or anything else when it comes to bringing in new work. They haven't fixed or bought any new machines for that matter either. They are penny wise and dallor stupid. I'd even go as far to say they will close this plant next within the next four years. Someone else tell me I'm wrong or show me that its not true.Ironically we have a Magna engineer that came from that plant. Do you want to know why it is being shut down. It made between 2 and 4 million a year profit but it wasn't profitable enough to justify keeping it open. This should give you an idea of what type of company Magna really is (like we don't know already)

New Process Gear Inc. on Tuesday placed 216 workers on indefinite layoff beginning next week, as the automotive parts plant cuts production to match customers' schedules.

From my sources after first of year they will be down to our wages and then Magna plans on combining several plants into Syracuse. For all you have short memory that is the reason this plant was built was to wipsaw Syracuse.

LOL ... OMG you know nothing about me. If I depended on my Magna bucks and gift cards to enhance my life I would be destitute just like you. I certainly appreciate an employer who actually cares about me and gets rid of trash like you.

You keep saying you are going to go away yet you keep coming back.

TS Tech actually isn't bad, except having to bow to the Japs, and the hours being cut already. I'll
be OK though, as soon as We get over this little bit of a dry spell ahead. We should still be able to sell Hondas at least.
