You are making the exact opposite accusations that I'm making - neither of us work there and are going by word of mouth. Yet you think I'm being rude and unfair?? That's pretty open minded of you. As far as deaths at Waupaca, unfortunately, they're as regular as clock work. Hopefully the next victim won't be someone you love. The unionized facility I work at has been there 45 years, and it's a heavy industry with many hazards. In 45 years, there's never been a single employee die from a work related injury. Deaths aren't an imminent part of the job - they're the result of a management team that puts productivity over safety.
. 4/11/13 union electric Middleton Ohio worker electrocuted at steel mill.-- accidents happen to unions to . And I do pray for my husbands safety every day when he leaves and every day I thank God that he comes home.... I would do the same If he worked for ur unionized factory. I hope your wife prays for u too.

How many deaths at Waupaca in the past 10 years?? In most places - even heavy industry - deaths or debilitating injuries are somewhat rare. At Waupaca they are just shy of routine.

I found this page on accident bcz I was concerned with mr felty I thought for a second that it was an intelligent conversation. It's not. Moving on.

If you were truly concerned about Mr. Felty, and the "next" Mr. Felty, you'd quit defending a company with a culture of death and dismemberment and start looking for ways to make your husband's job safer.

I work there and I do not like my job at all. Deaths are pretty rare out there but this wasnt the first and I doubt it will be the last. Homegrl obviously doesn't realize that at least 80% of the guys working out in the plant can't stand their jobs. (80% is a very conservative estimate) And the people that run the place don't do a very good job of it either. Like I said, death is not a regular occurrence but there are quite a bit of injuries and the risk of getting hurt is always there. I wish we were a union. If we formed a union I probably wouldn't be looking for another job.

A good union, like the United Steelworkers, would not only ensure that workers were payed a fair wage and benefit level, but would also help improve the safety performance. Pray for the family of the lost, but also take steps to prevent the next tragedy. Unionization is the best first step.

Most people who talk bad about unions are people who have no experience with them and feed into the union busting companies provide. Not knowing how unions protect the workers and their families they fear for their job and cave into the fear. You have to pay dues but you make a better salary and way better benefits. Some people think that they're set because they do a job for $16/hr but don't realize they're doing the same job a union worker is doing,making more money,and building up a nest egg for their future.
Union says we are going on strike then you can't work. Nice to have other people decide if you get to work or Not. Do they pay your mortgage when they vote to strike? Ya I didn't think so...

Depends on where you work. Strike at Aleris and they will pay any bill you bring to them.

If you knew anything about a union you'd know they strike very rarely and only after a vote of the membership has decided it's necessary. Try commenting on a topic where you won't look so foolish.

Yes, the Steelworkers maintain a strong defense fund to help its members in the event a strike is necessary.

All those deaths were caused by people not follwing safety rules which were taught to them by Waupaca and not followed. Felty was not tied off after given training the day before about that.

my husband works there. Our children and I are well cared for bcz of waupaca. Thanks to waupaca I was able to b a stay home mom, able to raise my own children. Bc of waupaca I have insurance. Bcz of waupaca my family has not been effected like most families have bcz of the economy. All I'm saying is if u have a good paying job that keeps your children fed why complain about it. I'm sure some guy in the unemployment line would love to have your spot if u don't want it.

Maybe you should try interacting with actual human beings instead of living your life on topix all day and all night.
