This is to all steelworkers. I don't blame you a bit not accepting the contract. Fight for your insurance you know once you lose it you will never get it back. But if you strike, do your thing make your jack rocks etc. but keep the stuff off public roads us people that aren't involved don't need the headaches. Keep it at the plant. You can read a lot of the negative comments about the steel workers the public hasn't forgot the trash they went through back in '90.

They won't strike for long they can't get unemployment. There will be scabs by the thousands. The company knows this.

You cannot train enough people fast enough before they loose their business. People will buy elsewhere & walk away from Ravenswood products! Watch & see!!!

Boeing, Airbus & more can buy elsewhere! Kiss your millions invested goodbye!

NO one wants to buy metal made by scabs! It won't happen!

Half the people who work there now were scabs at one time. Business as usual. Surely they smart enough not to strike.

That plant is poison.
There are too many labor problems for it to ever open again. The weak business plan proposed to PSC shows that without government welfare to the plant and the union, the thing will fail.
Let it go.

Per hourly employee:$23k net profit gain over a 5 year period,$7k bonus for voting in the contract, no insurance cost adjustment until 2015, and an adjusted pay percentage to 90/10 for insurance...yeah I would turn it down too-NOT!!! You people are pathetic. Throwing away one of the easiest, best paying jobs around because of foolish, false pride. Strike away fools, let me know how that soup line and assisted living works for ya.

I truly hope after this go around, the 'SCABS'(people wanting to work and earning their place) will not join the union and the plant will run on a right to work basis. Ravenswood has never completely recovered from the strike in the 90's and I put all the blame on the Union.

Remember people it's all about how you react to the hand your are dealt. Make Ravenswood a place to be proud to live in and come from again.

$1,000 for medical premiums does not equal $23,000 net profit. Your numbers jive with Kyle's. Obviously both of you distort the truth!

Kyle Lorentzen said in the Charleston Gazette the Union was not being asked to give anything up! That is not true!

I am not talking about what Kyle Lorentzen said, or what any other news/media personality has reported prior to today. I am typing what I just read this morning in the Constellium news letter, simple as that.
