<quoted text>Back in the 70's when we got dental the older people would tell u that the dental was for your famiy since theres was grow up by than they would ask u to remember them and to give up a quarter an hour on each rise and have it go to the retirees. So when u retireed u would have a decent retireement and bennys and help them also
I was taught a little growing up, my Father and Grandfather (who was an organizer in the 40's) told me about the sacrifices they made. It's too bad that most that hired in in the 90's haven't been taught the history of the UAW (and unions in general).
As I stated before, thanks for the reminder. It brings back a lot of good memories. I think maybe the union should pass out a synops of the unions history with everyone's FIRST union dues payment. Maybe there would be less infighting.

JeepMaker you have NO IDEA what you are talkng about!!! WE DO NOT GET SUB PAY!!!!You can take your sub pay and shove it up your ass! Wait til you retire and can't aford to live on YOUR retrement! They have taken cost of living, dental, vision,upped everything about health care. This is just another slam to the retirees who built this company!
Guest just face it, you and your crony friends are Waingrow lapdogs. Your bunch have always gotten everything along the way, the best jobs, the most overtime, the union appointments. To say YOU were told that you were to have those paint jobs forever is a lie! We remember back in around 2006 when this was going down. They told you that the jobs were good till the end of the contract period! Now you greedy GOBs want to be held special while most of us are seeing our coworkers struggle at low tier 2 wages. Sell your Ottawa Hills homes and live within your means like the rest of us!

It's true when 3rd shift comes. We'll be at the bottom but will have a job. Not double dipping if we don't work for Chrysler.

Don,t blame us . it,s your union that created this mess.so if you want to bitch about , Bitch to them D. Hennaman and Troy Davis. The union came to us and offer the jobs,no one at Chrysler wanted them, so don,t get so comfy on your job, cause it might happen to you too. D.Hennaman settle for tier2.Sold us out,for tier2 worker.go bitch to him,and get your facts straight

Why don't you ask around who has had union experience and maybe there is someone who could bring a change and stand up for the people.

pointless in paint. People who know what they are talking about and have experience get shyt on by others and called not so nice things even if they were right all along. It's all a popularity contest.

What do the 30 year Jeep workers think of pampered paint double dippers getting a buyout and two years of unemployment? Did they get such an offer?
