I own 5 business in different locations. I want to experiment so I take the least performing store, as to where it doesn't necessary effect me the most. Plan A, I say we are going to take a percentage from each department according to the skill set. If this can save my company money and not effect the production or quality of the product that I'm selling then, its a success. It then becomes the model in which the whole company will operate under.

My plan B, If I for some reason cant perform the first plan I try a different approach. 2 tier system. To not stir the pot too much, I say this will only affect new hires and keep the old faithful happy. But at a certain time I can gradually eliminate their higher pay when the best desirable time for me is by 2 ways.

1) Layoffs, when call back rights run out, I say hey you know your a heck of a worker but your going to have to start from the beginning at this company. 2) When we are busy and layoffs aren't an option then I will bring in some new hires, seniority trains them then we have to cut ties with the higher pay.

Now the most successful way to put any of these polices in place is to tackle the most difficult company first. If I have a Union business then I know what ever I can implement there, the others will be a piece of cake. I mean what are they going to do?

You have to beaware of what's going on with our surroundings. To simply say we are different is being Naïve, and Naïve will not pay the bills when it happens!

First let me clarify that It was not a offer. It was not in writing it was just talk by the company for a 5 year freeze. But you are missing the point. 68 people would get screwed not that our negotiating team would even bother to bring it to the members. This is about getting a fair contract for all the union brothers. I will vote for nothing less. I don't believe in hurray for me to bad for you. I will not vote yes for a contract that that benefits me and hurts my union brothers laid off. That is not what the union is about. So to answer your question wage is not off the table.so your ok with people in Florence getting a pay cut as long as it is not you ? March 24th elks for any more information.

Like I said read about it. You aren't going to believe what I tell you. Find a source you trust and educate yourself on it. Ask some of the guys you work with about it that have been at a two tier company. Because you're at the top of the pay scale, doesn't make you safe. It actually makes you the target.

After the meeting with the Aurora guys, there could be a count. But it's not a head count. It's a show of hands, and nobody will be forced to rise there hand.

They already screwed us with the medical plan and the 2 tier pay levels. What will stop them from F##king us on everything else?

Nothing to think about.

The time has come to arm ourselves against the greedy Dr T and organize.

You guys need 97 people? Then wtf are we even still talking about? I just started laughbathroom reading o hard right now, water came out of my eyes when i read that number. I thought it was something more reasonable like 60. But 97? Most i see is 30! And it wont even be that much. Not even a third! C'mon.... Wake up to the fact you have FAILED! NINETY SEVEN?

I honestly didn't know about that. So this whole thing just went from stupid and funny bathroom reading, to really sad in my book. You guys are so far off, it really is pathetic that you still want to keep the farce up.
