Teamsters did not lose the employees lost. And so did Wp by keeping the union out they have succeeded in keeping wages and benefits low not to mention retaining the ability to treat you like carp. This will set the mode for all the other employers in wp. Sends the message that people here are mostly backwards uneducated hicks that are not smart enough to vote themselves a raise, better benefits and dignity.

Watch and see heads will roll now that there is nothing to stop the company from retaliation. They will purge anyone who had any role or influence on employees both pro or con. The company knows they can not try again for a year and in that time frame they must get rid of the leadership. I hope the workers will farewell but not much hope. But it is as I predicted at the beginning of this tread. Well good luck with all that glad I don't work there.

I'm questioning whether you've "ever" worked "anywhere". You are on here imparting your ignorance more than grave digger himself. Are you related by any chance?

Well pup its good that you question stuff but instead of lower yourself by making personal attacks why not state your reason/s why you think I do not know anything? Its because you dont. But since you seem to be inquisitive test yourself and me. I purpose that you look at how many gains the employees make in the next year both monetary and just basic dignaty in the work place. I suspect though that you are well aware of this and are probably some game playing manager playing dumb.

The union that you was in before and you said that it was worth it, take a minute and think about what made it worth it. Was it because the company was good to its employeers? Or was it because the union had a say in pay and benefits working conditions? The ansewer is simple if the company was really that good to its employees then how did the union come to be there? Truth is that the minute the company goes union they are locked into a contact and they have to uphold there end this is what keep them in line and makes there supervisors toe the line with the way they treat the workers. I feel bad for the armstrong workers and somewhere there is a group of there big shot ceo's and managers toasting to there victory and making fun of the workers for not doing the most simplest thing that could have made there work better. Its sad that the company will make big profits and still take as much as they can from the workers.

I am happy and I am toasting the fall of the union as are the other higher ups! We are now on a seek and destroy mission. We know who you are. You will rue the day that you tried to limit our power. Tick tock...tick tock...tick tock...

Nice but in the long run it will still cost you in overturn training general disgrunted low performing attitude sabotage etc.. You'll never get me caught up in working there to far below my grade until it unionizes. Well good luck with all that.
