In regards to AK Steel's Lockout this past year. Many people do not know that AK Steel had (Until August of 2006) a joint ventured plant with ISG-Mittal Steel here in Cleveland.

Not one of those workers walked off the job to support their fellow union brothers or sisters. When their plant closed in March of 2006, they took jobs of the former LTV Steel Workers who had a right to their incumbency at the old LTV Steel East Cleveland Works.

The workers from the AK/ISG Steel Coating Company AKA: LSE LIne workers are the biggest scabs in the industry!!!!!!

We only did what your International union told us to do. We did not take anyone's job! If you do not like what happen you should drop Dave Mcall a line.

from what we were told, the only LTV employee's that didnt come back either...

1)quit outright and refused a job offer to return to work
2)retired
or ..
3) failed drug testing for reemployment.

i honestly used to belive that LTV's management was to blame for the company's problems, but after seeing some of the union employee's in action (former and present) i can see how they are also to blame.
