They are "suppose" to be buying us here in Evart. We are not excited about this, as we lost alot in a 5 year contract that we ended up with, with them.

Ok, we recieved a shipment that said "Collins & Aikman/Flex-N-Gate" yet they are only buying "machinery". As far as I know, C&A has never actually "owned" any machinery, it's either leased from another company or (in our case) Chrysler owns it. Now, if our plant was awarded a contract, according to the successor clause, they have to offer us employment, regardless of where they are moving. Of course corporate says NO, it's only the machines they're (FNG) buying. LOL all but 2 ppl in the front office HAVE jobs with FNG.
They (mgmt) are telling us NOTHING!!! They are outright LYING to us, which of course we expect. We aren't getting answers from anyone. Like everyone else in the same boat, I just wish, FOR ONCE, someone would grow some you know whats and step up and say something, mgmt or union!! I mean dang, they're playing with our lives (I know, you all know this, Sorry for venting.)

Anyone that knows anything about contracts?? will any of this stand up if we fight?
Thanks

FLEX-N-GATE... They along with the MANAGEMENT people of individual plants are sooooooo in BED TOGETHER!! Doing deals where they can just bring back whomever...

Watch out any C&A plants that got bought by the spiders and snakes that run/own flex-n-gate....

They are doing business under the table, bypassing contracts, etc. to make sure they can stack the decks with whatever and whomever they choose... if you ever made anyone angry where you work... you won't get hired back, they are going to bring back all the YES-MEN and butt kissers... work ethic, attendance, ability IS NOT GOING TO MATTER.
