when will our union learn we have no power against them, we are only a small piece of the puzzle, we will get what we get or we will be out again until they need us which will be another 8 months.

They hopefully are already aware we have no advantage after what we went through last time. Hopefully it will at least be a stand pat contract. We all know they will never give us a raise or any other perks. What we get now is fine with me.

Thats why your a lew slave, grow some balls, to accept a stand pat contract is going backwards.
I don't see the utilities companies, oil companies,or anyone come to that who will say, we
are going to keep our prices the same for the next X amount of years.
Just occured to me, perhaps your one of those white hat scum suckers or a wantaby.

Balls or not. If you think you can get more out of USS you are dreaming. We have no bargaining power at all. It will end up the same as last time if we go for more. idle the place and produce everything in the states until we are ready to say yes. We will be lucky to get a stand pat agreement.

The high dollar and weak economy isn't going to help us either.

This is your chance to win back losses from the lockout, US steel American workers gained recently. Autoworkers gained back concessions lost from recession. There is an auto parts shortage, companies like USS cannot keep up with demand. If you do get locked out, I can't see them shutting down cold rolling and coating in Hamilton (too much at stake).
When times are good you gain, when times are bad you lose. Do a little reading.

I wish I was that optimistic. US steelworkers also got a raise and bigger bonus back in 2008 and we still got locked out. USS thinks we are overpaid as it is so I doubt we will get any wage increases. We will see though. They are the ones with the bargaining power so its up to them what they are going to do. I personally would be happy with what we have now. I did hear rumors about about Toyota wanting us to sty open so they can get steel from here for the long term. I'll believe when i see it but if its true thats a bit of incentive for the union and company to work something out.

Here we go with the head games started by u s steal. Lets NEVER forget this company's decision makers only care about americans and american jobs. They won't even give us the u s offer in case we take it and they can't lock us out again.

I hear this time and time again. Why does 8782 even have a hall when 75% of the time there isn't someone in the upper ranks of the local there to speak to.

I'll stick with the guys we have now, They have the balls to look US Steel in the eye and make demands of them. At the moment the lake is a pure profit machine and the orders are not transferable as US Steel assumed in the last negotiations.
