They should just move the operation to Mexico, they would save a lot of money and then maybe you would all realize how good we did have it.

Best advice I ever got: earn a trade.

Trades guys I've talked to are pretty confident they can get another job or ride out the strike. Doubt many will come back, once bitten twice shy and all that.

You can't trust USS, they're run by a toxic core of middle management tyrants ruling their little fifedoms. Logic and reason do not apply. Think spoiled little princess.

Nope you can't trust em. On the other hand they can't afford to start another labour dispute. Lots of money being spent fixing the furnace. They don't want hold ups at the gate delaying the work. All the customers we are getting back will flee for good this time as well. USS has to be careful. Flexing too much muscle will cost them. They are already scaring away senior men who we need to teach the young guys for the future. I think this time the offer will be fair.....the contract after this one will be a nasty one. Just my opinion. I pray that we all get a fair deal. They don't realize how much of a cash cow LEW can be.

Let's be realists not optimists.Give the bargaining team the power they need to get a decent contract. We need a really strong strike mandate.

rumour has it that large ships filled with skilled electricians from china are racing toward LEW to fill in for the locked out LEW and if there is no lockout then the Royal Bank of Canada will hire the chinese workers as permanent workers at their banks after the soon to be fired RBC workers train the chinese electricians...cause why pay RBC long term employees 16.00 an hour when the chinese electricians will work for minimum wage or maybe just for food and lodging at the Royal Bank of Canada....JUST THINKIN ABOUT THINGS...and hey, what you think McDonalds and Wendys and u ...is thinking..........

Looks like our 15 weeks is on the table this is what we had worked for for the last 25 years
Don't let them ( Useless Steal) take that way that's about $35,000 at retirement!
There better be a $75,000 signing bonus if they think of taking that
Give the union there strike vote today!
Who out there got the text message from the union hall regarding Bill Fergason said to get all BOFC EMPLOYIES to vote???????
