Impasse means stalemate. Which means no f*cking offer. Maybe due to ferg's refusal to look at it. But there will be no offer. I'm so glad our negotiating committee will be able to make an appearance at the convention in Vancouver. If these rumours are true I will be thoroughly disgusted!

Exactly. The fact that we have no idea what our union is doing and can never get a straight answer or hold of anyone is beyond a joke. You had one job, negotiating committee.

Who cares and when there is no one left to run the place because everyone has moved on with there lives the whites will get a big thank you along with there walking papers for helping ussteal achieve the closure of stelco for good.feel proud now whites trying to cause chaos but when you get you reality check and one day you will, you will realize the only thing you were apart of was a corporate take over to squash the competition.so when it's your turn to leave the gate be sure to hand in your yankey flags over on your way out

Us says work till Sunday. Union says let's not work. Of course we should get paid more. Bushing a broom, sleeping and hitting a button is worth 30+ an Hour. Minus bushing the broom. Keep fighting for your over paid under educated jobs. On your days off check the job bank and maybe you'll think twice about a strike.

Went to my foremans office and started to ask him a question but he got called on the radio and left right away.
Look at his computer and Internet explorer was minimized, when I opened it, it was on this site :)

I'm pretty sure alot of these negative comments are their for a reason. Don't even respond back!

If you want to talk, talk to the guy holding the broom next to you, and stay positive for fuck sakes. If the company wanted us out then we would have been out already.

We will give our final offer and if the company doesn't like it than I will encourage everyone and their family members to to contact the government and the news and say "look what the conservative government is allowing, a US company to give US employees raises but cuts to the Canadains!" Make the government look just as bad as they did with the RBC! Let everyone know that this isn't about higher wages, it's about being treated fairly. And Canadian shouldn't have to take cuts to pay for American wage increases!

Don't be so f'in na´ve.. you're only there until the blast furnace work is finished, then rest assured the gates will be locked...

If 8782 had any balls, you would all walk out NOW, not giving them any chance to finish their blast furnace work

Not so sure it would do a damn thing but Great idea!
The deal they swept under the rug with Harper must be exposed!

Just heard there are still 3 issues fergie does not like. He would not say which ones, but i believe they are vacations, cola and benefits. Benefits we won't win, the US have it and so does our white hats, we will have to take it, hopefully fergie can get the $300 dropped or lowered. The vacations hopefully we can keep the sixth week but I doubt it so we will be down to five weeks, maybe try and see if we can bank a week of OT for a extra week. The COLA will be gone as we actually slipped that in last contract and they don't like it. Hopefully get a little raise in exchange but if not we still make good money. We all need to look at this ask myself. Is paying a little for your health worth going on the street for a year worth it, you will lose a years wages, house car etc over $600. Times are changing and the days of getting everything are over, just look at recent contracts with other companies.

As far as retires being at the meeting, they shouldn't be, you retired and therefore have no say in the new contract, I will vote for what is in the best interest of me and going forward, I have a house and family to pay for. Will you be there on the picket line with me or help me buy groceries, i don't think so.
