RU,
Do not break your arm patting yourself on the back. How could the union employees possibly increase the brand value? They are nothing but nut and bolt turners. If you want to point to someone that made them better, look to the college educated engineers that designed and set up the lines to produce the product. Any trained ape can put bolt "A" in hole "B". These union folks crack me up with their inflated sense of self worth. They can and have been replaced by very low paid people with no loss of production, what does that tell you? It tells me your "union" was as worthless as a fart in a windstorm.
no loss of production, maybe
loss of quality - absolutely
no one gives a damn about the product anymore and it will show on the bottom line sooner or later
but by then Wandell will be long gone, and those union guys might just be able to clean up the mess he'll leave behind

If you were the individual responsible for turning around a company as big as Harley, you would deserve the money. Being that you are a fry cook at McDonalds, you deserve nothing.
you are nuts he did nothing to turn that company around check with the sec and see how many bikes were built during this process all these profits are from Harley Davidson an American icon raping the American worker at the hands of Wandell and the rest of the board another great example of corporate greed and by the way his base salary is around 900,000 a year you can never justify to me a 5 million dollar bonus at the expense of other peoples lives being destroyed again ruin 3000 peoples lives that were full time employees and then hire temps use them up and spit them out again screwing the American worker American icon I think not

Mr Tierney, he didn't get a $200mil swing by giving union workers extra benefits and overtime. He did it by trimming the fat, getting rid of dead weight, breaking down the unions and making the manufacturing process more efficient. Do you know for a fact there weren't bonuses handed out? That raises weren't provided to those who proved their worth to the company? That temporarily layed off and furloughed employees weren't brought back? Maybe you were one of them, maybe you're a sore union employee who banked on the fact that you would be saved by big brother and you weren't. I dont know, but I know this, that man made that kindof money because he did his job and he saved a company, if you were in a position to do the same you would expect to be compensated for it just as he was.
you have no idea what your talking about check your facts before you open your mouth because it makes you look like an ass he did nothing to streamline production what he did do was cause quality issues by taking jobs and putting unqualified employees in them no one knows how to make their job more efficient than the people doing the job not only that there is more overtime than ever in the York facility yes I know for a fact there were no raises for the hourly people and there wont be for seven years with inflation rising about 4 percent a year that makes those employees 28 percent poorer by the end of that contract corporate greed and they do not care how many lives they destroy in the process
