does it bring any money in for the town folk or just for hotel owners.

The hotel fuels the economy for the whole county, mostly Lewisburg, which in turns fuels the State's economy which is why Manchin urges both sides to resolve.

As for D Hedrick's comment about the lazy ass Union.....My husband is part of that Union and many of my friends and they work their tail off. However, as always, there is always a few lazy ones that ruin it for the rest. Don't label all of the Union employees as lazy, because that is incorrect.

We need the Greenbrier, whether you want to admit or not!

The union reps that are representing the employees of the hotel is a joke. They are the reason why the employees are in fear of loosing there jobs. You donít wait as long as they did to try to strike. If the union didnít like what the Greenbrier was offering from the beginning then they should have striked while the house count was up. Now the Greenbrier is going to ride them out. What do they have to loose. Remember they are CSX. The Greenbrier is not where they make their money.

I agree what you say Bearcat! The Union didn't even get to vote on the no walk out, no strike agreement. They found out, like the rest of us did.

I feel the Union Reps are sweating not for the Union employees but because they know they are loosing their easy ride! No trips to Alaska for fishing for the Bostics this year! Boo Whooo!

If our governor actually cared, he would be alarmed about the health benefit package the hotel proposed. He knows what the deal is and I bet (there I go with the gambling...LOL) he wouldn't want to work without affordable health care. Most employees are happy with wages but I dont think anyone could actually afford the insurance proposal. I agree with D Hedrick about getting rid of dead ass employees, but that could be taken care of by the union not protecting the lazy and only investigating unfair practices . We have a lot of great dedicated employees who are feel blessed to get paid for what we do and yet there are other who would complain thier ice cream is too cold.
