Is AWS coming to WTAP

They are asking people for three hours early and over plus open door policy for anyone wanting to work on their "days off". Just this week they have slowed or stopped the days off overtime as the numbers ( $$ ) aren't adding up.... we are bleeding cash at KTP..all of this is volunteer, they have scheduled forced OT several times since AWS took effect but have cancelled at the last minute due to part shortages..  (Aug 13, 2012 | post #30)

Is AWS coming to WTAP

I wish the best to you all.. Not sure how it will work for you but in Kokomo overtime has tripled and things arent looking that good. KTP lost 5 million dollars last month alone,first time in the history of the plant, we are alreay $337,000 in the hole for ths month. Under the old system we ran 2400 trannys a day. They need 2200 under aws.Due to part shortages we are lucky to 1700 a day yet the car plants are still drawing over 2400 a day from us. When AWS started in May we had over 90,000 62te trannys in a bank... we now have 29,900, at this rate are bank will be depleted by late Sept. early Oct.The problem lies that the production depts have no time to recoop with assembly depts running 6 days a week. If they have a breakdown,under the old system they could run 6 full shifts on the weekend to catch back up.... now under AWS they only have 2 shifts they can run.. I'm sure AWS looked good on paper,but it's not panning out in the real world. It's goona take someone to admit they made a mistake and we all know that's not gonna happen.. they'll ride this sinking ship clear to the bottom......  (Aug 10, 2012 | post #28)

Richie Borruf The Liar

Not really sure how to respond....Any time you sign your name to a document you ARE endorsing what the document pertains to.I sure hope you are not that naive....  (Jul 12, 2012 | post #128)

Richie Borruf The Liar

Ok...I was raised not to call anyone a liar unless you know the circumstances involved. Here's what I do know. 1. You stood in front of the membership and stated that the Kokomo Tribune where liars.. that you never or ever will support AWS and that you "scrambled " to get ahold of the Perspective to set the record straight.. 2. A few days later a letter was posted in each team break areas..SIGNED BY YOU..... The letter states and I quote... "The fact we have gotten this point is very positive for Chrysler Kokomo Employees and the Community. The need for this schedule was driven for the demands for and sales f Chrysler products in the market, and thus a associated dmand for the transmissions we make. This schedule will not only provide for roughly ann additional 45 days of which employees can be at home to persue personal intrests or family time..(joke right?), but also involves ess personal vehicle gsoline usage and decreased emissions. It further solidifies job security and increased employment leels and also raffirms Chrysles commitment aligned with new program announcements in Kokomo. This in turn enhances the economic growth withi Kokomo and further perpetuates Chrysler's strong community ties. Your ongoing SUPPORT and COMMITMENT is ackknowleged and APPRECIATED as we move foward. Not sure this is a lie but this is a huge contradiction at best.... Why would anyone sign their name to such a letter when they opppose AWS? I was always taught never sign anything you disagree with......BTW... Name: David Clem, Dept 6200 KTP... B crew  (Jul 11, 2012 | post #126)

Anti AWS Occupy Detoit March

thinking bout putting together an "anti AWS occupy detroit" at Chrysler Headquarters march together...what do you all think? Is there enough people out there willing to give up some limited time that Chrysler has left you to voice your opiniion on this matter? If so we need to act as soon as possible to get all the logistical and legal matters taken care of.... let me know  (May 14, 2012 | post #1)

Congrats to the UAW

excellent points! I'm neither Dem. or Rep. I stay independent and choose on what I feel is best for the country. I do know though it was the Obama's Auto Task Force that imposed the "no strike" clause apon us.. It was the Clinton administration that signed NAFTA into effect. My big beef is with the International. They stood before our local on a Wednesday and pleaded "brothers and Sisters, if we do not take the concessions layed before us Chrysler will file bankrupty and be liquidated.. the final vote tally came in about 7pm that night....the very next morning about 8am Chrysler filed for bankrupty anyways..It might sound sinical...but to me that looks like someone is sleeping in someone elses bed.......  (Apr 30, 2012 | post #12)

Congrats to the UAW

Congratulations to the UAW In light of the new AWS schedule that is being implemented at the local Chrysler plants, it sparked a desire for me to do some research. In 1836, Boston shipyard carpenters achieved an 8 hour work day. On May 1, 1886 the Knights of Labor, 80,000 people strong, marched in Chicago in support of an 8 hour work day. On January 5, 1914, the Ford Motor Company took the radical step of doubling pay to $5 a day and cut shifts from nine hours to eight, moves that were not popular with rival companies, although seeing the increase in Ford's productivity, and a significant increase in profit margin (from $30 million to $60 million in two years), most soon followed suit. The primary goal of any company, no matter what they produce is to make money, plain and simple. Their goal is to achieve the highest profit with the least amount of cost to achieve it, period. The goal of any union is to represent their union dues paying members and protect their rights. Chrysler has succeeded in doing their job, the UAW has failed miserably. Chrysler UAW’s head General Holyfield states he will not go before the executive committee about AWS because it insures the UAW approximately 2000 new union dues being paid per month. Since when do we put the prospect of future union dues above and beyond the desires of the current membership? We are told on a local level, that Chrysler will not guarantee future work for our local plants if we do not accept the terms of AWS. When has anyone, anywhere, in any profession been “guaranteed” future work? Chrysler played this same tactic with the plant in New Castle. The New Castle membership complied with Chrysler’s demands only to have their plant sold and closed just months afterwards. The old saying that you got to stand for something or you will fall for anything applies here. The same day that a newspaper article quoting our local president as saying nothing was settled about AWS, posters were placed inside the plant stating it would be implemented on May 7th. Is this how a “represented” membership should be treated? It makes one wonder, is it worth the cost of not seeing your kids grow up to receive what the UAW states is a decent paying wage? Does it bother any other member that the UAW constitution protects upper officials from being removed from office? It takes almost an act of God to remove them from office. In closing, I would like to congratulate the UAW leadership for setting the American auto worker back 98 years all for the greed of future revenue. You must be so proud. Now it’s time to get that resume ready.  (Apr 29, 2012 | post #1)
