Ok I told you all about my day in court on Monday.Here's what happened when I went to work on Tuesday.It's 6:30 am and I'm sitting there reading the Detroit Free Press.I'm reading about the Chrysler workers voting NO on their new contract.I'm thinking to myself "are you guys nuts"?:eek: My boss says"Fred if we go out on strike will you come in and work?Huh:eek: I look around and everybody is looking at me.Ok whats going on?My boss says"Fred if we go out on strike will you come in and work"?:eek:Huh:eek: Now I 'm I am not liking this line of questioning.:confused: My boss says"well,will you?:confused: My boss says"your union says it's ok".Ha ha ha ha ha,yeh right.:confused: Now I am baffled:confused: "I have to go talk to the Plant Chairman,I'll be back":confused: So now I am talking to the Chairman and I said"my boss wants to know if I'll come in and work if we go on strike"?He said "will you"?Huh:eek: So after a lengthy discussion I find out that FoMoCo and the UAW have an agreement that if there is a strike they will work a select few people to maintain the HVAC and paint mix rooms till the strike is over.I said my concern would be crossing my own picket line.I don't want hard feelings or worse.:confused: I have never had a conversation like that in 28 years,huh:eek:

Sounds like a test Fred........ :confused: Understand your confusion. Can you ask to see that in writing from Plant Chairman, and have him share with rank and file..........?:eek: Been on both sides of a similar issue at VZ. Your instincts to be concerned are justified. Had the exact thing happen when a CWA member, before becoming mgt. Slightly different jobs, but same situation.

Don't blame the Unions or Businesses. Blame the Politicians; they are the one that allow products to be imported into our country, made in a manor that would not be legal or acceptable in our own country!! Both Republican and Democrats are responsible. When a product is made that does not meet our Labor (Child, Work Hour, Working Conditions), and Environmental laws; that product should be either banned or taxed to the point it makes up for the cost of meeting those laws.

Right On Mobey!

I am prohibited by federal law from striking (well at least until recently - but not in a meaningful way...)

Don't get me started - Fed Reserve bank, Congress, both political parties, IRS... I think I need a drink.

You guys are killing me. :D

The stadium is topless, the first lady is not. OK, so the first lady is topless sometimes, just not at the topless stadium. I have pics...of the stadium, not the first lady. Well, actually I do have pics of the first lady, just not topless. The stadium is topless in the pics though. Is everyone confused? I'm confused. :confused: :D :D :D
