The link didn't work for me. This is terrible news. Let's hope it gets resolved ASAP.

tramtwo 10-29-2012 03:17 PM

Humm wonder what "sequence seats" means? Wonder how long the line can run before this affects it?

Lumino1LE 10-29-2012 05:21 PM

Crap! No wonder mine has not moved in a week. I was 3400 on 10/22; that's also my TPW, but nothing as of this morning. This is such a drag.

I have an HPDE scheduled for 11/17. Damn, damn.

CAW Local 222 Reaches Tentative Agreement With Lear Whitby

A tentative agreement has been reached between CAW Local 222 and Lear Corporation. The deal came late in the day on Monday, October 29, almost 48 hours after the workers at Lear Whitby went on strike.

A ratification meeting will be held this coming weekend. Details of the agreement will not be released until after ratification.

Negotiations began in early August, but were suspended on account of the contract talks with the Detroit Three. Talks between the CAW and Lear Whitby resumed in early October.

Fire them all and hire new workers not in the union.

Did you know without unions you wouldn't have an 8 hour work day and weekends? Just a fun fact for you.

I'm without a union, and I work 5 days a week at 8 hours a day...

Unions had their time - but it's come and gone.

On topic: It's sad to see that this kind of stuff can halt production down an entire assembly line, and not only affect their own jobs - but the jobs of people who are also held up because of this.

To bad your fact its in fact not true. I see another person has been feed the union line without looking up the facts for themselves. I would state the true fact but I wasn't to see were this conversation may go. I hope others might know the truth and post here.

AMEN!! There was a time and a place, but now they basically just serve against darwins theory of natural selection. If you need a job you'll show up to work on time all the time and give at least 80% while you are there. Not going on strike because you want a .10 cent raise. Every time I got a raise I earned it by working hard and sometimes harder than the next guy and I deserved it.

My wife was in a union, and every time they went out on strike the only one that came out on the deal was the union it's self. Whatever they got for the workers usually ened up being ate up with increased union dues... They are a ripoff to the worker now.

I'm not in a union now, but I was Union Carpenter for 5 years. I'm not saying it was perfect by any means. One thing I hated about it was during elections they would try to tell everyone who to vote for. I like to form my own opinions on candidates. From what I have read and not fed our ancestors formed unions for labor laws that helped bring you days off of work and scheduled work hours less than Sun up to Sun down. If I'm wrong show me some proof I will gladly read it and form an opinion. I will also state I was wrong. I have no problems with that.

I agree that people should have to work hard to keep your job and/or receive an increase in pay or a promotion. When I was a carpenter I saw a lot of guys get the boot because there production wasn't up to par. I'm not saying it's like that everywhere because it's not. I also was not talking about current times in my first statement.

I appreciate your comments and especially calm reply, to many people jump straight to being offended and flame on. Debate and conversation its what its all about and of course being respectful, which sometimes I need to remind myself.

I will give a hint though, "Henry Ford".

Thanks. I'm not offended by any means. I don't defend unions or bash them. I've worked Union jobs and non-union jobs. I'm currently working Non-Union as a Network Admin. I was just under the impression that's how weekends were formed. I'm actually trying to research this to get my facts straight.

This thread has gotten WAY too political. Glad my 1LE will have seats!! :D

Doglife1LE 10-30-2012 02:19 PM

So I found this article and read it. I still need to look further into this because he does not list his sources.
