    UAW-Vote Democrat 2020?

    Keep in mind, most of those California Democrats you're talking about are fellow UAW members, graduate students unionized by UAW. Because they have autoworkers best interest at heart. Think about it, the moment executive orders were set in place about gas emissions the UAW changed direction, knew autoworkers were no longer lucrative to bargain for and began unionizing nurses teachers graduate students anything they could legally unionize. It's not even about their political party because to get elected they will spew anything to get in office but once they're in true colors show and out comes the agendas they kept hidden during their campaigns. They smear each other one side lie to us from the other. Being an American is great we can make our own choices on who we vote for but not all have that type of common sense and will fall victim to the subliminal hate messages pounded into their heads by main stream media. Listen to the actual politician spew his own lies don't ever allow some gossip columnist pretending to be a political analyst interpret for you.

    I'm almost afraid what all will be fixed next week, not really but almost.

    I know this answer, you get elected in the UAW scam weasel and other naughty things to get to IUAW then you embrace those "gifts" off the record, and carelessly spend strike fund money on maybe a cabin by a lake or something.

    you're missing the point Fuzzy, we actually got a robo call from the Plant Manager (the infamous plant closer) about attendance during this launch. But those of us that do show up can't run because they run out of parts and get sent home, every week now since we've been back short work weeks for body dept.. To bitch at us about attendance and the need to get through this launch, and then not have enough parts to finish one 40 hr week. How many plants have you worked Fuzzy?? this be my 3rd and by far the worst ran plant, I really regret this transfer.

    the same genius that takes a thermometer holds it in front of the fan and says no it's not too hot for no cafeteria broken ice machines, but hey we got those bis ass fans that do nothing but float the asbestos from the pipes across the ceiling through the air. 900 million invested and couldn't fix a leaky roof????

    Chicago is known for it's rats, pretty sure they have a rat tax in the works. fear mongering? trying to be realistic here not sugar coat anything, in all seriousness we have issues at CAP apparently they'll be addressed next week. a.)Will this be the time they end C crew? b.) or worse will they finally put CAP to rest? c.)or will it be a pep talk to finish the launch without abusing FMLA? any bets? All signs point to A, B is also looking more and more possible. But the safe bet is C because of the last time they announced any type of lay offs the vandalism costed thousands if not millions.

    lol that's even worse, 27 years and you want to keep it as it is? I'm trying to escape the nightmare. last 15 years of concessions and you don't feel like the company owes for having their backs while the other 2 we're getting bailed out? maybe just a little bit? your statement explains my issue perfectly, CAP is too used to a certain way the union is run, politics and work ethics in general. It's hard as a transfer to get used to, I feel like most of my co workers just don't care enough to even try to be unionized company. With that type of morale at a big plant with a lot of workers you end up with the "eh I don't care vote just give me a bonus". Not that even half vote or even a fraction of a fraction show up for a meeting, just check next weeks attendance at the hall. And I get it, it's what you know it's what you're used to unfortunately their's not much solidarity and the company pretty much runs the union. And I don't blame you one bit for being ready to retire. I have too many family members invested in the UAW through out several locals and I'm hoping for the best all around not just myself. If it was just myself I'd say give me that early retirement and put CAP out of it's misery too. All in solidarity though. We are one....

    This mentality has us crippled at CAP happy campers with no time no pensions ready to sign anything with a bonus right now. PM robocalls (not in 24 years have I gotten a robocall from the PM) begging for us to show up. Chairman comes out now that we're all elected let's have a meeting about the bad news. 😨 well you get what you elect so.

    . Well CAP is about to realize their FMLA babies has earn us members a health insurance increase, those closing CAP rumors are more realistic then ever. And no one will miss it.

    LMFAO I got the funniest robocall from the PM, they're feeling the FMLA pain. No one wants to work in this heat with no cafeteria food trucks that don't show up no water no union reps and broken ice machines

    UAW-Vote Democrat 2020?

    Democrat lead House just wasted a whole day of tax payers money voting to condemn a tweet from social media, because of their priorities. Who's in their right mind?

    CAP is ruining it for other plants, a company ran plant with a phony union. So many workers with little representation so much abusing benefits causing the company to rethink those benefits. Safety issues during launch no safety rep available to address the safety issues, future law suit about to happen any minute as I type this especially if it starts to rain. The reps we send to bargain are the laughing stock of the union. 2 of them involved in law suits current and past but the company loves their yes men enough to put restrictions on harassment victims and after a minor "zero tolerance" punishment of a few days off the sexual predators are rewarded with jobs of their choice. I pretty sure that suit is still pending and not part of the big cry wolf suit last year. I vote to sacrifice CAP for the greater good, sell my pension take and the separation package let the millennials figure the rest out. Even surviving one plant closure early 2000's there was a future that was somewhat clear in the auto industry 20 yr ago. No one today can tell me there will be a Ford in 2025 without no doubts. They can barely see past 2020 right now. UAW with its nepotism has crippled the industry, rather then hiring skilled workers with good work ethics they get so and so's entitled children, relatives, etc. etc.. yeah it sounds negative, union bashing kinda bitchy but come on guys lets stop sugar coating it and allowing it to happen pretending we're lucky to have a jobs when it should be they're lucky to have members to unionize. If they don't come back with a lucrative contract for us members, then we're at fault for voting in and sending who we sent to bargain for our contracts. Nothing prevents us from reforming a new union except us.

    UAW-Vote Democrat 2020?

    That's what we have right now swinging back n forth left to right, we need progress and to move forward. Too much time spent on petty issues not enough on the important. Too much time spent opposing the other and not enough solutions.
