Ford is cutting costs as much as they possibly can

Prepare the lube.

Helpful tip: relax, it makes it easier

We have to help pay for all these facility improvements at  CAP, KTP, LAP and MAP... in the last 20 years. ANNNND we have to help the Glass House build a new and improved Detroit Train Station. Soooo no raises for you UAW peoples and maybe we should be thankful we have a J-O-B`s... ;)   

 

Had my lower GI looky looky and I asked the Nurse for a to go bag for the extra lube, first she looked a little puzzled but then said oh yeah your UAW, sure thing and put in extra tubes in my to go bag... :clapping:

Well.... a preview of things to come... 

 

The United Steelworkers and ArcelorMittal kicked off contract negotiations in Pittsburgh, and the union said the steelmaker is seeking major concessions that would affect thousands of workers across Northwest Indiana as it continues to lose market share to mini-mills.

The union said the Luxembourg-based steelmaker wants cuts to incentive pay, vacation pay, family and medical leave, funding for the Institute for Career Development and health insurance, as well as to make changes to sickness and accident, severance, supplemental unemployment policies. ArcelorMittal proposed doubling monthly health care contributions for retirees, eliminating the $10,000 pension equity plan for former ISG employees, and forcing employees to pay $200 a month premiums for a lesser Preferred Provider Organization health care plan or to switch to a "consumer-driven" health care plan with $8,000 a year in out-of-pocket costs.

Talks to be watching close. Because you know the Big 2.5 will be also...

 

As the expiration of the current contracts on Sept. 1 nears, the United Steelworkers union remains at odds with ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel.

Both steelmakers have been demanding concessions at a time when steel profits are soaring and steelworkers want a share after going three to six years without any pay raises. (3 to 6 years without any pay raises...? hell we went 14 years)

ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel together pulled in more than $2.1 billion in profit in the second quarter. Section 232 tariffs of 25 percent on all foreign steel have propelled domestic steel prices to around $900 a ton. ArcelorMittal USA reported turning its first profit since 2016 last quarter.
 
The union said in an update to members that it has made some progress on local issues with U.S. Steel but said the company was "dragging their feet on counter proposals and economics."
 
"Awful proposal today from USS," the United Steelworkers union said in an update to members. "Strips benefits. Increases co-pays. Minimal wage increases. Promises of bonus completely under management control."
