    TLO pay

    I got sub pay for that week. It was deposited on 4-5-2020, I did NOT get the extra $ 600.

    Stay at home order

    So what is the plan for Good Friday and Easter Monday if we are still off? How will that work with unemployment if we are paid for the holidays? Will they end up giving us SWW and holiday pay or will we have to claim earnings to unemployment? I havent had to claim unemployment in 23 years so this is all new to me.

    Covid-19 testing

    I never said that our hospitals would NOT be overwhelmed. I just stated they would NOT turn the elderly away and let them die like they are doing in Italy. They will try their best to help EVERYONE and not just send them home to die !

    Covid-19 testing

    There is NO way you can compare what is happening in Italy with anything that MAY happen in the USA. Italy is 100 % socialized medicine. They have told the hospitals to turn away anyone over 70 years old and basically let them die. We have the best doctors and hospitals anywhere in the world. Can you imagine what would happen if any hospital in the USA turned away a patient because of their age? They would be under federal investigation and people would be sent to prison.

    Give me a break. Most of us wont even know we have it. Hell alot of people wont even get it. They are going way overboard with this crap.

    GM/ IUAW contract negotiations

    We need to do more for the lower tir workers. One day they will out number us Legacy workers and will remember how we screwed them by not sticking up for them. We should have NEVER passed the contract when we agreed to allow lower paid workers. Everyone should be paid the same...not have 3 or 4 different tirs of workers.

    Best Supporting Actor & Actress Goes Toooooo

    Do you really think any candidate Democrat or Republican really give a shit about any UAW member? They are like our union reps and plant committee. They only come around when they want your vote. The rest of the time they could care less.

    Where Is The IUAW?

    I honestly expect Hillary Clinton to throw her hat back in the ring once all of the Biden crap comes out. She sure has been in the news a lot the last few weeks.

    Ford workers told to expect tentative agreement soon

    Ford workers told to expect tentative agreement soon

    Millions of people? Exaggerate much Cecilmeyer ?
  11. Are you nuts ? Do you have any idea how much 15 % of your health coverage would cost you? Lets say Ford pays a family of 4 around $ 2000 per month for coverage. Thats $ 300 out of your pocket per month. I dont know about your situation but that extra $ 300 for a faimly is quite a chunk of change. Thats $ 3600 per year less. That could go along way for a family's expenses. Until upper management at Fords start to take some pay cuts. ( how many BILLIONS $$$$$$$$ profit did Ford make the last few years ?) I will vote NO every time.

    GM gets to set the pattern

    Any contract they try to sell us with ANY KIND of health insurance deductible or payroll deduction will be an Immediate NO from me. I can under stand Co-Pays for prescriptions and some office visits but how many BILLIONS of $$$$ did the company make the last 4 years? Also we need to get rid of the TPT employees or give them a path to full time....Like a time limit...TPT for 12 months then they HAVE to make you full time? I know people that have been TPT's for over 3.5 years and they keep hearing from the union...Just hold on a little longer to see how many people retire or if buy outs are given on THIS contract THEN you MAY get hired full time. Can anyone really believe ANYTHING coming out of IUAW? I agree...it will pass 51 % to 49 % with Local 600 passing it by 90 % to make up for the other plants saying NO.

    Election time at Local 228 Sterling plant.

    Heard a rumor today that the soon to be FORMER plant chairman and his cronies are planning on challenging the election results at local 228. Dont know what he plans to accomplish since he lost by a nice margin. Maybe he is trying to get to 100 of his buddies hired in before he HAS to step down.
