Still a NO vote for me.We have gave up way to much.Sign bonus is expected and profit sharing like it used to be is fine(really got us last time on it)

Ford had better give us a raise and a few other things back after all they gave all the none union workers there things back.

I don't know where you get your information, but from what has been leaked the UAW got product for their plants (job security), an increase in Entry Level wage, a signing bonus and profit sharing based on North American profits so far. The job security is a lot more than "just a little bit". I would guess all our brothers and sisters at plants that need work would be happy to get product.

Do you really believe that that the IUAW has the ability to force the company to make a product in the U.S.? That is laughable....the company agrees to work here because it planned on doing it prior and can pull the plug on it anytime it wants. 78% for Ford Motor Companys day to day operations are out of the US...get real. The company agrees to put work where it wants work and the UAW makes everyone think it has done something.

You are so blind about job security I am actually shocked we have coworkers like you that discredit the proactive IUAW in securing product (JOB SECURITY FOR US). Even through the economic rule of the Bush administration the IUAW insured these commitments

All wins for us for sure, however you left out the part that says

The parties relaize that Ford's ability to maintain its manufacturing presence in the US with the commitment of future investment predicated on market demand to support volume, favorable buisness cases (including factors such as local government incentives, ect.) profitable vehicles, and stable market segments.

 

From page 5U , so again while the UAW won some great inventment commitments we still need to be thankful the design team actually put out vehicles the public actually wanted to buy this past contract. If they had not none of those commitments would have ment jack shit.

 

Again I am not knocking what was won in 2007 so please do not misunderstand my intentions of why I wrote that. The one thing i will knock is the flex body shops, that alone costs 200+ UAW jobs in itself per assembly plant that has had their 2007 commitments honored.

Then we can both agree that the 2007 product commitments occurred under the worst economic conditions ever (Bush 2008) yet still gained 98% of those investments, was a huge success.

 

Can we also agree that it is the highest priority to again get product commitments in writing so we may enjoy job security for all 40,000 of us?

That really should go without having to say it, can you drive a vehicle without wheels ?

 

But just to make you happy Grim, without product commitments there is no use for us. Therefore product commitments are a number one priority.

 

Happy now ?

 

Now can you admit product commitments do not mean shit if we are not building products people want to buy ?

AAI is down to one shift. Many here are worried. You can bet every one of us believe these product commitments are a top priority. Not only top priority but the only priority. Not to be selfish but I hope AAI is on the top of the Ford agreement list of products
