Are any of these clueless Union brain wizards paying attention to our current economic situation under Obama? Well, worst case scenario, maybe they can picnic with the Crystal Sugar folks. They also have some "free" time on their hands. We breathe UNIONS!!!!!!!

"the units are amply profitable". If they were not would the teamsters take a pay cut? A level of profit sharing makes sense, but a higher wage, or more over-time simply because a business makes money is illogical.

SAME ADVICE HERE I GAVE over a year ago to Crystal Sugar Union folk....DO NOT LISTEN to the Union hacks, cross the line and get back to work as fast as you can. There are way too many hard working people out there that gladly repace you in a minute, including just about anyone here illegally. Do yourself a favor, go back to work and quit pulling DFL lever.

Republicans said their attacks on unions were only targeted at public sector unions. Their foot soldiers echoed that statement. Now their foot soldiers are attacking private sector unions. And when they destroy those, they'll turn their swords on YOU.

Any time your union boss says you should not settle, think to yourself, "What's in it for me?" A pay raise? A regular pay check? A job? or...An increase in what the union boss gets? An increase in the days/weekends/holidays off the union steward gets? Who benefits when you vote against a contract offer?..Just something to think about before throwing your job out the window!

I USUALLY go to Holiday for gas and coffee, but now I will go to SA for ALL gas as long as there is a lockout.

Private Equity firms are majority owners. So this shouldn't surprise anyone.

All you people who vote republican and hate unions... just wait until your company cuts your salary and see who is whining.. that is the republican way... slave labor...it is coming.. just vote for Mitt and your job is on the line... profits are what the company's are after.. not your welfare.. and the CEO's pay
