I wonder how those shrewd Union folks are enjoying their self imposed vacations.
Good thing our economy is doing so well or they might be worried.
Management gave themselves huge pay increses while the company was in crisis, and somehow this is the union"s fault?
Isn't this the same union that's involved with Crystal Sugar? As far as the huge pay increases go - the company lost $380+ million last year of which about 1% - 2% was due to increases in executive salaries. Since then, except for what's being paid to them to sell of the company, each of the senior executives got paid $1 per year. Because of their archaic and burdensome work rules the bakers' union was the chief cause of the demise of the company which destroyed not only their own jobs but those of members of other unions.
Why not ask all the unemployed former workers (18,500) how they feel about having just 3,500 vote on their fate.
I'd say that is a Union problem.
Collective bargaining? Fair?
Yep, a real democracy.
We need Wonder Bread. I was doing some plumbing this week end with a leaky valve and tried the old plumber's trick of stuffing bread into the pipe so I could solder on a new valve. However, since it wasn't Wonder bread it didn't create that tight gooey seal needed to stop the water from dripping. :)
