    None of that here thank God. They had so many people go if they pulled something like that they would lose any chance of getting new people unless they went non union.

    I hear they have Law Firm in Detroit Area that specializes in pursueing York mechanics along the east coast. Some guys say UA defends them some say they do not. If you been gone for a while they maybe will leave you alone.

    In the end when these SOBs are telling me to stay home so they can make their numbers.........Well that just about says it all. I am a married man with two young children. I wake up and go to work every day because it is ingrained in me. I grew up on a dairy farm in PA in a time when it was not good to be a farmer.When i was 14 i was milking the neighbors cows in the morning before school,keeping my grades up,milking and feeding our cows after school,(because dad had to go outside the farm to put food on the table)via a swing shift job at the local textile factory. When I became a York mechanic it was a title that carried honor and integrity. This was a job that I could incorporate my life skills and work ethic.Because of their business strategy,I am PROUD to say i no longer work for jci given the fact I was told by the people in charge they do not owe any body a 40 hour week. I now work for the competition, and I love it.

    Becoming a York (or any other brand for that matter) mechanic did not give you honor and integrity...that is because of you...and you can carry that with you no matter where you go.

    You sound like Tom Cruise on " A Few Good Men".

    I can attest to the fact that you have to be careful who you use as role models if you want to keep the integrity that you have......

    Were you in Goodfellas ?
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !
    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !
