    Be interested how this plays out, the franchises were extremely high on parts. We would buy from corporate at a hell of a discount was the only way to be competitive with your own customer.
    Honeywell you can buy better but you cant pay more

    I told my wife when i die to sell my fishing stuff for what its worth not what i told her i paid for it

    We still have one private branch here. What I’ve been told is when the owner retires the company will be combined into the Baltimore Trane branch.
    Which I’m confused about as the Baltimore guys are union, the local Trane branch is not.

    Do not anticipate any Branch to go Union. Historically, becoming Union was voted by the workers. Just like Baltimore Trane was.

    It was told to me by one of their employees. I don’t work there. Only reason I go there is that’s the main parts house for Trane commercial equipment around here.

    I believe that the entire Pennsylvania/Maryland Trane District is Union. Can anyone verify this?

    As far as I know it is not. Had a friend who worked for Trane and he was definitely not union. That was the service department.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
