when you look at it this way dude....lets just say for argument the money you were making on the union job was 15-18 hr....+/-...
the companys in trouble...they ask for a pay cut
reasonably speaking - there couldve been a global meetup to discuss....ALL employees - to include mgmt - to take said cut and....look for other areas to meet some of that cost, such as perhaps finding a cheaper HC policy -
even - trying a 35 hour work week
hiring PT'ers in lieu of FT'ers sometimes isnt what you want to hear but the savings keeps the business in productions bc of the cost factor.
there WERE options.
the teamsters union is memory serves, was cooperative in reaching an agreement. the bakers union remained steadfast in - im saying it....extortion.
they pulled the same fuckin shit on long island 30 yrs ago
*i think it was at entenmenns bakery in bayshore. (??)
