Wishing all the workers at Tenaris well. I hope this is something you can live with.

Good luck to all of the people voting for a new contract with Tenaris. Please ensure that you understand that IF that little toad HUDAK gets voted in as the next Premiere, your new contract will be of NO use to you what so ever because he has already publicly announced that he WILL be gutting union contracts if he believes they are giving the employees too much - << not an exact quote << .

As always, your views may differ :)

Hudak is not interested in private companies that are represented by a union!! This is the second time you have made this asinine remark. He is trying to limit the power/money grabbing PUBLIC SERVICE UNIONS! Please educate yourself just a little ..there's a very big difference

Hudak and his Conservative where all for "right to work " legislation up until February so don't pretend he isn't interested in gutting all union contracts and eliminating long established workers pay and benefits gained by unions in Ontario.

Hoping the Tube Mill workers can live with this contract.

Local Saulites should know that seldom will the bargaining unit control it's own negotiations.

The International Representative will step in and shove things down the unions throat on advice from Pittsburgh where the USWA is located.

Last year between the USWA and Dave Orazietti backed by his Liberal banKsters..... the Sault's largest USWA local had to eat a crap-burger called a contract that had nothing and actually under funds their pension plan.

Good Luck Tubers

I am truly sorry that my former posts have seemed to upset you so much but the truth is the truth ... that little toad HUDAK has already PUBLICLY promised that he would ' gut ' ALL union contracts ( meaning both public and private sectors ) so my remarks are NOT asinine my friend ! I do not remember the exact quote that little toad made nor do I remember when it was made but I do know it was made publicly !! I think maybe YOU should take your own advice and educate yourself just a little.

I sincerely hope I did not upset you even further :(

As always, your views may differ :)
