    Pros

    No layoffs, decent pay, union . People are pleasant. Many opportunities for better jobs. Hire supervisors from the floor so you may advance in the workplace.

    New older employees do not have the opportunity to bid on better jobs. No one that hires in now will have the opportunity to make the money the senior employees make due to union contract changes,

    Go back and make the contract right. a warehouseman can only make $13.25 an hour no matter how long they have been there under the current contract.
