    UNIONS?!?!!?!?!?!?!!!

    DID YOU SAY UNIONS!?!?!?!


    I may have continued locating if we had a good union and better benefits...

    I already had to call the wonderful newly formed company about how they conveniently turned my 100% vested 401k company match rollover into NOT VESTED thanks to the riff raff running the AUL show trying to short change employees right out of the gate...


    GO ahead keep your heads in the sand!!!

    Im gone... And the health insurance sucks to ...

    600 a yr then 80% / 20%

    no more 15$ copay without a yearly deductible...

    Just keep hanging around to see whats next...

    The writing is on the wall...

    ITS to late Yahoo it started!!!!

    That 10.5% means their Locators will get about 45 cent raises every year. They will now top out at about $16.50 per hour in 3 years.

    Verizon is giving up the locating In Fl.and in Il. I'm topped out at $15.26 per hour. They aren't talking to us about who is taking it over. Or try'n to bring inside the other side of the house. We are the step children. But with out us they too would be very busy.

    News Flash! Verizon just notified their Locators Friday that March 28th would be their last day to locate here in Texas. They have not been told what contractor is taking over and I have not been able to determine who it is. If anyone else hears, please let me know.(meanwhile I'm praying it isn't USIC)
