    we who worked for TRW got the royal shaft from union an management. we were told this is what you will get no more no less. no negotiations , no vote! while most plants being effected were offered buyouts we were not. some had 20years or more less tan 5000.00 less than 5 years 2000.00 later getting maybe 1200.00 after taxes. just slapped inthe face. offered trainning if you gualified. All I can say is THANKS UAW AN TRW for all your support .

    If u worked ther u’d know the whole story, if not don’t assume. You know what happens when u assume… TRW offered the weekend workforce and some took them up on it. We never got a chance to discuss concessions, the company never brought to light what they wanted and we never got a chance to find out…As far as cheap labor “u get what u pay for” (china). I worked with many quality conciencious people, myself being one of them. I didnt want ot loose my job!!! Our own union even sold us out, so both parties are to blame. Thanks to Our Union Presidents. present and past. I’d love to name all the name’s but one was City Council President John Booth. And u see how much he helped us…

    Classy, Alumni… all that’s here is just a small statement saying TRW is closing. It has the who, what where and when eloquently put into twelve words, but the main thing that is missing is the why… I guess the automotive industry is not doing so well? I feel badly for all of the families affected by the closing. My thoughts and prayers are with them!

    While the city looks to entise new business in the former packaging plant north end of town, another one from the south end skipped town.

    I don’t suppose the increased electrical rates have a positive effect for new manufactoring jobs here; do they?


    Yes sir-ee—–change, hope, jobs, yes we can, yes we did !!!! LOL
