To insinuate that the reason for the closure is due to "union" is not true! The downsizing has been going on for years and I'm surprised they have lasted this long, the other commercial "custom build" plant union or not? has the same wage and benefits package.

Ignorant people said the same about Whirlpool which is totally untrue, fact is because the working relationship between the union and company the plant gained about 5 years of life, the plant was slated for closure in 2002 with Global Organization Plan that included the building of New plants in Mexico to compete with a global market and intense cost competition from foreign unfair companies like LG and Samsung, As a 35 year employee at Whirlpool with years of experience as a Labor Management Facilitator/Coordinator.

I've no idea since 2008 when my wife retired from Trane after 25 years, but at that time Trane and Aire Systems (the commercial plant) did not have same pay.

A lot has changed since 2008, when I say same I mean same ball park not exact.  It's called competitive wages and benefits to retain and compete for workers in the area with similar jobs.  All the manufacturing in Fort Smith do the same and have for many years.      Your I've no idea says it all..

That's the reason my earlier post said "since when". You need to take a chill pill.

You need to research more and not post non sense and false insinuations about a situation you have no fact based current information on. "Your I've no idea says it all"

Hey let's blame on the union or board of director's or all things Trump.

You are the one who keeps repeating the same thing, not me.
