If it was not for the union the people who work there would have nothing. I notice you never talk about management making more than they deserve. That is what the real problem is. You act like unions are the problem with everything. Not true by a long shot.

Mike....considering you don't even KNOW who I show stupidity by 'assuming' you know anything yourself. It's no surprise that liberals always shoot off their mouths before getting 'facts' first. You just proved my point.

I KNOW people who have retired from Corharts. And I don't care if you believe me or not. You don't make anyone believe you by acting immature, childish by telling others to shut up because you don't like what they say. Grow up. Your immaturity is showing. UNIONS have been cause of a lot of businesses shutting down all over the United States whether YOU want to see it or ignore it makes no difference to FACTS! Unions keep demanding more and more until companies CHOOSE to just shut it down. Wait a few months and then reopen without being forced to hire union workers. That is exactly what they've caused by their selfishness and GREED. The GREED is coming from the left liberals in this country. YOU can't have everything you get over it.

This is normal for this buisness. It has been that way for 30 years. You people know nothing about Corhart or the Union that keeps the doors open to the plant. The union has never been a problem with the buisness.Get your facts straight before running your mouth.

Unions caused Hostess to shut down. I've noticed a new owner has recently opened it back up after purchasing company and it's NOT Unionized. THIS is the 'result' of the Unions today which are NOT doing anything for the dues the workers are FORCED to pay. Unions today are nothing short of Mafia-thugs, stealing money from your paychecks and giving nothing back but disappointment and joblessness. Corharts will be same. They'll end up closing; reopening---NO UNIONS!

There are about 150 employees working at the Buckhannon facility, and the production employees are represented for collective bargaining purposes by the United Steelworkers of America, AFL-CIO-CLC and the local union No. 477.

Well start looking for another job; Unions have been the cause of thousands of businesses shutting down lately and there's no hope of these folks coming back to their jobs anytime soon. At least not until Obama and progressives are out of our lives next elections.

They say there's no guarantee when or if they will be called back. Uh, that's 'code' for it's going to be a very long wait. Hope they all find other jobs...but with the UNfocused laser-like focusing Obama keeps saying he is going to do with jobs/economy his REAL focus only lasts until his "hot-air speeches" end! Obama: poster child for ADHD. Gun control is NOT top priority dufus; ECONOMY and JOBS are!! TIme for another vacation. At least when he's vacationing he's not doing MORE damage to Am
