Here we go...

At 3AM they say they have an agreement. The preliminary things I'm seeing look like GM got most everything they wanted...I'm almost afraid to speculate on exactly what at this point, hoping parts of what I'm reading are guesses instead of fact!

But as it stands, I'll be back to work this evening, for which I'm grateful! From there, we'll see what the "highlights" of the agreement are, which are what they give us to vote on.

Thank you all for the kind words and well wishes through this; they have meant more than you could ever know! My heart has been in my throat for most of these last few days, and the emotional swings have been extreme. You all have been very kind, and I appreciate it so very very much!

I hope they were fair.

I heaved a big sigh of relief when I heard about the settlement this morning. I too hope the agreement is fair and that the union didn't have to make too many concessions.

I've been thinking of you in all this. I knew you'd be out there fighting, I knew it. I hope you get everything you deserve, too, and that you are treated fairly. *hug*

Alan, let me know the real deal on the agreement. I trust NOTHING I read in the MSM about it, so let me know if it's GOOD for the workers or yet another slap in your face.

I'm VERY pro-union. Always have been, always will be.

Best wishes.

:)

I did read one thing that was troubling, and that is that GM was able to unload health care benefits into some kind of fund. I'm really interested in how that was resolved. I'm glad you're going back to work. I hope the news is good when you get there.

Sorry I've been out of the loop as of late. I'm glad things have come to an agreement and hope that everything works out the way you want it to. Take care of YOU.
