I got a letter from GM today...

that said the Union negotiated language into the "Special Attrition" agreement to cover those of us who were under 55 and penalized like I was when we took the "buyout". It said if I mail them copies of the right papers, I will be reimbursed as long as I do it before June 30th.

With all the bankruptcy rumors flying, I'm on my way to the Post Office now!

May the rest of the week be kind to each of you!

I have no idea what a "special attrition" clause is, or what you were penalized or what the "buyout" or what papers. Apart from that I'm with you all the way

Oh I do know what a Post Office is !
Hope it all goes well xxx

I'm with Jenny, it's all greek to me. No wait, I actually understand soem greek, and this isn't at all like it. It's more like Lawyerspeak... Ack!

Anyway, I'm get your are getting the paperwork done pronto! Just please be careful with the racing part. We'd like to keep you around for a while.

As long as it keeps you protected and your pension safe, sign it and mail it.

My Hubba is a controller for a Shop that makes specialized machines.
They just got a 2 million dollar contract from GM.
That doesn't sound like any Bankruptcy in the near future. anyway I hope not.
They are going to hire back many of the guys they had to lay off a couple months ago.
Good Luck Alan..

I am interested in your story. With the economy the way itis and you appear to be in the frontline of cuts, I fear that our Proud to be made in the Usa Amaricain pride might be gone forever?

I've been reading about the GM rumors too - and have been thinking of you.

Read the same stories about GM doesn't look great.
Good luck x.
