Confessions of an NCR TM

Guys, I know that this is your site and that I shouldn’t be posting here but I just can’t hold this in anymore. NCR hired me to be a Manager then they turned me into an SS Agent through “Fear and Intimidation” techniques that I could not even tell my Priest about at Confession.

I don’t want to be a part of this CE Genocide Policy. I am Truly Sorry.

I've been hearing that CE3s have been filing age discrimination lawsuits with the EEOC. Is there a way for other CE3s to join the lawsuit, or should we file individually?

CE3 said...

I also want to join a class action lawsuit against NCR.

Anonymous said...

I also would like to hear more about the age discrimination class action lawsuit. Could someone please post a site or an email address where we may find out more information.

We are still trying to find out if this will be a national contract, with regional variations, or will every IBEW region have to negotiate any entirely separate contract?

The Supreme Court unanimously ruled against Sprint in an age discrimination lawsuit. Sprint was trying to lay off its older workers. Sprint got sued and lost. CE3s get to the EEOC!

Union + law suits = good bye Nutty and crew (hopefully without their golden parachutes).

When you say age discrimination, Is age the only criteria? What age are we talking about?

Anonymous said...

40+

Lets Vote now

We need to figure out how to get ALL the names and ages of the CE3s who were demoted with a pay cut. This way we can go ahead with a class action age discrimination lawsuit.

Anonymous said...

i'm over 50. 20+ percent paycut

30% Less said...

I'm over 50 also with a 29% pay cut.

Does this look familiar??

Hope for a future is on the rise among CE's.

Beware to Nutti and Cheadle.

PROHIBITION OF AGE DISCRIMINATION SEC. 623. [Section 4] (a) It shall be unlawful for an employer-
(3) to reduce the wage rate of any employee in order to comply with this chapter.

Get the union onboard first then we could talk class action suit

Another insult from NCR.

I have just received notification of my BPP.. A little over $400.oo dollars. This is the latest insult to be heaped on the CEs by management. They report record income and proffits, yet our BPP, which they claim is part of our "RAISES" each year, is pathetic to say the least.

WHEN DO WE VOTE???? Lets get organized people.....

CUDS said...

There are still many CE's in the New England region who need to send in there UNION CARDS. There can't be a VOTE until the IBEW receives Cards from a majority, (two thirds), of the New England Employee's. The same is true for the rest of the country. So get your co-workers to send them in, then we can VOTE!!!

Anonymous said...

Can you post a PDF file of the cards? That would help speed things up

CUDS said...

HOW WAS YOUR RAISE & BONUS, BOGUS? GET THE MESSAGE OUT TO EVERYONE TO SEND IN THERE UNION CARD OR CALL STEVE SMITH AT 978-302-3690 OR YOUR LOCAL ORGANIZER IF YOU NEED CARDS.

Okay Southeast it's up to us to win another revolution that started in Boston.
Instead of red coats they wear $1500 suits. Instead of taxing tea they have made it so we can't afford to buy it. Instead of fighting a King we are fighting a GREED NAZI.

Well instead of bullets fire back with those UNION CARDS that are being sent this week. Send those cards back ASAP. FIRE AWAY and end the error of the GREED Nazi’s.
America and the world are watching, let the south lead the Victory again.

If you do not receive a card call Bobby Hayes at (404)788-0235 or e-mail him at BHayes1022@aol.com. Or just call Bobby to let him know that you appreciate all he is doing for us.

Thanks

If you're a former CE-3 I'm sure you're over 40. File an AGE DISCRIMINATION complaint with the EEOC at WWW.EEOC.GOV Many CE's already have.

Also it is ANONYMOUS, no way the company can ever find out who is signing and dating those cards.

The battle is on, fight the greed nazi's with your union cards. Don't let them turn the middle class into the servant class.

Hello all, There has been a Class Action Lawsuit filed against NCR for missed wages and so forth dealing with lunches, admin time and so on. The lawsuit has started in California. I have a copy of it and sent it to Steve Smith to maybe post it on the blog for all to review. It's to large too paste in the blog.

Call the Lawyer representing this case, Matt Dameron at 816-714-7137 for more information.

Oop's, look's like the IBEW crept out in the night just like they did after the AT&T buyout.
