Bucyrus Nuking, Part 4: Steelworkers Are PO'd

Bucyrus' CEO, Tim Sullivan, spoke with Sykes today.

He indicated that there will be an attempt to re-hear or reverse the decision which cost his company $600 million in sales and probably 1,000 jobs in the US.

(There is no provision for appeal in law, but the President of the US could, perhaps, find a way to influence a re-hearing in Bucyrus' favor.)

But Sullivan said something else of interest.

He specifically mentioned that Teh Won will be in Racine this Wednesday and that the Steelworkers' Union members at Bucyrus are extremely agitated about Obama's decision.

THAT, my friends, is most interesting.

Perhaps Our Almighty Leader will experience some good ol' fashioned union thuggery.

We could only wish.

Rank and file private sector union folks are really not so much behind Captain Kickass.
