Cummins technicians at the San Leandro California branch walked out yesterday over Cummins lousy medical plan. After 18 months of negotiations, management demanded that the techs give up their existing plan, even though they were willing to pay more for it. And even though techs could opt in to the Cummins plan if they chose. Ten techs have quit in the last year and Cummins can’t find any new ones, even though business is booming

Scummins Fails and diservice
I assume this is one of the distributors that Cummins scooped up. Good luck fighting the corporate machine fellas.
Day 3 of the strike. Rather than come to their senses and concede to allow union members to retain their existing healthcare plan HR has opted to wipe phones, lock out WWID's and make demanding threats towards unwavering technicians. The Machinist Unions robust healthcare plan is a small price to pay compared to the loss of sales and service revenue Cummins will realize following their ignorant measures. Cummins has brought in scabs to complete field work in progress for national accounts, however these scabs have kindly been shown the sidewalk by union electricians. UNIONS SUPPORT UNIONS to protect the working class from scumbag company's like Cummins Inc. It's all too simple! Treat people the way you want to be treated! When employers take good care of their employees the employees will take good care of their business! That's how you increase profits, NOT by eliminating jobs and screwing over the workers!
Is there a link to this story? Also this doesn't sound good for the whole company.
