    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at National Steel Car full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Kind management with an unbelievable Christmas party. Every kid gets a present and every family is planned for indavidually.

    Cons

    Union manipulates the workers. The few in control of the many. Not accurately represented.

    Advice to Management

    Don't move to another province or state side. Hamilton needs work. The majority of the workers are ok with wages.
