This is a corporation getting ready to sell out to an even larger, national corporation creating a very unstable working environment. Raises for non-union staff are stagnant, no room for advancement or training opportunities for advancing technology. Non-union staff are skeleton crews, overworked, and exhausted. The computers are old refurbished PC's still on Windows 97 (in many cases!). When CNE sells out, they will leave many unemployed. Don't accept unemployment unless you can be part of one of the unions!
Co-workers still have loyalty
Management lies and create environments of fear
