look closely at the union agreement
starting production labour (Former Employee) –  Wingham, ONFebruary 3, 2016
I was hired on a second wave of new employees, the first groop apparently quit once found other work.
A few employees in the lunch room told me a lot of changes have occurred since the company had been sold to these new owners. Look closely at your union agreement. As any job... yes show dedication and be rewarded. ... but 10yrs? Before you make a livable wage. $18.50? You will start at a progressive system $13.85is 70% of your going rate. And a year before benefits. If your fresh outta school it might be a good opportunity, but if you have bills and family it doesn't look well.
I once wanted to work for the great Wescast that valued there people, but doesn't show from the New owners. The adds look good and the people I met where great, but you will see and feel that something
is being said but held back from ya.
The problem seems way up, not on the floor.
Pros
People I met, Supervisor, Staff and employees.
Cons
Research the rumours. starting wage program may be difficult compared to most programs

Wescast Ind. is the worlds largest manufacturer of exhaust manifolds for the automotive industry which means the best quality standards and safety requirements that exceed industry standards. A great place to work with well balanced union management relations. Wescast was apart of my life for 15 years which allowed me to not only gain professional experience but personal achievement as well.
