Ted, as you requested,
Here is a mid month News Report at WRC/MSNBC:
Local Field: New Field Cameras are being tried out at WRC.
Trucks and generators are still issues at WRC. There is one old short-mast truck (Stinger) that is still in service. It was taken off the books in January and
was supposed to have been replaced in that month (January 2007). This truck is an ergonomic nightmare for the operators. The previous one of these trucks was taken
out of service due to chassis cracks / broken frame. Money is not being spent on upgrades , because, it was supposedly being taken out of service. NABET
was told in grievance meetings and in HR , by management, that the truck would be gone by January, 2007. Well, it is now over 11 months past that date. Members are
are suffering back and leg problems working with the vehicle. It is time for NABET to demand a thorough Safety Inspection both Mechanically and Physically of the frame, engine and safety equipment of the vehicle by a totally independent source separate from NBC and management.

or the other. NABET 31 does this work at
letter between NBC and NABET. Carl is familiar with the letter and this on-going incident. Carl has his name and info.
That is all I have for now as of 11-11-2007.
