Keep the union out, and companies will at least give the Mahoning Valley a shot at jobs.

gdog Why does a union have to come in and RUIN a good company . When are you going to open your eyes and see that unions are a thing of the past. The union leaderships is what RUINED them . They are only in it for themselves.

I guess more evidence that the potential expansion of employment opportunities due to horizontal drilling and fracking operations have been overblown by corporate stooges, right?!?!

More good development news for the area (although those of us in the construction field knew this was going to happen). Keep drilling!

Unions are the problem?! ok keep drinking the koolaid, lets let billion dollar companies rape the environment and pay workers 9 dollars an hour. Does everyone forget when this area/nation was in it's heyday union membership was at it's peak. #right to work =right to work two jobs and still be broke

JRBY If this company is so bad to work for, Why did the employees vote NO for the union? HUH? From the people that work there they feel they are being treated fairly and are happy with the company.. They didn't think they need someone else to tell them what they are allow to do and what they are aren't allow to do. But when you have sheeple like you who wish to get pay for doing nothing then the unions are good
