1. My step dad has worked for caterpillar for 35 years and they are
demanding more for less as well. For the first time I think his union feels powerless to get a fair contract. They are looking at a new contract in April 2004 and he said things don't look good at all and the union feels powerless.

He may have to retire (he is 56 and not ready to retire) just to save his 35 year pension. That is how bad it is. He is stressing and feels like he is in a no win situation.
