As a 40 veteran of industry, I will be the first to tell you there are few bigger lies than, 'Everyone will keep their same job'.

The article does not mention that he was at Sunday's meeting, but he WAS there. Also, why would the Muskingum Township trustees need to be contacted about the sale anyway. As has already been stated, it was a private sale.

The article stated Doan had been to a previous contract meeting, not at sundays meeting, unless I missed it...but I do wonder why he was contacted??...

What I would like to know is why was Gary Doan even contacted to comment? As the article said, he is retired and needs to keep his prognostications to himself. He knows nothing and needs to stay out of it. The current employees know nothing or if they will even have a job when the dust is settled and as far as I'm concerned, he had no business at the meeting Sunday and giving his predictions. Unless he is a company "mole" and knows more than he lets on!

Doan said. "Everybody's going to keep their same jobs."

How can he say this with certainty?, he's a retired employee...

Yes, but the union folks knew -- the INTERNATIONAL union, not the local fellas. Something really sounds fishy here, but when a holding company takes over, who knows what back-door dealing was underway. Look at it this way, it could have been worse, much worse. So quit squacking about a "quiet" deal. It's not quiet now.

Yes, but when it affects the lives of individuals in 240 families in a small community it is definately news and the Marietta Times is obligated to dig for the story. It would have been a classy touch for the company making the purchase to say something about their plans. The people working in the factory are not pieces of equipment, assets owned by the company and available to be used as they see fit. They are humans with dignity and deserve to know what plans the new company has for their future.

Isn't RJF still a private company? IS it not private property and business operations? Why would it be anything but a "quiet" deal? No one is expected to publicize the sale of a house or car or some other piece of property. RJF, no different.
