    I can check at a few other centers, what part of the country is this going on at?

    About two weeks ago we had the big Seimens trailer rebuilding a bunch of our unloader belts. They were at the hub for a good week working and then a couple more days before they moved their special work trailer out. Never heard of any labor issues concerning it. I am in the Midwest.

    I saw several of those trailers around CACH last summer along with one in Indy. I wasn't sure who was being brought in to do the work, but they would park them on a door and what looked like a complete tear down and rebuild of the Seiman extendos for both load and unload. I am not aware of any labor issues arising from them, but I am not that attune to what is going on with PE and its people.

    They replaced some of our unload docks with them a few weeks ago on a Sat. That is beyond the scope that PE can handle here.

    Union 455,

    More information is needed to make an accurate assessment of the situation you describe.

    I'm surprised Indie hasn't weighed it on this subject ---

    They did this at NewPA this past year. They replaced the last section of a lot of the loader24s. I seem to remember hearing that this type of work has to be done by Siemens. Something to do with the warranty.
