That is currently where I find myself.
When our contract was ratified and I made the difficult decision to stay, despite what I was losing, I thought that would be the end of it. Boy was I wrong. Since we have returned to work it is clear that the cuts we took, the number of people retiring/or quiting, is still not enough for this company.
From the day we returned there has been an aggressive campaign against us. With the sole objective being: push them into the thinking the buyout is their only option, or write them up enough until they can be fired. Basically, get us out at all costs.
Management has threatened, brow-beat. and harrassed us. And we have been warned by a few of the supervisors who are sympathetic to us that this is only the begining.
A friend asked me yesterday why am I staying and putting up with the abuse. And sadly all I could say is at least I have a job. Which says alot about where are economy is right now. I know a lot of people who can't even say that!

So sorry to hear one should have to put up with that treatment. Like you have a job. I hope they come to their senses.
