    Default Advance Auto Parts Warehouse Workers On Strike

    https://www.wfmz.com/news/lehigh-val...ute/1116973992

    They have a lot of people participating. A lot of people on the street and in the area. I wish them well.

    I don't like strikes but since they are out I hope they are successful. I buy all my stuff from Advanced. I didn't know they were union but they are the closest auto store to me. And they give a 10% veterans discount.

    Our son is a warehouse worker for them. Advanced Auto took over the company he worked for (Carquest) here in the land of Zion. They are non union in this RTW for less state

    Scabby the Rat was present yesterday....not illegal yet I guess....I saw the story trying to exterminate the inflatable rat.


    $13/ hour with $900 deductible on the health insurance.
    Selling foreign auto parts made for pennies/hour.
    Another company probably complaining about taxes leaving their employees with no options for a family to survive but to go to the government for their needs....surely employment isn't taking care of them.


    Don't worry, investors and execs of Advanced Auto, we, the taxpayer, your former customers, got it....until you take care of your people.

    This is subscription after so many hits......but I had one more.......a judge granted the company limits on picketing.
    And something about hiring replacement workers......sick days in Lehigh County when the company has not even one bit of shame in telling the newspaper they even have replacement workers......

    There was a time when a company who hired replacement workers to replace their hired union workers would have been shunned by everybody. Total disrespect for their employees who earn the companies profits. Disrespect for the area because you show no respect for who earns the profits. Disrespect for their families for putting their parents jobs at risk. Disrespect for all of the area businesses who profit from what they spend. Disrespect of the town, county, state and nation who they pay taxes too..the workers.
    And the newspaper and judge spread the same disrespect by not shaming the company imo.


    The customers would have stopped buying at there store also until resolved..........Advance Auto is contributing to the divisiveness and to how crappy this country has become....all about investors and wall street......which has ruined more about America than their filthy money is worth.

    The carquest warehouse here was union.. Don't know what happened to them after Advanced Auto took them over I use to deliver to them at least twice a week.. Curious now and I will have to see if they are still there.. Westchester County,prime real estate.. My son is a store manager for the Autozone.. He gets fed regularly the anti union crap..He goes next week to Memphis.. Top store in the district again and he gets five days of brainwashing.. But he does get me auto parts with his discount plus they also give a veterans discount.. The little mom and pop auto part stores for the most part are history.. Napa is still privately owned franchises ..

    This DC is visible from I78 at the New Smithville exit as you leave Lehigh County going west. There are 15-20 DC's there and many are new. And there is a lot of Spanish speaking throughout them. And there were many people out during this with megaphone and a truck with a digital billboard on it.......all in Spanish... So it is probably making the other DC's a little wary.
