Well by this time you have read the news!!!! Ak steel had an explosion! Around 11:45pm Sunday night 4-9-06. I am posting this around 1:15am on Monday 4-10-06 morning. What a way to celebrate my 17th year at AK STEEL>>>> THIS IS BAD BAD NEWS!!!!

"We all knew this was going to happen, it was just when!!!
The union tried to tell the company about these risks, they would not listen (AGAIN}.
This was of our biggest concerns with the lockout, our equipment getting blown up and destroyed and people getting hurt or killed!

The blast furnace was a major concern and we all knew something bad was going to happen to it when and if they tried to run this with scab workers and forced management.
This type of job is a total skilled team effort to do it safely, and yet its still a very dangered WORK area. The odds of this {EXPLOSION} was a 10 out of 10 chances with scabs, under these condition! JUST WHEN AND HOW BAD WAS OUR CONCERN!
iF you have any questions or comments about this post, please fire away as I will try to respond....
