re: Dealership internet pricing - Nobs
Mac Hiak won't move off that price. They are the largest volume Ford dealer in the US and do so by showing you their rock bottom price and not moving. I bought in 2013 and best I could do at competing dealers is get them to match. No one in the Houston Metro area will go below their advertised p...

[quote]What specifically makes them null and void? They were only handshake agreements at this point anyway, correct?[/quote] I may be overstating. This is specific to Deer Park. The local terms were already agreed to, prior to the strike. The "rumor" was that after 30 days they were null and...

re: USW strike...** POSSIBLE END IN SIGHT ** - Nobs
Deer Park was running 310k on average. Port Arthur started slow and ramped up, but PA is typically fricked up anyway. No idea on Convent and Norco was in the 220ish range after the Entergy issue two days in. The local terms of the contracts are null and void and must be renegotiated. Word on ...

re: USW strike...** POSSIBLE END IN SIGHT ** - Nobs
This isn't going to last for months because the first facility to decertify will be the first domino falling. Rapid succession after that. Norco and Deer Park are practically in a race to get to the numbers required to force the vote. ...
