UAW is just out to collect more dues. they are already asking their current members to raise the membership dues this year.
maybe if the union bosses weren't pay 500k a year or more they would have more money.
the biggest hitch is that the workers there saw what the UAW did to the big 3 and wanted no part of it.
of course i want to know why the union people running the plant didn't say something was wrong and why they were dumping ash into the river or in the case of WV why no one notice a tank dumping 5k pounds of chemicals.

This is a good thing, as UAW plants tend to shut down, and despite the lefts recent spin-jobs and productivity are good things.
their constant demand for more more more with no regard to the global economy is what has killed them.
it costs an US auto plant 70 dollars an hour to pay for 1 union worker.
it costs the same foreign plant 60 dollars or so. the reason? pension mostly.
US plants continue to run up huge legacy costs on pensions while their counter-parts are smart and went with good matching 401k's.
