A necessary evil is what the new work schedule is. It's about being as profitable and making Chrysler as healthy as possible. This scedule is a decent way of controlling labor costs.

What is? Did Bush do it? Oh, you had the wrong letters. Yes wake up!!! This is your boy!!

The schedule, which was imposed by the Obama administration in the 2009 restructuring of Chrysler and GM, allows the company to run its plant longer, adding the equivalent of an extra 49 days of production annually compared with traditional plant schedules.
It also allows the company—whose third-quarter profits jumped 80 percent to $381 million—to cut tens of millions in labor costs by eliminating overtime payments for working more than a 40-hour week and on Saturday, which previously paid time and a half.
Under the new schedule, the paid lunch break—won by auto workers decades ago—has also been eliminated. This is on top of other break time reductions imposed in the 2009 auto industry restructuring.
With the elimination of the eight-hour day and the slashing of new hires’ wages in half, the auto companies are turning the clock backwards to the sweatshop conditions that prevailed before the sit-down strikes that established the UAW in the 1930s. This time, however, the conditions of brutal exploitation are being enforced by the UAW, which owns 41.5 percent of Chrysler’s corporate stock.
On this basis, the automaker is adding thousands of new, lower-paid workers to plants in Michigan and other states.

Linda, hold your horses, that website is nothing but crap.

Flexible Operating Patterns have been in the UAW contract since before Obama was even elected.

Read The Following Year:

2007.

You can weep now.

When did we have a paid lunch?

Are you saying nobody in the corporation works a straight 8 hours? Your wrong if you are. Sorry Obama did lay down those conditions on the advice of his czar's that he appointed. Nice try though.

Linda, read the 2007 contract. Obama had nothing to do with any Flexible Operating Pattern. But if you do not wish to READ and RESEARCH FACTS, I wish you luck living in your fantasy world full of ignorance.

Are you and your other bozos trying to tell me that if it is in a contract it could not possibly be in the conditions set forth by the Obama administration? Lol!!!

Chrysler had every intention of running Flexible Operating Patterns as far back as 2007, before bankruptcy.

Also, you DO realize that the US and Canadian governments hold no shares in Chrysler, and haven't since 2011?

None of the conditions set forth, and this is NOT one of them, apply anymore. Chrysler can do whatever they want.

Again, you seem to be having fun in your fantasy world full of ignorance. We do not wish to be dragged down with you, so stop trying.

Also, use spell check for your grammatical errors.

I'm not disagreeing that they want system. The original things u bozos were saying is it was not in the conditions of the bailout, Obama had nothing to do with it because Chrysler had it in their contract 2007 but were not implementing it. So dumb!! I c why u guys voted for Obama.

Correct, they hold no shares but payoffs happen after the fact all the time. Again I c why you guys voted for Obama, so gullible. Remember they got the Bush bailout money free and clear. Obama said Chrysler did not have to pay it back. This and the others in the article were part of the conditions. They were in the interest of sustaining the company not the union so much. But you bozos always forget without the company the union also loses. Like it or not that is the facts. U c what i mean

All I can say is....I'm glad to be with the CAW! Unfortunately, the way UAW lets the company do what they want will only hurt us big time up here.

The UAW really does not have much of a choice. The CAW does seem to have more back bone but it may end up being at their demise in the end. We will see down the road.
