So if Aisin went union and we made more money and we had a say in our working conditions and we actually had a pension or better benefits, and we voted for all this, Then we would be able to put more money into our community and be happier at work and home? Sign me up !!!!! I reserched and googled the words "how can a union help" seems to me the company don't want one cause they don't want us to have a say in anything.

Right now, without a union, employment laws heavily favor your employer, not you. For example, did you know that under the law you are an “at will” employee, and can be fired for no good reason at all? Labor laws also permit the employer to change work rules and compensation packages on a whim. As a worker without a union, you have very few protections, and little or no job security.

With a union, that’s not the case. You will have a legally binding contract that will guarantee your working conditions, compensation, and benefits

Aisin Seiki is diligently drawing up solutions based on discussions of mutual faith and understanding to address problems between labor and management AISIN and its labor union concluded a labor-management agreement with the stated aim of continually improving Company prosperity and union members' working conditions through mutual trust and cooperation between the Company and the union, to foster stable labor-management relations.

In FY2010, employees of ADVICS newly joined the AISIN labor union, making a total of six key Group companies* that work together to build labor-management relations. The number of labor union members reached 29,000.

* Aisin Seiki, Aisin Takaoka, Aisin Chemical, Aisin AW, Aisin AI, and ADVICS.

There's an old saying in business that anyone can run a business when it's going good. Not anyone can run a business when it's going bad.

The true purpose of the union is to protect people when the company is in a position to protect share the pain when things go bad. With a union, the company has to think twice before cutting the union labor, which usually leads to them considering an equal cut in management as well. What you are asking is for equal and fair treatment - nothing more, nothing less. Don't get caught up in the single bad decisions made by management because those don't represent the overall responsibility of the company. Focus on the global picture: equality and representation for all workers.

For those of you who don't like the idea, it's probably because Aisin has been good to you and your families. I'd ask you to consider a difficult question: If you had a disagreement with management, would you feel at risk? If so, then your opinions are not truely valued.

Representation should solve the major issues of ensuring workers are treated fairly when things go bad. I think everyone agrees that if Aisin is in a difficult situation financially, then the workers should go through that pain with them. However, the workers should not have to bare all the load. Remember, when the company is doing good, the management are rewarded and the workers are asked to work endless overtime. When the company is doing bad, the management is protected by "creative staffing" methods that protect budgets.

It's just the way it is, folks. Be smart - form a union and stop focusing on the single issues that create arguments that can't be won on either side. Stay focused on "Representation for Equality and Fairness" and everyone will understand "why" you are considering this move.

Just my two cents...

My union comp at Visteon at bedford was 2 years at school thanks union . It was the same at Conersville maybe thats why there is 940 empty homes on forcloser there school money dosent pay the bills . My good friend that works at GM got a 25,000.00 car voucher WOW no job no money lets go buy a new car . They told them they could sell the vouchers but dont get caught you may face legal action . Unions are getting smaller and smaller for a reason . I can google any thing about a union its so full of lies and deceptions ive worked in a union thats why im out of one . Wait to they tell you to strike you need money to make your house payment then they start bussing in people to do your job . Thats when it hits you no matter what it can be moved or you can be replaced union or not you are not safe !

Anyone that has been a union member knows the scenario. Union hierarchy exploit the union members for the union leaders benefit and a few self-interested individuals.The union leaders present their high minded ideals and promises encouraging loyalty and faith in the noble cause.
The tactic is to make outragous demands on the employers to show the membership the union means business.wnen the employer rejects the union demands and counters with their offer they then enter into negotiations and the union members are caught in the middle and are the pawns. When it is all settled,the union takes the praise ,collects the dues from the guiliable.
The same old picture

The union canot do anything about your job they canot give you anything writtin that you will have your job forever . WOW . You are really in deep they have you brainwashed . We got our 2 year contract at Visteon it was closed in a year . You can put in a grievance if you dont like something it may get fixed it may not . The really bad thing is a union hires you for a job lets say your a welder well they need some help in production a union member can decline and say thats not his job . So there goes your teamwork out the window . I know how the union is I have worked it . It makes people monsters and lazy .

Thats a bad example because its like saying my neighbor was given a gun and he robbed a store and shot a guy, so dont ever give someone a gun. The fact is some people are like that, look at management!! the tools they have and they use them against us !! Your already blaming us for what others have done. NEXT!!

Anyone of you would be a fool not to want a union in here. And not to want AFLAC. Its a fact thoose of us 30,40 years old are more likely going to come down with cancer or any illness. I dont know. But Ive seen quite a few friends at work get very sick and the financial responsibility is tremendous. Atleast with AFLAC it relieves the burden.
Union dues are about $35 a month. To me its worth it knowing they cant fire you. But you know were going to offset that.
And that card Warf was taliking about. Yea of course he doesnt want you to sign it. First of all it gives a union a chance to come in and talk to you. Second and most important it forces companies to open there books so we can see what is really going on. Isnt that true Warf. You know it is. That card hes talking about doesnt say you vote one way or another it says you want the opportunity to vote either yes or no.
The federal Govt. takes over when you vote nobody id in there and nobody knows who you voted for because they all go in a big box. And your name isnt on it. You give them your name when you walk in they mark you off. Then you vote. The Fed Govt. Handles everything

A union and a company will fail if you ask unrealistic things. But were not and you know that. Ask upper management do the companies in Japan have a union and a pension? And how about our own management what do they have? You know you cant lie to them now tell the truth waf. Because I know ,and you know I know.
Please rember NLRA Its your right to pursue collective barganing.
