<quoted text>Interesting link.
Do You see what else is in it's content? It's a TOYOTA union, not UAW. They are focused on Toyota issues. Unlike the UAW that would control strikes at virtually every sub-component manufacturer like brake parts, spark plugs, wiring harnesses, etc.
If I were to work for GM or Ford & had contract negotiations dragging out, I wouldn't expect a battery or paint company to join the strike & then all of those people to lose their income too. OR on the flip side, If I worked for the battery or paint company I wouldn't want to go on strike simply to give the GM or Ford workers more clout. I have my family to feed, clothe & house.
It would seem that Toyota, Honda & Subaru etc are competitively reasonable within their markets.
It's not the Toyota union. It's the Nihon jidosha roso, a large automotive union. Seriously, how do people who know nothing about Japanese labor keep chiming in and missing the mark?

Heh, I love someone with 0 awareness of Japanese labor law and practices ranting about how their system surpasses those dreadful unions.
Omori, yo.
Oh trust me. I've seen how those UAW unions operate. Remember, I'm a truck driver and have had the bad experience of delivering to them hundreds of times.

More than that, I know that my last two Toyota's never needed a repair--not once. While no automotive expert, I relied on the thumbs up of countless mechanics I've spoken with through the years before my switch to Japanese. I also took note at what kind of cars were usually stranded on the side of the highway when I went past them. Most were American made cars.

So you keep buying those American made union cars and support those thousands of former workers sitting home collecting their pension from the money you pay for their car, and I'll keep buying cars that will stay on the road.

I think the main problem here is your specific ignorance of Japanese labor, as these cars are made by member's of one of Japan's strongest unions.

Unless your comments are a sort of complicated satire, in which case, these are excellent.

Nice foreign language link. I used to work at Toyota Georgetown. Used to being the key words. So I was speaking from experience but of course that can be outdated besides my experience with Toyota being AMERICAN, not Japanese.

For one thing, It does NOT say that I would NOT post again. And that is the bottom line of the whole claim/issue. So much for the accusations about/against me.
Which means that YOU & others are WRONG!

And you're too ignorant to read your own links.

Now had you read your own article, you would have read that only half of Toyota's vehicles are made in Japan. Imagine how much better US autos would be today had they been able to get rid of unions in half of their plants ten or fifteen years ago.

Here is an article from 2008 by Manufacturing.net . According to them, wages of UAW workers and non-union American Toyota workers are very similar. The difference? Benefits.

While wages were about the same, with benefits, the UAW workers cost American auto companies almost one-third more per hour in total compensation.

http://www.manufacturing.net/news/2008/12/gm-...

In a more recent article in May of this year by Forbes, UAW workers pay and compensation is MORE than one-third higher than Toyota.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2013/05/...

Add to that white collar jobs at American plants pay almost twice what Toyota pays their employees for such jobs, and it's easy to do the calculations why Toyota makes a much better product than American auto manufacturers.

Hey Canton, what do you think about this?

CITING OBAMACARE, 40,000 LONGSHOREMEN QUIT THE AFL-CIO
by WARNER TODD HUSTON 2 Sep 2013, 2:51 AM PDT

In what is being reported as a surprise move, the 40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO, one of the nation's largest private sector unions. The Longshoremen citied Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation.
In an August 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ILWU President Robert McEllrath cited quite a list of grievances as reasons for the disillusion of their affiliation, but prominent among them was the AFL-CIO's support of Obamare.

"We feel the Federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people by going along to get along," McEllrath wrote in the letter to Trumka.

The ILWU President made it clear they are for a single-payer, nationalized healthcare policy and are upset with the AFL-CIO for going along with Obama on the confiscatory tax on their "Cadillac" healthcare plan.

The Longshoreman leader said, "President Obama ran on a platform that he would not tax medical plans and at the 2009 AFL-CIO Convention, you stated that labor would not stand for a tax on our benefits." But, regardless of that promise, the President has pushed for just such a tax and Trumka and the AFL-CIO bowed to political pressure lining up behind Obama's tax on those plans.

Get real and get a brain-Brietbart-come on. Anybody with half a brain knows about the outright lies that puke of a site puts out. Keep on driving that truck slobbering over every word that Rush, Breck and Hannity throws out there. The internet is full of information, you chose stupid.

Show us a rebuttal instead of attacking the author of the story. That proves nothing when you do that without proof.
