That's all old news let's talk new...

The dues money should go towards improving the work environment, the pay and working conditions but it all goes to political activities instead...

as king wants to make the Nazi party uaw politically relevant again with his decision to involve them in the 99 Percent Spring movement...

he calls it - taking "social justice" to a new level and with hopes to gain the political clout so he can become a "one-percent-er" through role-playing.

"King's focus on issues that have little to do with the automobile industry or their jobs in it." http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120424/A ...
Yes that's very true...

there should be a law...

where's SCOTUS and the law that
protects our rights against communist actions like this.

Too Funny.

I'd be in favor of union "a la carte" service. I work hard. I don't report to work drunk or high. I don't cause anyone trouble. Why do I need to pay the Mafia (aka the union) monthly protection money (dues). Like the mafia forces a business to pay for "protection" ( pay or else you and your business will suffer), we are forced to pay the wasteful, greedy union monthly dues or "else". No union membership, no income from Chrysler. Just as mafia extortion is illegel, so should union extortion. If a worker does not want or need UAW or CAW membership, he should be able to opt out and save 2+ hours a month of wages. What a scam.

We know you were only kidding about the paying back part and we know it wont happen because of the current administration. They are moving to China because the Nazi party workers and high taxes here are strangling them with more yet to come. What happens when the economy in China stops like it does here has yet to be seen. Choke away parasites.

with 2 tiers, that ain't ever gonna happen, i hear they want to kick out Karavan Knight and insource the janitors back to chrysler since 2nd tier came in the picture, Karavan Knight is paid $45/hour for each janitor per hour, then in turn pay the janitors like $15/hour plus benefits of around 7 an hour and pocket the rest, do the math

Yes that's very true...

BM is just another Fleabag who is infested with those self-promoting fleas...

who not only killed the Business and Industry once already...

but it kills those jobs that are meant for others.

As obama holds the strings to the Tax Payer money and allows them to eat up the Tax Dollars and all the while...

BM pays no taxes.

Go Figure.

... and Mitt will pick up where Bushey junior left off. Sipping mint juleps on the veranda of his plantation called America, while turning the working man into a corporate slave picking profit for them. Never enough profit. A two digit increase annually or the faggot ceo's start to chit their panties.

Too funny.
