    UAW Drops Plan To Organize A Foreign Automaker Plant

    The UAW has dropped their plans to organize a foreign automaker plant. Previously, the UAW vowed to organize one foreign auto manufacturer on U.S. soil by year’s end.

    "We're shifting our strategy a little bit. We are not going to announce a target at all. We are not going to create a fight," said UAW President Bob King.

    King's announcement comes a few days after UAW spokeswoman Michele Martin said the union wouldn't meet it's goal to unionize a foreign plant by year’s end.

    Organizing one foreign automaker plant has been a goal of King since becoming the UAW's president back in July 2010. However, the goal has turned out to be an uphill, with the majority of foreign automakers declining to hear the UAW.

    This will get moved to politics if I say much more, but I have been a non union blue collar worker for about eleventy billion years, and while I do support police and fire Unions I don't have any real love whatsoever for the UAW.

    One of my many reasons for liking the GTI a little bit better than the Camaro for my next car is that it isn't built by UAW labor.

    That wouldn't sway me and the Chevy wouldn't breakdown so much. But as long as they are willing to dump cash on these elections I hope GM & CryCo buy back shares with the profits sooner than later.
