  3. UAW should tell the workers to get back to work. There is no future in that job they will cut back workers and hire workers and make parts and cars in other countries this is being done as we speak the auto industry of long ago is over. Just open your hood most every part is made somewhere else if you want to know what is going on just ask any mechanic.

  4. The union doesn't need these workers, this is one reason they moved to Mexico in the yKate 80-90's.. they sold Delco parts, out sources their GMAC finance & floor plan officies, & moved thousands of jobs out this country.. GM no longer has loyalty to it's workers, those days are long gone.

  5. I worked along side uaw union guys in skilled trades. Laziest people I've ever in my life worked with. And had the biggest chip on their shoulder. Completely turned me off to the union. It might have been a good thing in the 30's but now it's so watered down. People don't even know their union history and the interworking politics being played is crazy. And what I don't understand is if the union is on strike why are they still letting a portion of the union workers go into work to run a Toyota lifters line ? Apparently thats their most important line , so why not hit GM where it hurts and not send workers in to run the line ??? Everything with the union is so convoluted now days. Can any UAW workers chime in on this ???

  6. Awesome! Sounds like GM is holding out, good for them. In the meantime, those selfish cry babies are hurting their suppliers. I know they could care less about them. You know those folks who make the stuff not made in house? Well they're hurting too.
