Considering what is involved in assembling a vehicle on the assembly line and comparing that to what is involved in repairing this vehicle in the shop... I would opine that the trade union has fulfilled it's role. It has made those that put tab 'A' in slot 'B' higher in the food chain than those that actually have to know what tab A and slot B are all about.
The assembly line worker has no more chance of repairing a car than a shoe salesman has of putting new heels on your boots.
What many folks seem to have missed.... Trade unions have more clout than they have earned... While the trade union has improved the life of auto assemblers dramatically, it has inflated the cost of the automobile beyond belief.
Whatever happened to the old idea that, if you did your job, you got to keep it... that, if you did your job well, you got a raise? Trade unions work on "seniority"... You can be the worst fuck-up the world has ever seen.... If you've been a union member long enough, you're allowed to be a fuck-up.....
The really sad part about all of this is that those that do the least, cry the most.
Another question might be "has the UAW finished raping the consumer?".
