Re: Ford Workers Reject Contract changes

Greedy UAW workers shoot themselves selves in their fetid feet!
Would someone please inform these uneducated, low-skilled buffoons that the days of union strikes are over?

While Ford is better off than GM, they too are on the knife's edge. 8:1 debt to equity, big debt payments, competition getting stiffer, expenses out the wazoo, low sales to historical averags...
Ford can't afford a mistep. If the union causes trouble, fire them all who walk the line. If enough go on strike, close the whole plan permanently. Make an example of one, say Deerborn. Put it to them straight, here is the new rate, take it or leave it.

Firing somone who's involved in a legal strike is a violation of US labor law.

And Ford would go out of business even faster than it's doing now.
The fact that the current administration is bought and paid for by big labor wouldn't help Ford's cause much either.

A lockout is not. Then fire them first.

No, import them. Use the business model RCA, HP, Intel, Microsoft, Snap-on, Sears, Masterlock and many others do. Make it offshore and import the product. Slap a Ford logo on it an go.

And 98% of the rest of Amerca should be mad as all hell. They got sold out by every Lib-Dim, including Obama. Even many a Republican supported this massivve conspiracy to fraud the US taxpayer.
Head should roll for this kind of money. SEC should be lining them up like the Italy mafia trials.

I will not buy a CAW/UAW made auto. In fact, I don't even want their parts. Best way to beat that is to buy a true import not make here. I got a glimpse of the GM prices for new autos, what a screw job, absolutely insane pricing.
GM should run an advert, "Support Government Motors, we need your cash and will stop at nothing to get it.".

But, but, but how does your opinion square what the fact that industry statistics show that GM vehicles are 20% to 30% LESS expensive to drive home, than Jap vehicles of the same size, when similarly equipped, dummy? LOL

Once again you prove you have no idea what you are talking about! US labor law does not allow striking union workers to be fired, if the contract has expired. The Union is still recognized, under labor law, as the bargaining agent for the workers. In any event ALL UAW contracts have a no strike clause in effect during the term of the contract, dummy.
That is what got the Air Traffic Control Worker fired by President Reagan, they went on strike in violation of their ongoing contract.
If the Union members vote to not accept the terms of a new contract they continue to work under the terms of the old contract, if management agrees, for a specified time or until the contract is replaced.
My techs were members of the Machinists Union and the ONLY power granted in any union, under any contract, under US labor law is the power to force management to abide by the contract it signed with the Union, period

The Ford/UAW contract has not expired, there is a re-opening clause that allows either side to request early talks, before the contract expires to AVOID a strike, dummy
What makes you believe the assembly line is filled with uneducated, low-skilled workers?

Simple. Tell them the day the contract is over, it is over. No severance needed. Minimum to get rid of the losers. Start making the replacements offshore.
Or move Ford USA into a holding company, declare Ford USA subsiduary bankrupt, close the doors and the parent Ford World lives on.

But, but, but that would be a violation of the US labor laws, dummy. Don't you ever do a search before you choose to speak on subjects of which you obviously have little or no knowledge? LOL
