After Government Motors (the auto company formerly known as) General Motors, abandoned its 50% partnership with Toyota at the NUMMI plant in California last year and Toyota’s subsequent decision to close the NUMMI plant, the Union of Ailing Workplaces United Auto Workers has gone into overdrive in an attempt to shift the blame for the plant closure from GM and its Obama-administration bailoutstructured bankruptcy to Toyota.
In January, after months of unanswered questions from their UAW leadership, a union meeting for the NUMMI membership erupted with one of the UAW bosses telling members to “shut the f**k up” as members felt that the UAW was is hiding something.
The UAW’s hypocrisy in targeting Toyota for its decision to close the NUMMI plant after Government MotorsGM (of which the UAW is now a partial owner) made the decision to bail out on its workers [pun intended] and on top of the 14 other UAW/GM plant closings announced last year has not gone unnoticed by the NUMMI workers.
In this latest video, NUMMI workers are again trying to get answers to their questions from their UAW leadership who, apparently, will no longer let its members video tape meetings.
Who needs a union when the bosses are the union?

Like Sherman marching to the sea, Trump has successfully burned, destroyed, maimed and killed his way through the GOP, to what is probably stage one of the | Read More »
You would think the victorious Donald would start the rest of his presidential campaign by being, well more presidential, than the amoral, misogynistic and lying candidate he has been. You might think that, but you would be wrong.
