Auto Union Loses Union Jobs With Arrogant Intransigence

A General Motors stamping factory in Indianapolis, Indiana – and its jobs – are as good as gone since the  United Auto Workers local 23 voted 456-96 against accepting the pay cuts necessary to save the plant.  As a result, according to the Detroit News, “Addison, Ill.-based JD Norman Industries said Tuesday it is dropping its effort to buy the factory, which means the 80-year-old plant will close next year.”

Unions exist allegedly to look out for the interests of  its members.  That there actually be a factory open to employ people would seem to be one of those interests, but hey, what do I know?
