It Was A Union Contract, Not Trump, That Kept A Ford Plant From Leaving The US

Donald Trump tried to take credit for keeping a Kentucky Ford plant in the US that was never going to leave. A union contract was the real reason why the plant was always going to stay in the United States.

President-elect Trump tried to take credit for keeping the Ford plant in Kentucky on Thursday night:

Ford’s CEO said that the plant was never moving to Mexico, but that production was shifting to make room for new products that will be produced at plants in Michigan and Kentucky. Reuters reported that even if Ford wanted to move the plant to Mexico, they couldn’t, due to a union contract, “But Ford has repeatedly said it has no plans to close any U.S. plants and likely could not do so under the terms of the current United Auto Workers contract that expires in 2019.”

Donald Trump took credit for something that was never going to happen because the workers in that Ford plant are protected by a union.

It wasn’t Donald Trump who saved those jobs. It was collective bargaining.

Without a union, Ford would have been free to move the plants anywhere.

President-elect Trump is anti-union, but it is unions who are capable of saving manufacturing jobs from going overseas.

Trump didn’t do anything. He “prevented” a plant from moving that was never going to move due to collective bargaining rights that he opposes.

The real hero is the union, not a president-elect who is trying to take credit for something that he had nothing to do with.
