A UAW spokesman laughed when asked if he thought Donald Trump would be a good mediator for the General Motors auto workers strike.
United Auto Workers president Dennis Williams said on Thursday he feels "very strongly" that if Nissan Motor Co Ltd workers at the automaker's plant in Canton, Mississippi voted now, they would vote in favor of union representation.
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.
Donald Trump talks about bringing jobs back to America, but it is Hillary Clinton who the 1 million strong United Auto Workers have endorsed for president.
The late Friday votes are in and yet another union is kept out. Workers at the Chattanooga Volkswagen plant were given the opportunity to join the UAW and they said no.
Besides a clarion call for confederate rebels to oppose Northern invaders, the Republican interference in a private business is sheer hypocrisy when they claim to be champions of free enterprise and oppose government interference with business.
Last night, Rachel Maddow applied her razor-like intellect to expose the inherent hypocrisy in the modern GOP, hiding beneath a thin veneer of cowardly double-talk. One of her examples was Bob Corker, R-TN. Corker fought to kill the US auto industry. He filibustered the auto bailout, holding it hostage until he could be promised that the auto workers would be paid less and ultimately voted no on it.
