UAW Bailout

We expect big labor bosses will seek a bailout for their underfunded pension funds, but the UAW is seeking another bailout of sorts. As owners of a lavish golf club in Michigan the UAW is asking the township where the course is located for a lower tax rate — taking money right from the schools in the district.  As the Detroit News has noted, the course is a money loser for the union and is kept afloat from loans from the union’s strike funds.  Seems like workers in the UAW wish they had a mulligan on this boondoggle.
