UAW Offers to “Help” Toyota

Dennis Seid of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal has a laugh at the expense of United Auto Workers (UAW) Boss Ron Gettelfinger’s recent offer to unionize Toyota’s employees:

. . . to help the world’s No. 2 automaker “continue to be a success.”

Uh, oh! It’s no wonder that Toyota isn’t exactly jumping for joy at the prospects. They’ve done just fine without the UAW, and probably don’t need the UAW to come to its “rescue.”

Consider what has befallen General Motors, Ford and Chrysler the past few years. The UAW has certainly helped them continue to be successful, hasn’t it?

The UAW, using their compulsory unionism power, has endangered the livelihoods of the very workers they claim to represent.

Seid sums it up, “Face it: The UAW has helped turn the domestic automakers into inefficient, bloated companies. It’s why they’re shedding plants, workers and brands.”

No union, but especially not one with multiple top officials convicted in federal court of accepting bribes and embezzling workers’ dues money, should be allowed to impose unionization on workers by colluding with company officials to bypass a secret ballot vote. That’s why it is critical that any state incentive package includes a condition that the decision over whether to unionize the proposed Ford-SK Innovation Western Tennessee plant be made with workers having the full protection of a federally supervised secret ballot vote, and absent any backroom deal between company and UAW officials.
