Government Fine Print is like a box of chocolates! Bailout agreement prevents Union’s from striking General Motors or Chrysler. What? UAW to vote Sept. 2 on Strike against Ford Motor Co.
Journal is reporting that the United Auto Workers (UAW) is asking its members
to authorize a strike against Ford Motor Company in a vote scheduled to occur
by September 2.
While strikes against
the so-called Big 3 U.S. automakers, GM, Chrysler and Ford, are nothing new,
this year is the first where the union's and the federal government have a huge
financial stake in two of the three.
It turns out that Ford, the
lone U.S. automaker which said no to accepting a government bailout, is the
only U.S. automaker that the UAW can strike under the bailout agreement.
