UAW Caught on Tape

Rank & File: “Hello. Hello.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.  This is the rank & file calling.  Are you there?  Can you hear us?”

UAW Spokesperson:

Rank & File: “We’ve read in the Automotive News that both GM and Delphi are building new plants for new green technology automobiles but they are non-union.  This isn’t true, is it?”

UAW Spokesperson:

Rank & File: “After all the concessions that we made, don’t we have a right to these new jobs?”

UAW Spokesperson:

Rank & File: “We were promised new work if we made concessions and we agreed to make all the concessions you suggested.  So why aren’t we going to get this new work?”

UAW Spokesperson:

Rank & File: “Isn’t the electric car supposed to be the future of automobile industry?  Does the UAW have a future in the auto industry, or not?”

UAW Spokesperson:

Rank & File: “Will you please get back to us ASAP.  We feel like we’re caught in an ambush and taking fire from all sides.”

UAW Spokesperson:

GM CEO: “Cal, we need some more concessions from these parts workers.  Tell them we won’t be giving them that raise we promised.  Tell the trade yo-yos we are going to cut their wages.  Tell the bargaining chairs to break the master agreement.  Solidarity is a thing of the past.  Tell them whipsawing is the new pattern bargaining.  Tell them we will need a lot more concessions as well.  Things like attendance and overtime and work schedules.  And Sweetcakes, tell them they will have to give up the right to strike too.  We can’t have that.”

UAW Spokesperson: “Yes, sir.  Right away, sir.”
