    i don't get it, if they're having huge costs with benefits, why doesn't GM just say fuck it to union members and hire new people ?

    The UAW is so entrenched into the bureaucracy of the company that if they got rid of all the UAW works, the company would be pounded by countless lawsuits.

    Read up all the laws and shit passed in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

    Unions have more power then the corporations.

    Businesses are FORCED to talk to the unions, deal with them etc.... Entire workforces, chaining themselves to the equipment, scabs being attacked, etc.... it is retardation

    everyone who works in the plants is a union member
    the union has its own bureaucracy that negotiates with the employer
    nonunion workers being hired will cause a strike of all the union workers, and ass beatings for lousy scabs
     
  21. Northwest Airlines didnt have much trouble busting up the mechanic union. They laid off most of them the employees.

    no, you're fucking retarded.

    unions are organizations of skilled labor
    they provide a pool of qualified workers
    as opposed to going to Home Depot and picking up some esses to do your shit

    GM shouldn't have agreed to the benefits package decades ago if it was going to ruin them
    dumbasses didnt do their research
