Uaw-money33 progressive communist democrats DEMAND non-union carmakers bend over for the communist unions who fund their campaigns…

After destroying Detroit, “Motor City,” Michigan, and other towns associated with manufacturing vehicles and components, the United Auto Workers is targeting Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Rivian, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Nissan, BMW, and others, and urging them to roll-over for union organizing campaigns.

There was a time when unions were valuable in combatting management bullying, exploitation, and unsafe work environments, all now protected by federal laws and a cadre of lawyers. So what do unions do: they impede innovation and automation, promulgate costly and nonsensical work rules, put union workers on the company payroll to perform union activities, and demand increased wages and benefits with little or no corresponding increase in productivity. They are communist parasites headed by corrupt officials whose business model is dependent on political corruption.

Now, the bought-and-paid-for commies want the non-union carmakers to ignore the union thugs pressuring their workers to join a union.

Excerpts from the joint letter

We applaud the United Auto Workers’ (UAW) historic agreements with GM, Ford, and Stellantis—the Big Three—which are a testament to how powerful workers are when they come together to collectively bargain. Many workers had concerns that the transition to electric vehicles would translate to fewer jobs, plant closures, or lower pay. However, the UAW’s securing of a just transition ensures workers at electric vehicle battery plants can earn the same high wages other UAW members earn. It further demonstrates that the electric vehicle transition can and must create good-paying jobs. It is time now for non-union automakers across the United States to demonstrate that same commitment by pledging not to interfere in any organizing activities occurring at its plants through the implementation of neutrality agreements.

We understand that UAW has begun organizing efforts at 13 non-unionized automakers: Tesla, Rivian, Lucid, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo Cars. We are concerned by reporting at numerous automakers that management has acted illegally to block unionization efforts. For example, according to employee accounts, Volkswagen managers confiscated and destroyed pro-union materials and Hyundai supervisors unlawfully banned pro-union materials in non-work areas outside of normal working hours. In addition, the National Labor Relations Board found that Tesla employed multiple illegal tactics aimed at stopping organizing efforts including online harassment, employee interrogations, and retaliatory firings. These retaliatory actions are hostile to workers’ rights and must not be repeated if further organizing efforts are made by these companies’ workers. We therefore urge you to commit to implementation of a neutrality agreement at your manufacturing plants.

A neutrality agreement solely consists of an employer agreeing not to engage in pre-election activities that influence workers’ freedom to form a union. Your commitment to neutrality would ensure that management does not pressure workers into voting against unionization or delaying the election process. We believe a neutrality agreement is the bare minimum standard manufacturers should meet in respecting workers’ rights, especially as companies receive and benefit from federal funds related to the electric vehicle transition.

Quid pro quo…

Buying Senators is not the exclusive purview of the unions; the carmakers also employ lobbyists to influence the congressional whores who are most likely offering continuing subsidies and large contracts for supplying government vehicles.

Who are the progressive communist democrats who signed the letter?

U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Gary Peters (D-MI), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Laphonza Butler (D-CA), Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Bob Casey (D-PA), Ed Markey (D-MA), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), John Fetterman (D-PA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Tina Smith (D-MN), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Peter Welch (D-VT), Patty Murray (D-WA), Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Jack Reed (D-RI), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Cory Booker (D-NJ).

Bottom line…

If you ask who’s getting screwed: it’s you, the consumer, who pays the artificially inflated car prices—the ordinary schmuck who is forced to pay higher taxes. At the same time, elected officials profit from inside information.

Remember, we are not speaking of precision machinists, but, for the most part, functionaries and assembly workers who bolt the components together – not exactly a $100,000/year position.

We are so screwed.

We need to remove the progressive communist democrats from office and get the communist unions out of politics.
