    CHICAGO (Reuters) - The United Automobile Workers union, an icon of organized labor in the United States, is battling to preserve jobs and benefits at teetering U.S. automakers General Motors Corp (GM.N) and Chrysler with a losing hand.

    "The UAW is not going to be a part of the final solution. They are dead meat," said Bill Adams, chief executive of Adams, Nash, Haskell and Sheridan, a labor relations consulting company in Erlanger, Kentucky.

    Even if fellow unions were to rally around the UAW, it would not change the outcome, Adams said.

    "They're along for the ride, and unfortunately, they're going to be out of business in the auto industry," he said. (continued)

    Obama owes the UAW big. He will not let them fail. Expect more taxpayer-funded bail-outs to support them.

    Oh, I get the gut feeling that we haven't heard the last of the UAW, no matter how bad we want them to be gone.
