    Obama supports the little people! (As long as they are in a Union.)

    Since when. that's been the primary tactic for sixty odd years now.

    I remember when they tried to unionize a company my dad worked at. He said the only thing they were missing from being stereotypical mafia goons was violin case leaning against the fence.

    The UAW saves the company and then the workers won't join up.

    So they tried black mail too did they? No wonder the management signed a neutrality agreement. It was either that or face not getting thier supplies show up in a timely fashion.

    I don't notice anything in the language of the deal that requires Dana employees to join the union.

    It says 9 Dana employees brought the union in. Nine out of how many total employees? Looks like a typical salt tactic by the union. Plant a few seeds to undermine the company in people's minds and offer the union as their savior.

    Been there, seen that. No thanks.

    There is no need for Unions. Corporations will always look out for their people.:eek:

    This has nothing to do with productivity increasing in the last 20+ years and real wages going down.

    Damn union. Next they might hire people to beat you up like the union busters did originally.
