UAW announces push to organize nonunion plants after strike wins [Lauren Irwin | 11/29/23 | The Hill]

The newest push for workplace improvement will organize more than 150,000 autoworkers across 13 different automakers: BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Lucid, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, Rivian, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo, the union said in a release.

The union said the strongest push will be at the Toyota assembly complex in Georgetown, Ky., where almost 8,000 employees make Camry, RAV4 and Lexus ES vehicles.

“We still build a quality vehicle. People take pride in that, but morale is at an all-time low,” Allen said in the UAW release. “They can give you a raise today and jack up your health benefits tomorrow. A union contract is the only way to win that’s fair.”

I sure hope they are bobbing and juking like they did with the misinformation about the strike timing.

It would be great to talk about one plant and unionize another suddenly.

Oh!

UAW are trying out new ways, as we have seen with the strikes this year.

You may be on to something!

The Swedish union IF Metal is currently striking on Tesla, and the conflict has resulted in many other unions entering their own strikes targeting Tesla in solidarity. One of them, SEKO which handles deliveries have prevented Tesla from acquiring license plates and they have sued the Swedish government for this because Tesla cannot get their license plates now.

For the other strikers they’ve used all manner of underhanded tactics to dodge the strike. Scabs, alternative suppliers for foreign countries, etc.

They’re fighting tooth and nail against unions. It’s disgraceful.

Yeah the dock workers folded

Would love to join a union. I’m in biotech though and don’t know of any. If anyone does, drop a message below!
