Ford At Greater Risk Of Strike After Avoiding Bailout Money

It may seem a cruel irony that the one U.S. automaker that took no bailout money is now at greater risk of a national strike as it continues labor negotiations with union leaders.

Based upon initial tallies last week, rank and file Ford United Auto Worker members were leaning overwhelmingly toward a national strike authorization against their employer. With the current national labor contracts set to expire September 14 at General Motors, Chrysler and Ford, local union representatives at Ford were reporting 97 percent of their membership was voting to authorize a strike, if necessary.

Good. I hope these fools do strike. Their jobs could be filled in a new york minute.

The climate of this economy is not good for strikes. I think it might just backfire on them and their union could go bust.

Wishful thinking I know.

If they strike you fire them on the spot. Watch how many people will put down that sign and get back to work.
