Toyota Won’t Agree To UAW Demands
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has some reaction from Toyota North America on the calls by the United Auto Workers to open up their plants to allow the union access to the workers. In return, UAW promises not to carry out corporate campaigns- similar to the one they have recently launched against the auto manufacturer.
Toyota’s response? No thanks. Steve St. Angelo, a top executive with Toyota, said this when asked if they would go along: “I really doubt it, because we have a no-solicitation policy at our plants. Our team members like it the way it is. And frankly, I like it.” He noted that Toyota complies with all labor laws, and how the UAW has been trying- unsuccessfully- to organize the Georgetown, Kentucky plant for 25 years.
