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.

      All of us conservatives and Nunnelee supporters need to expose the high level of union contributions made to Childers. Mrs. Obama and others who will campaign for Childers are the water carriers for the liberal demo-unions. They have made contributions to Childers with the expectation of gaining a foothold into Toyota. The union war with Toyota has been going on for some time and is heating up. Nunnelee needs to put the right to work laws of our state in Childers’ face and before the public. Remember too that Mrs. Obama is an SEIU favorite and that demo-unions would like no more than to unionize the cafeteria workers and other employees of our school systems. If the UAW got into the Toyota plant in Blue Springs and got into our school systems, They would in effect skirt our right to work laws. Under union control, only union members(and demo voters) could get jobs in these areas. We only have to look at what as taken place with GM and Chrysler to see what ill they have wrot.

    Stand tall Toyota the Unions are own and controled by Obama. I want someone to tell me how UAW can own over 20% of Obama Motors and represent the membership. Toyota I was in a Union on the job hit headon by
    illegal Mexicans could not work anymore forced to retire that great Union took all most half of my retirement for early retirement. I lost all my benefits. I ended up with no Ins. nothing. So I am one that hates the damn unions. They are in the pockets of the Gov. they pay Obama and the gov. Then waste billions of the members money doing this to stay in good with the liberals. While this same Gov. keeps going after the same Big Bus. that pays these same Union that keeps the union members working. These same Union that gets the Cad. deal in health care that the rest of us don’t get. Trying to strong lagre company’s out of bus. Before the Gov. took over the Unions they were great but now all the Hoffa’s and the rest of the ass holes care about is the millions they make at the top of the unions they care nothing about the people pay them. So tell them to kiss off. And go back to Japan if need be don’t let them push you around. If I come up missing you know who did.
