@#1 ... Bold move while being under federal investigation for corrupt executives taking bribes from UAW vendors. ...

Yeah. I thought the same thing when I saw that. How it is odd that an entity just keeps functioning while its chief executive is under investigation.

This is interesting. We will have to see how it shakes down - I mean out... (UAW leadership has needed a thorough cleansing for decades...)

I don't know if anyone knows about the profit sharing that was implemented last year? They last paid out some nice checks back in February this year - over 10k. But on the flip side what they did was take that money from what they were giving the dealerships. They resulted in cuts to commissions to salesmen on selling vehicles by 1/3 among other things. So it really didn't come out of profits in the end - a true rob Peter to pay Paul kind of situation...

Odd how Der Dotard has been silent on this subject so far--not tweeting support for his workingman pals, and not taking up the case of big business. Since the UAW started on the line, Trump has tweet on about 83 other subjects, but not a peep on this. He must REALLY need the votes of union autoworkers to keep alive his dream of the US being a worker's paradise...
