UAW Solidarity Magazine

Posted in politics by roving on March 25, 2009

I’m a UAW member. I’m for fair play. Mainly for preventing a company from firing people for little reasons. As for money, we forgone a pay raise a couple times because the company is hurting. I don’t mind a wage freeze if it will help the company. After all, jobs are hard to come by these days and I’m just thankful I have a job.

I’m against some things the union is for. Things like forcing companies to use three people to do a one man job or being forced to pay workers way more then the job is worth. I don’t think its right a company is forced to keep paying health benefits to retiree’s. Every car the big three makes, they lose between $1000-$3000 because of the ridiculous high salaries these people make and paying retiree’s benefits.

I receive the UAW solidarity magazine. Its probably the most biased publication out there. It ALWAYS pro Democrat, If they have to which is most of the time, they will twist facts or leave important information out so the Dems are in a good light.

I read the letters to the editor and  The letter writers are so blind  I almost feel sorry for them after I’m done muttering under my breath.  They actually think Obama is helping them. They call the rip off of America a stimulus package like its actually going to put America to work.  The magazine failed to mention the illegals will probably snatch of a good portion of what ever job comes along. They also left out its the taxpayer who are the ones who will paying the salaries of the workers. The building of roads and bridges will only be temporary jobs. As soon as they are built and repaired, bye bye jobs.

The magazine fails to mention its the democrats who continually raise taxes and fees which in turn costs them jobs. They think its good the Government wants to control salaries. What they don’t realize, sooner or later theirs will also be controlled. That’s what Communists do. Control every aspect of your life.

They remind me of the black people who continually vote Democrat because they think the Dems fight for them when its the Republicans who fight for the people. Its the Republicans who gave the blacks their rights. The Dems are for power. Power for themselves.

What I don’t understand is why the UAW members think Obama is for them when Obama won’t even give his own brother a couple bucks so he wouldn’t have to live in a hut.  All they have to do is look at how Obama treats his family and its a clue of how he will treat you.

They don’t seem to be able to put two and two together that every time Obama opens his mouth they lose a couple thousand in their 401k. Funny how the magazine never mentions all of our life savings being wiped away because of Obama.

If it wasn’t for the Democrat’s, people wouldn’t be out of jobs right now. I noticed a slowdown as soon as the Dems took control and the longer they stay in control, the worst it will get.

If the UAW solidarity only sold the rag on the news stand, they would be out of buisness with in a few months. Its a joke.

    I’m not a union member.but I question, Bob Kings endorsement of the Presidents “jobs”bill. We had enough jobs at one time. People retired , and younger workers were there to take their place. It was a beautiful, self perpetuating thing. Then, someone made the decision to send jobs overseas, wages were cheaper, prices on everything would be more affordable. Tell me when this is going to happen? Where was the UAW when all these jobs were being lost? Where was the outcry as thousands of loyal , dues paying workers were fired or laid off? Support a bill for temporary jobs that will be financed by who?

    I’m a retired member of the UAW and I fought with International against our company just to hold on our previous contracts. We got the worst Union Reps to help us out. All the reps cared about was how long was the negiotations were to last. We had gone through a bitter strike that lasted almost seven years, did anyone from the Detriot International ever come to lend help or add pressure to the company during negiotations: NO-they just sat on their fat asses and did nothing.
    I’m sorry that I was a member of Local 604 and please stop sending that Solidary Magazine to me at once. Don’t bother me again and if you don’t work in Detroit you ain’t shit to UAW.

    I live in small Alabama town called Hamilton, I used to work at NTN Bower in Hamilton and i’m a local 1990 member. The UAW family went on strike in the summer of 2007 and its been a very long road. I’m wondering how many times the solidarity covered this strike in the magazine, I’ve not seen a single issue in the magazines about our strike. One of the brothers at the local 1990 said he thought he seen a very small artical about the strike. Every magazine i look at is about other strikes across the country, not small articals but lots of coverage, please don’t ignore this, and if there are some issues please tell me which ones. This sound crazy but this was a big turning point in the brothers and sisters lives and it means a lot to us. Thanks for the coverage you have given the unions across America, USA is the only way.

    I wish the union would fight for the worker, instead of themselves. UAW just wants our union due money, and that is all.

    Just wondering (Wife of UAW Retiree from GM Plant in Indiana:)
    Did anyone notice the picture on the front of the March-April 2013 Issue? This is our Union after Obama talked them in to selling us out. Health Care is not for Union Members. We are the ones that he called “The Cadillac Plan” I see that he has taken us over; so that he can use our Insurance Coverage to sponsor his minority poor. They were already benefiting by Free Emergency Room and Hospital Care etc. He just used that Lie to take away our Benefits. We have already lost benefits; and will probably lose all by 2014. Even the Death Tax is a Socialist – Communist Idea. We don’t owe the Government any of our well earned savings.
    Back to the Picture. DID YOU NOTICE THERE ARE 5 CAUCASIAN (WHITE-Men) No White Women
    14 Non White Total which includes 5 Non White Women. Could this be racism against whites-especially white women. I agree with several above who say the Union doesn’t represent them. They don’t represent us either. Someone agreed with Obama and we got sold out. Wake up Union people out there. Listen to the people. Also the Health Care Bill is going to ruin what General Motors provided for us for years a give us What Russia, etc. You could check with Canada – They don’t have good Health Care either. They just decide who lives and who dies. This is what they have in mind for us. I have trouble believing that Union Members are so deceived and really believe that Obama Care is for their Benefit. I think we should all be willing to help the poor; but I don’t think the Government has the right to demand that we give away our benefits. There is no way that there is enough money in our Plan to cover all of this. We need to demand that they CUT WASTE, DISCONTINUE ENTITLEMENTS, FINALLY MAKE A BUDGET AND STICK TO IT AND KEEP TAXES DOWN AND MOST OF ALL GET RID OF ALL OF OBAMA’S EXTRA CHARGES ON SMALL BUSINESS; SO THAT THERE WILL BE JOBS. This is just a partial solution to the mess that he has made in just 4 years. We need to beware of Democrats who are Globalists. America needs to run our own Government and not let the United Nations take us over. If it weren’t for America the United Nations would have failed long ago. They have failed now; but we just need to stand against a complete Take Over. The Next Thing they will try to do, is get the Union to back a Take Over Of Our Guns. Don’t Let That Happen. When They Do That, They Will Have Us Right Under Their Feet. Our Founders Set Up A Government that had 3 Branches – Each to check the others. What happened to that plan. It was the Best. Please Stand Up For Government By The People and For The People. The color of our Leaders is not the important thing. The important thing is Will They Allow Us to Worship the Only True And Living God; the God of the Bible. Please Pray! Also Please Let Your Voice be Heard by Congressmen and Women. They need to hear from all of you. Obama says we all agree with him. This Is Not True!! Thanks For Reading.

    Aren’t there any issues that we want to weigh in on.

    I receive emails every day from the White House and from the AFL-CIO. I have been with the UAW since 1970 and I retired in 2000. I don’t get anything from you guys is there anything you want to weigh in on that we could work on sign petitions or letters or phone calls to Representatives.

    I I sent the White House an email and they’ve been contacting me with all their issues and the AFL-CIO I think someone submitted my name because I’m a member of the Waterville Township Democratic club and I think someone in the club emailed me and that’s got me started on that what’s up with you guys, Is there anything I can help with I do forward these emails and I get people to help sign the petitions.
