“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.”
— Karl Marx

The 2009 UAW-GM contract “modifications” included these innocent-looking clauses: “...innovative labor agreement provisions will have to be put in place so that such production can be done profitably...” and “The Company and the Union will work arrive at innovative ways to staff these operations.”

The Company and the Union “worked together” to cut wages of nearly half the seniority workers at Lake Orion Assembly down to $15 an hour! They claim that “innovative” means “blank check.”

Stop payment!
