Strike Vote at Ford

Sep 5, 2011

The strike vote passed with unusually high numbers–better than 97% voting for a strike at Ford’s five biggest plants.

Some top union leaders told the press that the vote doesn’t mean anything, it’s only a formality.

But Ford workers were the ones who voted, and Ford workers know what their vote means.

Formality? We’ll see!
