Why of course.

I don't think it is correct that they were non-union. I think the Moraine plant had the IUE as the local union rather than the UAW.

The current title of the article is "UAW Freezes Rival Out of Rebound". I don't know if you changed it or if the WSJ changed it since you posted.

I was right about the IUE. The article does make it clear that they were unionized plants, just not under the UAW. It was covered by the International Union of Electrical Workers because it used to be a Frigidaire plant which GM kept when it sold off the Frigidaire division. The workers stayed with the IUE when the plant was converted to make trucks.

I'd welcome a rule that if someone posts from a subscription-only site, that post #1 should carry a "Cliff Notes" style summary of the whole article.

so, what does the rest of the article say? Thanks.

Thus it has always been. The average union guy I know would crawl across six lanes of broken glass to punish a “scab”.
