CAW's Hargrove To Detroit: Piss Off You Back-Stabbing Bastards
I'm paraphrasing. In fact, Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union president Buzz Hargrove told Autoweek [sub] he'll play hardball when it's his union's turn to talk contracts next summer. There'll be no concessions from the CAW. As in none. Hargrove's fuming over the speed with which GM and Chryslerberus announced shutdowns and layoffs after the UAW approved their contracts. "This just reinforces my thinking that you can't change a situation with two-tier wages, VEBAs and concessions." Then in the "DUH!" statement of the year, Hargrove observed if Chrysler's workers had known what was coming they wouldn't have approved the contract. "You'd have to be blind not to see that it was hidden," he added. So… uh… did he just say the UAW was stupid for ratifing the agreement?
