Re: UAW ad push aims to change its image

That was not a piece of journalism. It was an ad for an ad. The UAW lost a million members. It gave up nearly everything that was won by the parents and grandparents of the current members who, misled by Gettelfinger and the other execs, betrayed the sacrifices their elders made, and their own children (the two tier wage system) and who built their own scaffolds and braided their own nooses with that vile health care maneuver. The UAW leadership is an enemy of its membership. Saying much less misses points so obvious that one has to wonder what you sought to achieve.
