Any way you cut it ... it's good this deal seems done: Ford, UAW Reach Tentative Agreement.
Clearly, Ford was in the most precarious position of the US Automakers ... and once again almost incredulously so ... for not having accepted the Federal bailout.
That, of course, meant that GM and Chrysler could not be struck by the Union subject to federal law.
Ford, on the other hand, was flying solo. Subject to whatever "flight of fancy" overtook the UAW. Almost remarkably, the union seems still not to have "gotten the message" of 2009 ...
"Ford workers feel the deserved a sweeter deal than GM got because Ford didn't follow GM and Chrysler LLC into bankruptcy and Federal bailout in 2009"
Wait a minute ... have I got that straight? Since Ford wasn't on the ropes in 2009 (no, not in 2009 ... it was only a year earlier (!!!) ... when Ford mortgaged the entire company - on their own backs - right down to the script on the door!!), that somehow this means the union should be profiting more from Ford?
Could be possible the union is still populated with birds of a different feather than those that know how to "fly right" ...
