Live bait and ammo

Brother Shot speaks out once again about the concessionistas at the UAW:

We deserve a union solution: a collective action that unites rather than divides workers.

If the union demanded a short workweek in exchange for SUB, all affected workers would remain employed and equal. When the market goes up, workers would return to a 40-hour week without diminished wages. A real union could back the talk with a one-day walkout and send an army of unemployed workers on buses to Washington with a petition to convert closed auto plants into nationalized manufacturing centers for energy independence.

But don’t expect the Caucus that negotiated two-tier [wages] to unite the union. Collective action is not their agenda. They’re collaborators, not organizers.
