    Default UAW wants to organize Fuyao, local president says

    United Auto Workers organizers are in town in a bid to organize the workforce at Fuyao Auto Glass, Brian Martin, president of UAW Local 696, said Thursday.

    “We need a living wage, and we need benefits that support families, not just support companies,” he said.

    Martin said the organizers are using the 696 union hall on Alwildy Avenue. He was not sure if the organizers were from regional or national UAW offices.

    I guess the workers there don't share the same sentiment as bilywambam does ...

    They have tried numerous times. One distribution center for Honda parts, located in Mt. Laurel NJ, is UAW. When a new contract is negotiated in Mt. Laurel, Honda always extends the terms of the agreement to the other facilities. As for the assembly in Marysville, if a company treats their employees fairly, with adequate pay and benefits, then enough people don't see any need for representation.
    Why is it that the UAW seems to have sparked interest in places like Mercedes in Alabama, or VW in Tennessee, or many of the other foreign based assembly plants throughout the south ?
    Because the people there don't feel they are respected, treated fairly or receive competitive wages and benefits as the rest of the industry.

    I think UAW is organizing Fuayo plant not because people are as you say "unhappy" being they JUST OPENED not even a year ago, but because it will be the Biggest windshield/glass plant in the world...but like I said, let the workers decide.

    Default Ohio Factory Workers Fight for a Union: “Everyone Deserves a Seat at the Table”

    Seems these Chinese companies come here, they get a bunch of incentives and then try to run their companies just like they do in China with slave labor. Let's see what Trump does about companies like these. I think I already know the answer.

    Forklift operator Timi Jernigan hopes President-elect Donald Trump fulfills his campaign promise to bring more manufacturing jobs to the United States. But he knows from experience that not all factory jobs are the same.
    “It’s just a big ball of confusion,” Jocelyn Johnson-Grant, who works in the plant’s print room, tells In These Times. “I’ve seen people be promoted, and then no later than one day of being in that position, they get taken out and put in a lower position,” without an adequate explanation.
    The Fuyao factory is located at the site of a former GM assembly plant that employed 5,000 workers at its height, but was closed in December 2008 during the Great Recession. The 116-acre facility stood vacant until the auto glass company—whose customers include Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota, Honda, and GM—purchased it for $15 million in May 2014.

    To attract Fuyao to Ohio, the state gave the company an estimated $14 million in subsidies. Upending the common refrain that China is “stealing” U.S. manufacturing jobs, Fuyao promised to turn the abandoned GM plant into the world’s largest automotive glass factory.

    Another story of corporate tax incentives, paid by the citizens to buy jobs.

    However a quick search produced a list of glass manufacturers that read like the world globe.
    Again, the corporate world has spread it's tentacles across the globe.
    We no longer have just American corporations, they are world corporations.
