    Default Everyone in the Plant Was a Temp—Until They All Joined the Union



    At an auto parts plant in Avon, Ohio, all 60 workers were temps—until they threatened to strike.

    The workers at Detroit Chassis, which opened last year, assemble axles for F-650 and F-750 trucks for Ford’s nearby Ohio Assembly Plant. They make $9.50 to $11.50 an hour, and till now they’ve been employed by the temp agency Callos.

    In April they demanded union recognition and voted to walk out. Detroit Chassis caved on the eve of their strike deadline, agreeing to recognize the union and make them all direct employees.

    According to the Auto Workers (UAW), a strike at this plant could have halted production at the Ford factory within a day.

    And tonight our guys sit wondering when 30% of our Locals work will be given to 3 other barns. Fast food workers strike. Temps threaten too....and all we get is....the company can do that."
    Makes me sick.
