For three days, June 12-14, workers at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., voted whether to allow the United Auto Workers union to represent them. The union narrowly lost the election, 833 to 776. Over 90 percent of the plant’s 1,700-plus workers voted.Compared to the first plantwide vote in 2014, which was 712 to 626 against the union, the UAW inched closer to securing a win.The need for union representation is glaring. Workers’ No. 1 complaint is the high rate of injuries at the plant, caused by line speedups and trying to get more work out of fewer workers. Repetitive motion injuries are commonplace, and injured workers are routinely put back on the same job that caused their injury. Another big issue is last-minute shift changes and overtime scheduling that make it hard for workers and their families to plan their lives. The company was not going to address these or other issues on its own as a matter of conscience.Volkswagen, which during the 2014 vote feigned neutrality, now wants to keep Chattanooga union-free. For four years after the National Labor Relations Board certified that the UAW had won an election covering 160 skilled maintenance workers at the plant, Volkswagen refused to bargain. Yet VW argued to the NLRB that an election involving all the plant’s hourly workers could not go forward because of the smaller unit’s vote.The NLRB bought VW’s frivolous argument and denied the UAW’s petition to hold an election in late April. This would have been shocking, except for the fact that, with four of five board members appointed by Trump, anti-labor rulings have become routine. After the union filed a new petition, the June election was set.Delays bought union busters timeThe UAW took signed authorization cards from a majority of the VW hourly workers when it went to the NLRB in April. Why the loss?Delaying the election gave VW and other anti-union forces nine weeks to mislead and frighten the workers into rejecting the union. There were constant ads on TV, radio and billboards appealing to prejudice and warning of “domination” by the Detroit-based union. Management gave out free T-shirts that read, “One Team: I am Volkswagen.”Workers were required to attend company-run morning meetings where speeches and leaflets conveyed a one-sided message. Workers were harassed for wearing union stickers or passing out union literature. VW CEO Frank Fischer himself addressed the workers; he claimed a vote for the union could cause the plant to close.Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee addressed one meeting, emphasizing his negative view of unions. The state had given VW over half a million dollars worth of tax breaks to lure the company to Tennessee. Governor Lee and other politicians implied that voting union could trigger a loss of incentives. Without the incentives, politicians suggested Volkswagen would cancel expansion plans to build a new electric vehicle in Chattanooga.To court workers, the company also made some improvements — which they could have made all along — including cooling the plant, more desirable schedules and ouster of unpopular managers.The monumental level of propagandizing and fearmongering over more than two months was enough to tip the scales in the company’s favor.How can the UAW win?Asian and European auto companies have over 30 plants in the U.S., almost all in Southern states and all non-union. Nissan defeated a union drive in Canton, Miss., in 2017 by using scare tactics similar to VW’s. A victory at VW could have launched a massive organizing drive at the other foreign-owned transplants — which would in turn boost organizing across the South. The UAW is demanding changes in the labor laws that allow corporate intimidation to take place. “Over a period of nine weeks — an unprecedented length of time due to legal gamesmanship — Volkswagen was able to break the will of enough workers to destroy their majority,” said UAW Organizing Director Tracy Romero. (UAW.org)The VW vote exposes the fraudulent character of “democracy” under capitalism. There is no real right to organize if companies can threaten to close plants or fire workers for organizing.Some workers, however, claimed they weren’t against having a union, they were just against the UAW. These may be face-saving claims, but they could be an honest reaction to real problems inside the UAW.So far nine people — UAW Chrysler Department officials and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles executives — have been convicted in a bribery scandal, with more under investigation. FCA gave lavish amounts of money to UAW leaders, allegedly to get them to sell members an inferior contract in 2015.This outrageous corruption is an outgrowth of the long-standing orientation of the International UAW leadership toward “partnership” with company management. For decades, concessions have been peddled to the rank and file to keep corporations “competitive” or “profitable.”The loss at VW — with wages that are the lowest among the transplants — takes place as the UAW begins negotiations for new contracts with Ford, General Motors and FCA. The Detroit Three will use lower transplant wages as ammunition, arguing that higher labor costs make them less competitive. But now that the Detroit auto companies are making billions in record profits, the leaders are feeling a push from below. The rank and file want to reverse concessions and get rid of tiered wages — a divisive scheme where newer workers doing the same job as higher-seniority workers make less pay. Current contracts have new hires classified as temporary. They have few rights, can be fired with little recourse, and their pay is actually lower than that of VW production workers. It may well take a strike to make real headway. For the UAW to be attractive to potential members, as well as hold on to current members as more states become “right-to-work-for-less,” the union must break up its partnership with capital. It’s time to revive the fighting spirit of the 1936-37 sit-down strikes!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Alexander Rossi from California toasted with Indiana dairy farmers a week ago and then was handed the prized bottle of milk by milk lady Janet Dague after winning on fuel strategy, nearly running out of E85 but coasting in for the win.In recent years, ethanol has played a role in America’s two premiere racing series, NASCAR and IndyCar. It’s E85 that powered the Chevrolet and Honda engines flying around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday, but it’s not quite clear to IMS historian Donald Davidson what fueled cars in the beginning.“In the beginning I think a lot of people used castor oil but I don’t know that that is true,” Davidson said. “But I know that the first use of alcohol and blends started I think probably 1927 and very quickly caught on. There was a set of specifications in the late 1920’s that the cars were 91 ½ cubic inch or 1 ½ liters supercharged, and they used exotic alcohol fuel.”Gasoline has powered the Indy 500 cars in the past but it ignited easier and the safer alcohol fuels, methanol and now ethanol took over. Paul Dana was an Indy driver who pushed for ethanol adoption, which finally happened in the mid-2000’s, and he was the first driver of the entry sponsored by an ethanol promotion organization. But Davidson says there had been a push for ethanol previous to that.“I remember one year Gordon Johncock, and this would probably be ’95 or so, he had retired pretty much, but he said he did have a group talking to him about running a car that would run on ethanol and that the car would be painted up like an ear of corn! That never went very far.”Now E85 is the mandated fuel by IndyCar rules.Just this month Donald Davidson received Indiana’s highest civilian honor, The Sagamore of the Wabash presented by Governor Mike Pence.Hear more on fuels in the full HAT conversation with Donald:Donald Davidson at IMS-2016 Previous articleBoats can Use Fuel with EthanolNext articleLate Planted Crops Doing Well Andy Eubank

TWO teenagers have been sentenced to three years in detention for the possession of a sawn-off shotgun at Knocklisheen Road on December 2, last year. First cousins, 17-year-old David McCarthy of 87 Cliona Park, Moyross and 18-year-old Noel Stanners of 49 Shanabooly Road, Ballynanty Beg, had pleaded guilty to the possession of the weapon after gardai caught the two red handed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick Circuit Court heard from John O’Sullivan, counsel for the State, that the two were “part of organised crime in Moyross and were found in possession of the deadly weapon connected with a bloody, violent and deadly feud in the city”.Arguments between counsel for the State, and defence counsels Brian McInerney and Mark Nicholas on the relevance of the background, were conducted before Judge Carroll Moran refused to exclude it from the case, as it was felt it was relevant to the proceedings.The court heard that the two had the weapon, with cartridges, last year, but had pleaded guilty and accepted their responsibility in the matter.Judge Carroll Moran said that he would give discount to the sentence imposed due to their early pleas but that an aggravating factor was that both were caught in possession of a firearm that was related to a feud in the city.The Judge added that the “recognition of harm of guns in society” must be realised, and due to the very serious nature of the offence, detention was the only suitable way of dealing with the teenagers.David McCarthy was sentenced to three years in detention, with three years supervision by the probation services after his release.Noel Stanners was sentenced to three years detention, with both serving their sentences in St Patrick’s Institution.Judge Carroll Moran lifted the reporting restrictions on minors for the case, as he said it was “very much in the public interest” to know who was in the possession of “deadly weapons”.

Twitter Linkedin WhatsApp Limerick on Covid watch list Email Facebook Print LABOUR TD Jan O’Sullivan has called on Limerick City and County Council to get on with the work at the scenic Red Path walkway in Corbally.Deputy O’Sullivan, a local resident, says there is a lot of anger among the people of Corbally and people from other parts of Limerick at the closure of the Red Path. The walkway is beside the River Shannon, running from the Corbally Baths to the Corbally Road beside Athlunkard Bridge.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up She has urged the local authority to get on with the work, claiming the path has been closed for three weeks with no sign of any work taking place.“This is a hugely popular walking route that leads directly to the Smarter Travel walking and cycling way along the Shannon Fields to UL on one side and the city canal on the other. I have had numerous queries as to what is going on,” Deputy O’Sullivan told the Limerick Post.“The sign says: “Footpath closed, works in progress” but there are no works in progress. When I looked for clarity the reply from the Council was that it is closed for remedial works but they couldn’t tell me when they will start or when they will finish.“If the path is going to be upgraded that would be welcome but we need to know and we need to see the work starting so that this beautiful scenic walkway can be open again as soon as possible.”There was no response from Limerick City and County Council at the time of going to print.

Twitter Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Ray Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies. A variety of factors drive economic performance, from policy decisions to industrial composition to natural resources. Some of these can be influenced over time such as by fostering a climate which is business friendly or targeting particular industries for development efforts. It is also possible to enhance growth by encouraging education and training which meets the needs of growing firms, and cycles within industries can affect overall patterns. We recently looked at employment data by state and industry which is maintained by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to get a feel for how states and industries are doing and how Texas stacks up.First, let’s take a brief look at how employment changed for the nation as a whole for context. During 2017, U.S. nonfarm employment expanded from 145.7 million to 147.9 million. Although the lowest since 2010, this gain of 2.2 million net new jobs represents a fairly healthy rate of growth for the year of 1.51 percent. All of the major industry groups added jobs over the period, led by services industry groups including education and health services (470,000), professional and business services (429,300) and leisure and hospitality (348,800). Construction also saw a notable uptick, rising by 308,800, while manufacturing increased by 170,100, which is very encouraging.The states with the largest numbers of net new jobs were California (342,500 net new jobs), Texas (306,900), and Florida (213,500). Together, these three states account for about four of every 10 new jobs in the United States last year. It falls off sharply from there, with the next-largest gain in New York (98,300).As in the rest of the nation, services industries drove growth in California and Florida. In California, construction industries added about 56,000 net new jobs, but manufacturing in the state contracted by about 2,000 jobs. Florida also experienced strong gains in construction (up 43,900), while manufacturing rose by 16,200.Two states actually lost jobs last year. Alaska employment dropped by 2,200 jobs, with several industry groups losing ground. In Delaware, where about 600 jobs were lost, trade, transportation and utilities; leisure and hospitality; and professional and business services were the roots of the decline.Turning to the rate of growth, several smaller states turned in impressive increases including Nevada (up 3.31 percent), Oregon (2.66 percent) and Utah (2.61 percent). Each of these areas experienced gains in services industry groups as well as construction and manufacturing. Texas was next in terms of rate of growth, with a 2.53 percent increase, by far the highest among the larger states in the country.Of the 306,900 jobs added in Texas, about 52,600 of them were added in professional and business services, 42,400 in leisure and hospitality, and 30,700 in education and health services. Notable gains were also seen in construction (up 27,900), due in part to Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.The Lone Star State added an impressive 36,300 manufacturing jobs. In fact, Texas accounted for a significant portion (21.34 percent) of net new manufacturing jobs in the United States. Given that no other state came close to this level and a number of states actually lost manufacturing jobs, the Texas increase is particularly noteworthy. Texas also contributed about one in five new jobs in the (1) trade, transportation and utilities and (2) financial activities industry groups.Last year saw some states (such as Nevada) continue to dig out from lingering problems associated with the Great Recession. Others (such as California) saw strong growth in some industries but a decline in manufacturing. Overall declines in employment contrary to national patterns were seen in some places, and others experienced minimal improvement.The performance of the Texas economy stacks up quite well compared to other states. While California added more jobs, part of the reason is relative size (California is about a third larger than Texas in terms of employment), and the rate of growth was slower. Moreover, the Texas expansion covers not only the services industries (which are growing across the nation), but also other industry groups such as manufacturing. Of course, the fact that oil prices are high enough to spur activity in related sectors is helping. In fact, the mining sector, which is dominated by oil and gas activity in Texas, saw a gain in employment of 29,100, a 13.5 percent increase for the year.Looking ahead, Texas is well positioned for long-term growth. It is imperative to continue to provide and enhance the kind of environment where business can thrive (including improvements in infrastructure and education and maintaining competitive incentives, among other key factors). The better we deal with existing challenges and embrace emerging opportunities, the brighter the future looks.
