UAW president Bob King and Union Members Picket In Front Of Toyota Dealers
When newly-elected UAW president Bob King reached office, he was quick to organize past and present UAW members to picket in front of Toyota dealers nationwide, probably because they had nothing better to do.
King and his fellow union members have started their picketing, which, according to Automotive News, stretches nationwide though they are mostly in California and New York.
“We’re going to show these corporations that if they are unjust to our members that they are going to pay a price,” King previously said. “It’s a better business decision to work with us than treat people unfairly.”
King has told his fellow people that they need to adopt a Toyota dealership, which has had cars ranked as the most American made, and picket in front of them. California is the main focus due to a joint plant previously held by Toyota and General Motors. King wants to pressure the Japanese automaker into reopening the plant, despite the fact that they have already decided to move production to Mississippi, another American plant, though not unionized.
In addition to Toyota, King and his rowdy bunch hope to draw attention on the importance of unionizing all automakers and suppliers in the United States.
