    Re: Federal Oversight of the UAW a Possibilty

    UAW and The Three both need adult supervision. Bennies have gotten out of control, they both act like they're government bodies. Remember what "a government job" means in slang. The golden healthcare bennies, overpayment per skill level and output, executive pay and bennies out the wazoo, they all act like they're government agencies with a guaranteed 3% budget increase plus plus. In federal parlance, a "budget cut" is any increase less than three percent.

    So are there federal grown-ups capable of bringing some measure of sanity, honesty, and reality to this situation? Get yer popcorn, get it now!

    "When the UAW goes on strike and the workers are making — I think it was $275 per week... And what does the leadership get? Bottles of booze worth $1,300. Lavish steak dinners. They are literally using the workers' money to live so high on the hog," Schneider said. "The leadership is stealing their money. That's unconscionable."

    This article is truly damning in many aspects.

    Sadly this is what so often happens when they can't control or police themselves and then end up with a situation like the UAW is in right now. The &@%# Gov't thinks it needs to step in and take over to "fix" the situation. Things only go from bad to worse in most all of these situations. The Gov't intervening is not the solution.

    you think a GOVERNMENT worker is going to "reign in" lavish UNION pay scales ?
    if anything I would expect the current govt to make them better so there's looks less outlandish

    I'm pro-union, but this is becoming the issue with unions today, the leadership only cares about lining their pockets at the expense of the dues paying members. It was same with the teachers union in my hometown, when the district was facing a huge deficit, the union leadership refused a pay freeze and as a result over 200 teachers were furloughed.

    While I agree with you, the line of thought led me to ask "who would I feel comfortable with to oversee the union" and I can't come up with an answer. The only thing I can think of is you need someone with a reputation from an honest company to step in. Maybe a retired CEO of a huge company. But they'd literally need to clean shop and get rid of just about the entire UAW management structure.

    The whole auto union industry is rotten. The only way to clean it up is to completely dissolve the UAW.

    I have a funny feeling that would trigger a new bunch of premature retirements. Don't ask me why.

    The Federal prosecutor is now reporting that the administrative charges filed against Gary Jones by the UAW contained information withheld from the criminal investigators.

    I suspect the UAW has a lot to hide, and it will continue to be embarrassing and potentially criminal.
