    Let’s hope they stay fired and the union doesn’t try to get their jobs back. That would make a mockery of the actual hardworking members.

    It serves them right to get this punishment. I hope the law steps in and prosecutes as well. It's alright to picket or such but things like this carry it too far.

    What do these people think? Because they are on strike stuff like this doesn't count? I'd be interested to know how they performed at work.

    The UAW will certainly threaten and cajole trying to get these thugs' jobs back. That is their M.O., they operate as all gangstaz do.

    As they often say on Cops and LivePD, criminals tend to not be the brightest group in the world.

    Re: Three UAW Members Fired by GM for Making Bomb Threats and Damaging A.GM Vehicle

    The UAW could go a long way with the public to restore SOME confidence in their union by announcing that they will not support members that commit criminal acts against their employer.

    However, since some of the top UAW officials are under criminal investigation, or have been convicted of crimes related to their union position - I doubt that ethics and not supporting criminal acts will be on their mind.

    I hope GM pushes to have criminal charges filed, in addition to terminating the involved employees.

    Re: Three UAW Members Fired by GM for Making Bomb Threats and Damaging A.GM Vehicle

    So did these guys do this because.............

    1) They are despicable idiots.
    2) They are despicable idiots, and thought the UAW would protect them.
    3) They are despicable idiots, and thus too dumb to care.
    4) They thought they wouldn't get caught.
    5) All of the above.


    In closing, a thought to ponder..................

    Has anyone not part of a union, damaged a car or made a bomb threat?

    I'll take 2a... don't know if they're despicable, but they're definitely idiots and likely to find out that their trust was misplaced.

    Kudos to GM for laying down the law. I believe bomb threats are a felony, they should be charged and made an example of.

    I'm sure GM has proof.

    Union better not protect these people.

    most people that "attack" their employer do so on the day they are leaving / are fired and have ZERO intention of ever going back to that employer
    but these people believe they will keep there job ???????

    The UAW can't protect them; I remember one thing my dad saying about the union, "they give you protection above what a normal employee would have, but you steal something, you are on your own" Safe to say this is beyond theft........

    No, obviously a lot of angst and anger for GM treating them so poorly.

    I'll begin by stating that I do not condone violence, so please FBI and CIA do not track me. I'm probably already on their list though

    This development does not surprise me, even some among the capitalist class have been seeing it coming. Nick Hanauer is one such billionaire who saw it coming back in 2014. The state of American workers is dire at best
