"The relocation of manufacturing and product development to other locations will improve the Company's regional manufacturing performance, maximize utilization of equipment and resources and achieve significant cost savings." according to Continental's spokeswoman Kathryn Blackwell. "The Huntsville facility has the highest manufacturing costs of any Continental automotive electronics plant in North America and we were unsuccessful in reducing these costs through labor negotiations with United Automobile Workers (UAW) union and other cost reductions in capital, equipment, overhead and expenses."
I guess those Huntsville worker weren't willing to match the costs of Continental's operations in Mexico. Opps, I mean North America. Maybe they can consolidate with their Texas plant. That's almost Mexico.
"The company said American troops put an end to military production by VW on April 11, 1945, and liberated the laborers."
Funny they didn't mention the need for Vw leadership to be liberated.
Maybe the best solution would be for investigative local Media to travel to the construction site to see if they can discredit union claims.....or validate them.
^^^ And thanks for your insight DR. Z ^^^
Hmm, I'm confused. I thought part of the deal for bringing Vw to Chatta' was that Sen. Corker would show them how to hire undocumented(illegal) workers. Geez, I hope this doesn't mean more taxpayer money will have to be given to Vw to offset the cost of hiring more American workers.
