What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

United Auto Workers Union, job security, collective bargaining

As long as the future of the auto industry remains in the hands of Chief Executive Officers of the Big Three there can be no job security.

The time has come for autoworkers to become full participants in the decision making process.

So far, no one has asked the workers employed at the St. Paul Ford Twin Cities Assembly Plant what they think should be done with this plant and the hydro dam.

All talk of job security is a farce unless autoworkers are involved fully in this process.
