Regarding Paul Ingrassia’s article in the February 7th Wall Street Journal issue, “The United Auto Workers Test Drive a New Model”. Most believe that not much will change except some inner provisions under Mr. King, the new President of the UAW. It appears Mr. Richard Bensinger has the ‘integrity and willingness to challenge orthodoxy”, to put unionism into a new version. Doing away with the Warner Act of 1935, and allowing the workers to form their own Company unions would improve relationships and eliminate adversaries of total opposition, allowing workers and management to grow their companies, giving their workers protection and longevity for their jobs. No more ‘rust belts’.
The Kings, of the trade unions, could lead the industry associations of companies for the exchange of ideas, information and general interest.
