Strike? Ahem, Ron, we hate to break it to you, but your side of the "two-way street" has been blown-up for good. You can do the rabble rouser routine for the short-term gratification it brings from your back-slapping membership, but it's all just sound and fury signifying absolutely nothing.
The question before you and your membership, despite your out-of-touch posturing and grandstanding is this: Would you rather have jobs with reduced wages and benefits - or no jobs at all? It's a clear-cut decision that seems to be totally lost on you, Ron, but you and your membership better get religion real soon, or it's going to get much worse - with no "better" any where to be seen.
As a recent GM retiree I could not agree more with the "Autoextremist" http://www.autoextremist.com/page6.shtml
I hope that Mr. Gettlefinger is only making noise for the benefit of the Union kool aid drinkers or all of us GM employees and retirees are in big trouble!
