If you thought that the UNION agenda was overblown and could not understand why the big hoopla, then look at how the Unions, other that teachers unions, operate.
Then, follow the logic about all the privileges that the unions have and then realize that this is NOT about the TEACHERS, it’s about the Precedent.
You see, this is to set up a parallel international policy – another word for a Global Government. The companies, after all have to have “standard policies” to follow. What we do in Italy, should be the same as we do in the US, therefore we have to have a “standard” policy.
This is the problem with these INTERNATIONAL companies. They set up their own LAWS. This is how they started a parallel government. The parallel government is set up through POLICIES. They are backed by the individual countries governments, because if they don’t the companies will pull out or destroy THAT countries industry — whatever industry that that country thrives in.
Once TOTALLY implamented, then the curtain can be drawn and they can say, well— see — there’s NOTHING to be scared of — YOU have been living UNDER a Global Government anyway, we’re just now coming out and think we can make a real go of it.” “We think that it will be best for everyone if we just come together in peace, love, harmony and industry. ”
The policies will be created by the “GLOBAL COMPANIES” and the official GLOBAL LAWS will then be officiated through the UN.
Aren’t they ALREADY doing that?
Libya – The US president was on vacation and never addressed Congress – nothing. The UN says jump, the US says – how high?
UAW seeks strong global ties with Fiat unions
DETROIT – The United Auto Workers plans to meet in June with the Italian unions that represent workers of Fiat, which runs Chrysler Group, as part of an effort to strengthen their ties.
<this is about GLOBAL GOVERNANCE and the unions are at the forefront cearating policies. >
“They’re eager to sit down and talk with us,” UAW Vice President General Holiefield, who heads the union’s Chrysler department, said in an interview.
Fiat, based in Turin, Italy, plans to invest $28.3 billion revamping its domestic plants in return for having union workers put in more hours, take shorter breaks and risk having pay withheld for persistent absenteeism. Current negotiations over the plan at Fiat’s Grugliasco plant are “worrisome,” Labor Minister Maurizio Sacconi said.
UAW President Bob King is seeking to forge stronger relationships with unions representing workers at the overseas operations of Chrysler, Ford and General Motors Co. and organize foreign automakers factories in the United States.
“We’re building a broad international coalition,” King said Tuesday during the UAW’s bargaining convention in Detroit.
The UAW met with trade union leaders from Ford’s global operations six months ago and is seeking a framework for an agreement to protect workers’ rights around the world, King said. The UAW’s GM department is working on a similar effort and had its first meeting a month ago, he said.
It’s “about having a unified labor movement globally so they don’t pit workers in Germany against workers in England against workers in Brazil against workers in the United States,” King said.
Holiefield, who said he has met with Italian labor officials in the past, declined to say which of Fiat’s unions the UAW plans to speak with in June.
“Labor’s pain is always felt amongst the laborer,” Holiefield said at the UAW convention in Detroit. “If there’s anything we can do to sit down and get that message across to whomever it is, we thoroughly believe that we can work our way through anything.”
The UAW hopes to build stronger relationships with Fiat’s unions so they can work together and help “the companies that we all represent be that much more prosperous,” he said.
The efforts could help Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer of both Fiat and Chrysler, Holiefield said.
“We’re not there to beat him up or anything but to provide a forum so he can hear labor and that we can find common ground,” he said.
A Chrysler spokeswoman declined to comment.
