The amount a Union 'costs' is made up by having cheaper training costs, fewer liability cases, etc.Well, that may be true but the overall cost to the manufacturer is still the same with employees getting less. This is because the Union extracts a significant cut from the employee's pay.
In other words, Ford should model what Tesla does: pay the employees well, and give them healthcare, but don't have a union in the middle.
It's easy to ignore long tail benefits and insurance. You know, until it comes back to bite you.
No, it's totally legal. The plant was unionized before the company changed the widgets they were making. Why would the change in widgets matter?that makes no sense.... threaten to strike because you want a battery plant to pay their staff more. Pretty sure that's not legal.
