Marines driven out of UAW

Marines driven out of UAW lot

As many of you know, I am was a big supporter of the UAW and Unions. But after I read this article in Sundays Detroit News my support for them has dropped to almost zero.

The UAW has long allows Marine reservists to park at the Solidarity House in downtown Detroit if they were working at the Base on Jefferson Ave.

The Marine Corps motto means "always faithful," but the union says some reservists working out of a base on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit have been decidedly unfaithful to their fellow
Americans by driving import cars and trucks.

So the UAW International will no longer allow members of the 1st Battalion 24th Marines to
park at Solidarity House if they are driving foreign cars or displaying pro-President Bush bumper stickers

This just sickens me and why should they just exclude Marines. I think they should extend these same rules to their own UAW members working at the assembly plants as they have to know not every one went out and voted for Kerry.

You can contact the UAW: (They have no email addresses)
Here is a list of UAW Officers
