It's Handshake Day

Today is the opening handshakes for the UAW / Ford Contract talks, talks offically begin today.

The contract runs out September 13th, lets hope there is a good settlement without a strike by then.

What is really pissing me off is that the Auto Manufacturers are really playing to the press and trying to negotiate things there way by talking big talk in the press, putting a lot of blame on the auto workers and there "big" pay. Of course they never mention the horrible decisions that the executives make and the fact they are not designing cars that people want.

The UAW refuses to play the contract talks out in the press and has kept quite on everything.
