The problem with this situation is, the union's got 'em by the short hairs, because Harley trades so heavily on its "made in America" reputation. If I were in the market for an American car, I would much prefer one built by robots than Johnny-punchclock union s*****. But if Harley outsourced to another country or relied more heavily on automation, they'd be done for.

Unions in today's society is very much like Socialism. Redistribution of wealth is what it is. Union don't believe in individualism. Collective thinking is the only way for Unions. Unions memberships are so low because the "need" for them has changed in the last 30 yrs. Right- Johnny?

I guess the town famous for manufacturing barbells also manufactures its share of bumbells.

Well I hope you don't live more than 10 miles from me because I've never ridden any farther than that without a chase truck.

"The union voted Wednesday to authorize a strike after rejecting the companyÂ’s contract offer, which would have reduced pay rates for new hires, required employees to pay part of their health insurance premiums and forced pension concessions..."



Greedy corporate bastards!

Why the fuss and concern? Its not like there will be a tee-shirt, concho, seat-less chaps or branded jerky shortage. PLENTY to keep the dealers in bidness.
