After General Motors workers went on strike a few weeks ago, I was optimistic that GM would stick it to the unions the way I recommended in my piece on Fixing the American Auto Industry. They didn’t. Today, UAW workers went on strike against Chrysler, providing another opportunity to break the UAW. I’ve always had a soft-spot for Chrysler vehicles, much more so than for Ford or GM cars, and I’m hopeful that Chrysler’s new owners—Cerberus Capital Management—call the UAW’s bluff and put them in their place. As a privately owned company, Chrysler is in the best position to change things for the better. Take the opportunity, take the risk, and run with it.
