“This is a major victory for these workers, and we’re very gratified that the umpire upheld our strong outsourcing language reached in the 2008 agreements,” UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said in a statement today. “Our American Axle members went on strike for three months in part to win this measure of job security.”
Does "making whole" mean paying a salary to people who no longer work for American Axle? If that's true striking for 3 months was a no-risk, high reward effort. What about making the company whole first?
