I work for a Truck Manufacturing plant (Freightliner) and we are Union, but quality checks on these trucks are numerous through out the plant. So not sure what Union labor has to do with it. Geeze, do they not inspect all this before they leave the factory??

Delphi Automotive's subsidiary in South Korea provides GM with the brake assembly for the Sonic.

The missing brake pads--part of a subassembly of components--fell off before the cars were assembled and had remained unnoticed at the bottom of containers being shipped to the Orion Township, Mich., factory, said GM spokesman Alan Adler.




NO UNION JOBS THERE! GM retired after 30+ yrs.

I've got no love for unions, IBEW spiked my tires for speaking out about lazy union shills doing nothing and getting paid for it, screwing the company. Organized criminals.

OK....cheap Asian labor then, because it's cheaper to do it over there.

yeah I will give you that. Unions do protect sorry a$$es. I am not a member, and I am over about 20 employees and I see it everyday. People laying out and on the verge of being fired and the Union steps in and keeps them there job. What ever happened to go to work, do a good job, get good pay, and go home?? Guess thats why jobs keep moving south of the border.
