  1. Es aquí otro punto en el que el sindicalismo tiene mucho que ofrecer, más allá de defensa de derechos: la creación de alternativas económicas. Históricamente los sindicatos han creado cooperativas y la recuperación de empresas ha sido parte de su estrategia en los momentos de mayor fuerza sindical, además del control sindical de la contratación, como herramientas para hacer frente al desempleo y a las listas negras.

  3. El sindicalismo de acción o de representación asamblearia, que está en los orígenes y fundamentos del movimiento obrero, desaparece del horizonte de la llamada lucha de clases. Queda fuera de la ley. Las opciones de plantear una alternativa total al capitalismo han desaparecido de los programas y de los debates obreros. El movimiento obrero nacido en la lucha de clases ha muerto. Su objetivo, incluso en medio de la peor de las crisis, ya no es cambiar el sistema es mejorarlo. Aprovechar su creación de riqueza y participar en el reparto. Algo así como decir: Otro capitalismo es posible.

  7. HP: Hyundai followed Toyota’s model of building ‘em where ya’ sell ‘em. How has manufacturing in the U.S. changed Hyundai?

    Ferrara: The reality is that unions in Korea are pretty tough. They really drove some of the activity to move production out. (Korea) had a number of years in the mid-‘90s where we had an annual strike. And you also had issues with currency fluctuations (and) a realization that we needed to get closer to the customers. We have design centers globally now — in Germany and here in Irvine as well as Korea. And once you get factories then you have quality teams in factories and . . . more people in the local market feeding back to corporate in Korea.

  9. German law gives labor representatives half the seats on the Volkswagen’s supervisory board, where some members have raised concerns about the Chattanooga plant being alone among the company’s large factories without formal labor representation. The UAW vote would be the first step toward creating a German-style “works council” at the plant which represents both blue and white collar employees on issues such as working conditions and plant efficiency, but not wages or benefits.
