Workplace Issues Today: UAW pickets Toyota dealerships

The President of the United Auto Workers, Bob King, announced a new campaign for jobs and justice. King also said that UAW members have begun ‘bannering’ at Toyota dealerships, protesting the closing of a plant in California and the lack of unionization. The protest at the dealerships comes after King announced in June that the UAW would step up its efforts to organize workers at Asian automakers. King also announced a march that will be held in Detroit that will focus on human and civil rights for workers. The march will commemorate a similar one held in 1963, which was organized by the UAW and Martin Luther King Jr.
