One more reason to break up the UAW

Autoworkers Union Keeps $6 Million Golf Course for Members at $33 Million Lakeside Retreat

“Even as the industry struggles with massive losses, the UAW brass continue to own and operate a $33 million lakeside retreat in Michigan, complete with a $6.4 million designer golf course. And it’s costing them millions each year.”

 

“But the Black Lake club and retreat, which are among the union’s biggest fixed assets, have lost $23 million in the past five years alone, a heavy albatross around the union’s neck as it tries to manage a multibillion-dollar pension plan crisis.”

And the UAW  is a heavy albatross around the auto companies’ necks.  And the bailout is a heavy albatross around the taxpayers’ necks.
