We've had this argument every time a post even come close to mentioning unions. This complaint comes from French car parts maker Valeo's Chief Executive, who's first move when he took over Valeo was to shut plants and shift workforce to low-cost countries, 60 factories shut or sold in four years. I do see the slow-moving unions as a major stumbling block for U.S. automakers, but don't like to hear the only reason they are "archaic" is because it's easier to shut plants and shift work. They're archaic because they are unbending and foreign manufacturers that build vehicles in the U.S. proved that employees can be satisfied at work without the unions behind them.
