And now AutoNation is installing a $200,000 video surveillance system, but of course they could not pay for our medical benefits. For those people who think that unions have no place in the United States of America, are just fools. Eventually, when the unions have all disappeared, who will you run to. LAWYERS HA! HA! HA! For those in the community who supported us while on strike, God Bless you all!

What's "wrong" with the picture is that you stopped working and then walked out on your job, and now expect to be able to come back. For those of us not a part of the "Union Syndicate" - who don't throw tantrums when we don't get our way - the idea of refusing to work but demanding that your position be retained is ridiculous.

Hoq-We know who you are! You are the one's that said why are the black people so upset about sitting on the back of the bus-at least we let them on the bus. You are the one's that say people with money are good and people without money are a drain to society. You are the one's that said what are the slaves complaining about. We give them a place to sleep and eat-what more do they want! Yeah! You and your elitest attitude. People that come in and take the jobs that do not like the union but do it for their own gain. These are the people you admire. Hitler came to power because of people like you!
Keep turning your head and thinking you have all the answers. You understand everything! Get the picture!!

I have nothing but respect for the workers and their families that went out on strike at BMW & Mini of Mountain View. I am the wife of a Machinists Union member and a CSEA Union member myself and have been on the strike line before. It is a hard thing to go through, but very necessary. It is only the uninformed person who would attack a person for standing up for themselves and their fellow workers. We are a country that was found by people who were feed up with being mistreated and had the balls to say enough is enough.
I slaute each and everyone of the mechanics and service writers for saying enough and stick up for themselves.

Thanks to the California School Employee's Association members' kind words of encouragement. It was very difficult to be on strike but very necessary for future contract negotiations. I think the next contract will go much smoother because of the respect that was gained by the strike.
