Delphi Bankruptcy and GM Restructuring:
A Call for Bold New Independent Strategy from All of Labor

Workers are wondering, "What is there to negotiate?" After years of concessions and recent unprecedented cuts in Health Care, will GM shrink it's workforce by 30,000 jobs? If the labor leaders view the new global economy as one in which the workers' destiny is tied to the health and well being of this or that corporation, then the best we can expect from our union representatives is to negotiate our demise through buyouts and severance packages. If this is the posture of organized labor, then workers must create their own independent action and independent organizations in which the interests of the corporation are diametrically opposed to the interests of the workers and society as a whole -- and where no attack will go unanswered.
