Graham gets credit for Lordstown success, not blame for GM failures



Published: Sun, December 5, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m.

In response to the ranting of a writer from Newton Falls last Sunday, take off your blinders and look around at our area.

While all around Ohio and the United States factories were closing or cutting back, our area was increasing employment at Lordstown. GM added about 900 new jobs and we have a new product that is a great quality car produced at a cost that allows GM to make money. The UAW, under Jim Graham’s leadership, has improved productivity and quality over the last six to seven years.

For the last 10 years, the membership at Lordstown has taken concessions by a membership vote. We are not management where changes are pushed down to you nor did we ignore the fact that GM was losing market share and in turn profits.

We agreed to no raises, no cost of living increase, reduced our holidays, changed retiree health care from GM to the UAW Health Care Trust for all retirees (which saved $20 billion for GM), agreed to a new hiring rate with a changed benefit structure for all new hires, changed work rules, combined skilled trades and the list goes on and on.

The writer blamed Jim Graham for the demise of Lordstown, but we are still here and stronger.

A bankruptcy is done by the directors of a company, not by a union president. Companies and individuals who cannot pay the debt they have created have a legal right to file for protection under the law to protect themselves from ceasing to exist. GM did all of that. But whether we agree or disagree with that action, it wasn’t due to Jim Graham’s leadership.

If you are a Delphi salary or hourly retiree, you have a right to be upset. You got shafted, but it wasn’t because of Jim Graham. Jim Graham has been involved with trying to help the Delphi situation for those of you who lost out because of the bankruptcy.

Jim Graham would be good for our area. He has led our union through financial times.

If you’re not working, your two hours per month union dues don’t come into the union. Jim has cut activities of our union, reduced the amount of union paid time off, laid off some of the secretaries and managed our treasury very well. He gets involved in problems and finds solutions to tough questions. He manages a large elected group of unionists, manages membership of 3,200 and growing, is involved with the running of our plant through Key 4 (Plant Manager, Comptroller, President of the UAW and Shop Chairman of the UAW) processes to upgrade the operations of the Lordstown Assembly plant.

Jim brings all that experience and leadership ability to the mayor’s office.

Bill Bowers, Warren

Bowers is retiree chairman of United Auto Workers Union Region 2B.

Fair !!!! You did not work for GM or belong to the UAW . You have no clam on them. You did not join the UAW when you could have. When you worked for Delphi you did everything you could do to hurt the union and workers . WHAT PART OF THAT DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND . Get over it and be thankful for what you got.
VOTE FOR GRAHAM .

@FairandEqual
I have said it before what happen to you and other Delphi workers was wrong. But it is also water under the bridge its done. No one can or will change it. You need to move on if for no other reason but your health.
Its not good for anyone to stay bitter and anger like you are. I am guessing you are a older man to be this pissed off about your retirement. Dont ruin what is left of your life being anger at GM go enjoy what time you have left with your family.

FairandEqual,I'm all for people like you. So many give up their fight for something when they get worn down and marginalized. You're fight is in my opinion just and I hope you keep up the good fight and that you and the other salaried retirees get what you'll deserve and worked for,soon. Merry Christmas.

"The writer blamed Jim Graham for the demise of Lordstown, but we are still here and stronger."

Here's reality: GM was the wost run corporation of the last 25 years in this country. They were given 50 billion dollars before they filed bankruptcy. They were given special treatment during bankruptcy that no other companies receive. This includes the little known 45 BILLION dollar tax breaks over the next few years IN ADDITION to 50 Billion in taxpayer money. Companies look real good to invetsors when they know they will not be paying income tax for the foreseeable future.
These are the reasons GM is still here, NOT due to anybody who worked there or in affiliation with them.

GM had nothing to do with you or your company .You and you counterparts cried and cried that GM was holding you back so they let you go .Now you want them to pay for your failure . And it was people like you who caused the failure. You just took and took for years and when the pot ran dry you want somebody you did not work for at the time to bail you out . You need to get over and go buy a GM car :)

You are a HYPOCRITE and a fool.

Listen to YOUR own words.

"Now you want them to pay for your failure . And it was people like you who caused the failure. You just took and took for years and when the pot ran dry you want somebody you did not work for at the time to bail you out . You need to get over and go buy a GM car :)"

This is the EXACT thing that you and your fool co-workers demanded and got from the Federal Government and by extension the American Taxpayers.

Tyler Durden is right on the money with the numbers that he has posted,he just failed to mention the sweatheart deal that only applies to that overpriced golf cart the Volt, $7,500 of aid to GM for eack golf cart sold.Ford cars dont get this deal of $7,500 for each car sold do they, Ford did not get $45,000,000,000 in tax breaks did they. Ford did not get $50,000,000,000 from the Federal Government to stay afloat did they.Ford did not get $6,700,000,000 in TARP money did they. The answer to those questions is HE!! NO.

Why is it that you demand the taxpayers pay for YOUR failures, but not anyone elses.

HYPOCRITE

Buy a car from a real American Company.

Buy a FORD.

Silence....The money was LOANED to GM and is being paid back. FnE isn't asking for a loan, he is a cry baby that wants a company other than the one he worked for to GIVE him money. See if you can figure out the difference.

Let him get the money from Delphi. They didn't go out of business they just moved his job overseas to take advantage of the tax breaks that bush/cheney and the republicans gave them to do so.

You stated "The money was LOANED to GM and is being paid back".
Now lets put some facts on the table...
The LOAN was the tarp money which totaled $6,700,000,000 , of which every penny was paid back.It should be noted that the money that was PAID BACK , (money that was used to pay back the loan did in fact come from the Government )in essence came from the money that was freed up by the Government(greatest shell game in financial history) taking over and above 60% OWNERSHIP of Government Motors, That only cost the taxpayers $50,000,000,000. Now with the recent sale of stocks the Government was to get back $22,000,000,000 but for some reason Government Motors failed to pay back its initial payment in full. So they are still in debt to the taxpayers for well over $28,000,000,000.
Now for the Taxpayers to get back the rest of its money and reduce the Governments ownership in GM to nothing, the stock price will have to more the double from where it is selling for today. And that is NOT going to happen when you look at the line up of the cars that they plan on selling in the short term(next four years), and you just cant look at it in direct dollars either, what do you think the interest payment for the $50,000,000,000 loan that we had to take from CHINA comes to. Granted there was no DIRECT LOAN for this, but it is after all the greatest SHELL game ever that the Government is pulling(we still had to go begging to China for money ) over every ones eyes.
Which brings us to the last point. WHY is it that GM gets these $45,000,000,000 breaks in its taxes and other Companies don't get them. These breaks are in fact a free gift of cash assets that every other Company would have to pay to operate in America.Why can't Ford get these tax breaks, why can't Honda of America get these tax breaks.
WHY JUST GM
ANSWER THAT

Review ALL the candidates for mayor voters

Not to smite him but Jim Graham has been no savior to GM like the Bill Bowers character is lying that he is and or was.

That honor " Savior to GM " goes to president Obama and the Democrat and Independent party members in the house and senate,.. Republicans wanted to kill GM.

Not being one to pander for popularity by merely saying what sounds good. Personally I've buy American vehicles a while back. Solely because they've been made poorly and were over priced compared to other better quality / value performance vehicles available.

I hope them the best in resurrection because they employ fellow Americans. To wit to be fair I'm re-looking at what they're marketing now.

But I'm a value buyer and not a sucker merely for a mere " home grown " slogan. So IF I ever buy another GM, Ford or Chrysler product ever again.

It won't be based on a slogan nor placing their interest of profit before that of my demand for quality, value and reliability.

Silence.... You claim the rest of the loan wont be paid back. I'll bet you're one of the people that claimed none of it would be paid back. Those people were wrong then just like you're wrong now.

So GM still owes 28 billion to the American tax payer. That's how much bush/cheney spent in Iraq every two and a half months for six and a half years. The GM money will be paid.

dick cheney saw his halliburton stock go up 3000% because of the Iraq investment. What did anyone else get?

At Least the loan to GM saved millions of jobs and those workers are paying taxes. Anyone who thinks that saving the American auto industry with a loan that will be paid back was a bad idea is an idiot.

Woody....neither Clinton or Obama ever received a dime from halliburton. On the other hand cheney received 10's of millions. See if you can figure out the difference.

The contracts from Clinton were next to nothing compared to the billions given by cheney and the contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan were already in place in two wars that are winding down when Obama took office. It's obvious that the end of the war is not the time to change contractors. Nice try though.

Fight your fight any way you like but to manifest it in the action of buying a foreign car well..... you're just screwed up... making the company weaker that is paying the salary of many in the valley by buying foreign goods is not going to help your plight at all. sounds like sour grapes to me.

The UAW priced GM cars out of the market from a labor standpoint, they cut corners elsewhere and sales suffered because they produced an inferior product. Now, instead of restructuring to an efficient cost model, taxpayers are bailing out these contracts.

To call that "success" is nonsense.

GM still has the same flawed business model - the one the UAW has fought to protect. The only difference is we're all paying for it even if we never buy one of their crappy cars.

29TheCloser(14 comments)posted 3 years, 7 months ago

Fair. It's not about the content of the car. It's about the Nameplate. When you buy anything with an American namplate the bulk of the money stays in America which is why it is NOT good to buy a foreign nameplated product thats built here in the US. Your purchase pays the US worker a little bit of money for the labor and the vast majority of your loan goes out of our system and into the economy of the foreign namplated product weakening the US economy and stregthening that of the foreign economy but I'm sure you knew that. I can see you're ticked about Delphi and I don't blame you and believe it or not I support you. I just don't share your view of boycotting GM's products. I want to see them succeeed. You will have more of a chance of getting what you want if they succeed rather than fail. That's just common sense. There are other ways to make your point. Just my humble opinion, Sir/ma'am.

OK Fair. I'm going to try this one more time. I have the distinct feeling this is a futile attempt but I'm going to try none the less. BUY AMERICAN....PERIOD! That is my point, K? Are you too thick to grasp the concept? ALWAYS BUY AMERICAN NAMEPLATED PRODUCTS! You do know what an American nameplated product is I hope because that concept is key to you understanding my point. I know what the foreign material content is and was VERY well. That has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! That's not the point. Never ever EVER say the Buy American concept is gone. It's gone if you don't understand why it is detrimental to the US economy, the US workers and ultimately US businesses. Why is it so hard for you to understand simple economics? I've read your posts. You sound like a very bitter, vindictive person. Things did't go your way and you're letting your bitterness cloud your vision. Delphi salaried got a raw deal. The fight isn't over. I hope they can come out on top and be treated fairly. I want to see GM suceed for many reasons and you should too. You think you have it rough? Go down south where the mere mention of a union will get your a$$ kicked. At least you have something to fight for. Those folks never had and never will and before you start, I was on both sides of the fence for many years, union AND salary. Get your head out of the sand, suck it up, fight your fight but because you are hurting don't wish it on your neighbor, the valley or it's businesses. I'm done with you.

i do know that if wanted a union, you could have gone through the process with the department of labor. a vote would have taken place. the salary employees at gm and delphi, before it was split off from gm decided they were better off without the union.

how's that working for you?

it's pretty pathtic that a union you didn't want; and now you want that same union to help you.

in conclusion. it is terrible what delphi has done to their retirees. if the wonderful democratic politicians that have run the mahoning vallet for so many years actually cared, they would do something.

GM started November with 9,000 Cruzes and had sold about 8,000 by the end of the month, Jim Bunnell, who manages GM's dealer network and sales support, said last week on a conference call with reporters and analysts. That's on target with GM's launch plan, Bunnell said.

It's funny how people always say "their tax payers money" when once the government receives this money to run this country, the taxpayer really has no say in how the government spends it, other than via their elected officials. Once we pay our taxes it's not our money anymore, it's the governments money and we all know their not the best at managing it the way we would like to. The government raids SS funds to use for other purposes other than SS, gives money to illegal aliens who've been living here for years, uses money for a war that we cannot possibly win, now sending millions to Afganistan, some of which is being stolen by corrupt officials, etc., etc. Well, in a way they are doing what GM did in years past. Management destroyed this compaany by making decisions that would eventually lead to its demise, buying Saab, Hummer, and also investing in Fiat, when it already had 6 brands which where making lackluster cars in the first place that could not compete. They totally destroyed Saturn by not re-investing in it to improve the foothold they had in the 90's in the small car market but instead let the quality slip behind the Asian manufactureres who steadily improved their products to American satisfaction. Then they sold or mortgaged everything when money got tight to the point there was nothing left worth anything. The union failed to realize this and demanded perks based on false sense of prosperity that could not be sustained. Many didn't know the sad state GM had fallen into. Rick Wagoneer was making millions of dollars during times when GM was loosing billions and I've never heard anyone really point this out. The auto czar said this was the worst run company he'd ever seen in his career. Now that management has been tossed and a new team has been brought in, things are on the upswing. They are making good looking quality cars now that attract people to showrooms. I am a car guy and I really like what I see so this time the government did a good thing to intervene which brought about a dramatic change in the old boy corporate structure.
