re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I wonder if we could all go to Toledo, and pick up building the Wranglers ourselves?


Ever see the movie, Gung Ho? Remember the end of the movie when they all pitch in, and build the Assan Motors cars?

Mine was only in that status for 1 day before being off on a slow train being pulled by a snail... But I have seen some that are taking 10 days or more.

Some companies in other industries do spend a huge amount of time and money training non-union (typically management) employees to do the jobs of the union employees in the case of a strike. I have no idea if any of the auto companies are like that, but it's certainly not out of the question. I understand the nature of collective bargaining is adversarial, but it sure would be nice if these kinds of things weren't as stressful for all involved. In some instances I've heard of union employees working for six or more months under the terms of the expired previous contracts, but obviously that happens when the two sides are closer to each other in the terms being negotiated.

Now the speculation on what this means to me... if there's a strike the day before the theoretical ordering for Xtreme Purple is to open, I wonder if that delays the availability to order...

With all this on the horizon I'm hoping you tucked away a good chunk of that time and a half and double time overtime, ArcherAce.

All kidding aside, this could mean exactly that for some of us, particularly in Canada. People stating that because of the long delays already, saying they have to renegotiate after 90 days.

now with a strike, this will really set things back.

This is why car manufacturers build in other countries. Unions are a blight on this nation.
