I don't want to hear this shit. I just dropped my 18 Chevy ZR2 off at the body shop on Monday. I had a lady turn in front of me and couldn't stop in time. Luckily its only minor, bumper, grill and couple other little things. Hoping it wouldn't take to long. Its dumping snow in the mountains right now and I don't have anything to go play in it.

If its typical union, they will whine and moan about 68 hours a week, then when they go back to their standard schedule, will put out a grievance that their checks are half of what they were on seven day weeks.

The stocks were sold in 2010. The problem being the government sold their shares well below the price needed to get back the true dollar amount owed. They recouped about 35 billion of the 50 billion GM borrowed.
So the gov't just dumped the stock quickly to get cut their loses? Maybe that's what was implied by "common stock" ? Was the gov't owned shares of a higher value?

The government gave GM a bailout of 49.5 billion. The details of what they paid back are a little complex but what it boils down to is that GM "satisfied the terms of their loan agreement" this is not the same as paying bank the money they borrowed.

The "common stock" you are referring to is probably the stock that was agreed to be sold on the open market and not the preferred shares or IPO shares they received at an earlier point in the pay back schedule.

well they control enough shares to have a vote on the board I, and the board runs the company.
How many voters are on the board?

last I knew the UAW pension itself owned a fair percentage of GM.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/ebauer/2019/10/14/gm-pension-funds-and-the-temptations-of-big-pots-of-money/


I write as Trustee of the New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund), the third largest public pension fund in the United States, which holds and invests the assets of the New York State and Local Retirement System on behalf of its 1.1 million members, retirees and beneficiaries. The Fund is a long-time investor in General Motors Company (GM or the Company) and as of June 30, 2019 held more than 3.8 million shares of the Company’s stock.


Specifically, I am writing to express my concern regarding the current labor dispute between GM and the United Auto Workers which has resulted in approximately 46,000 employees striking at more than thirty Company factories in several different states, including New York State. As an investor, I am concerned about reports estimating the Company’s lost earnings between $50 and $100 million per day during the strike. The last prolonged strike at GM, lasting 54 days in 1998, reportedly cost the Company $2 billion and two percent of market share. Even though recent reports indicate the Company and the UAW are making progress in their negotiations, it is conceivable this strike could similarly cause significant losses unless a resolution is quickly reached.

I believe the effective management of human capital is critical to the success of GM and its ability to create long-term shareholder value. Fair wages and benefits for workers and a more U.S.-based work force are important matters to consider in fostering positive labor relations.

so uh, nobody that went on strike is responsible for the parts shortages, that's what you want someone to say?
It's all managements fault right?

you must be a union steward because you're trying awfully hard to hold the UAW blameless.


well what happens when the UAW IS the management?

A friend of mine is a cop in NYC. After 20 years (in his mid 40s), he can retire with around 90K/yr plus healthcare. Sure that's sustainable :laughing:
