Collective bargaining in the auto industry featured in new POJ ad

The Protect Our Jobs campaign has released another ad today. "Rescue" is a 30-second spot featuring an auto worker discussing how collective bargaining saved the auto industry.

The UAW and auto executives used collective bargaining in some very tough times to make historic changes in production, pay and benefits. Since 2009, productivity has increased, loans given by the government have been repaid ahead of schedule and sales have soared because of collective bargaining.

As school employees, we use collective bargaining to keep class sizes small, provide needed resources for students and secure a safe and productive working environment. This new ad is another example of how collective bargaining helps all workers--union or not.
