The head of the powerful United Auto Workers union said Thursday he wants to meet with President-elect Donald Trump to map a plan to overturn or renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, blamed for allowing high-wage U.S. manufacturing jobs to go to low-wage Mexico.
The buds of a new political alliance were increasingly evident as the president of the UAW — which has historically backed Democratic candidates — vowed to work with the Republican to battle free-trade policies.
UAW President Dennis Williams said free-trade policies have "in many cases destroyed lives and destroyed the middle class," and he's fully aligned with Trump on the matter. He also endorsed Trump's proposed 35% tariff on cars imported from Mexico despite concerns about legality .
"We’re going to do what we have to do as an organization," Williams told reporters. "We’re going to protect our traditional values."http://www.usatoday.com/story/money...ement/93600032/Funny, the UAW endorsed Hillary. Hopefully Donald can make a good deal with the UAW and move the working man over to the GOP side.
