Lexington Herald-Leader: UAW president makes surprise visit to Kentucky Toyota workers. | Opinion
By LINDA BLACKFORD
Shawn Fain, president of the United Auto Workers union, listened Monday to a fiery speech by United Mine Workers President Cecil Roberts on the importance of unity in organizing for better pay and working conditions. Then he headed up I-75 to preach the same to Toyota workers at the company’s plant in Georgetown, a non-union shop just over an hour away from the unionized Ford Kentucky Truck Plant that proved instrumental in the UAW’s efforts to reach historic agreements with some of the biggest car makers in the world.
