“It’s going to be tough. It’s not going to be an easy bargaining. But they’re going to get a chance to vote on who they think will make the best decisions. And more than any other thing, it’s going to be a democratic choice … one member, one vote.”–Arthur Wheaton, a Cornell University labor professor, on the UAW’s 2023 contract negotiations and the constitutional convention held last week.

“They are having just a whale of a time to fill those jobs. It’s taking them months and months and months. … It’s affected these auto plants in ways that would have been inconceivably difficult to imagine just five years ago.”–
Larry P. Vellequette, Automotive News reporter, on small-town automotive plants’ struggle to find workers in 2022.

“We’re putting together checklists. [When] the rules go into place, here’s the dealer checklist on everything they need to start doing right now. Who they need to contact. Who do they need to train?

And then, how do we record-keep this?”–Shannon Robertson, executive director of the Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals, on how the group is helping dealerships prepare for new proposed Federal Trade Commission rules.
