What the hell is this?

Mother Muckraker is an internal newsletter at the now defunct New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI) in Fremont, CA. The newsletter seeks to debunk the lies and misinformation spread by Toyota and their "company activists"; and more importantly, inform NUMMI union employees about the real reason why Toyota closed their award winning auto plant on April 1, 2010. NUMMI is dead, but Mother Muckraker lives on to serve as a testament to the greedy machinations of Toyota management. Stay tuned for updates.

Rumors

From: 002 2/3/10

Rumor: 3%/$500 Union Dues
The only thing anyone heard was that the union was going to forgo their 1.5% dues payment and we will keep that. Everyone clapped after that announcement. The 3%/$500 rumor was spread by "pro-company activists" who are trying to derail the retention package talks.

Rumor: Lazy Bargaining Committee
If the bargaining committee was so lazy and was trying to screw you over, they would've railroaded us into accepting the first proposal that came across their table months ago. It takes lots of time trying to negotiate a good deal for all of us. We elected the bargaining committee just months ago and we should support them. They are not above criticism. If they are doing something wrong, we should be aware and speak up. But this is not a case of them doing anything wrong. This is politics. The "company activists" are campaigning to force a quick decision. You ever seen con-men try and "close the deal quickly" so they can get their hands on your money? That's what these "company activists" are trying to do.
