    Smoking on the line splits autoworkers By Sharon Terlep, The Detroit News
    The UAW -- from local leaders to its president -- has long protected employee rights to smoke in the workplace.
    UAW President Ron Gettelfinger, a former smoker, defends the practice and says workers are exposed to chemicals, oil mist and other materials just as much as second-hand smoke.
    Gettelfinger said the UAW does support smoking cessation and other health programs, but doesn't support a ban on smoking in assembly plants as a way to lower health care costs.
    'Auto plants are huge complexes and many workers on the jobs are in isolated areas, without a lot of people around them, where it doesn't cause a problem for anyone,' Gettelfinger said last week.
