    UAW workers draw sharp criticism following two-day strike - By Fred O. Williams, Buffalo News NY
    “No one on this plan[e]t can get a UAW job, unless you have a family member working already,” another anonymous Web writer said.

    Whether it has any basis, the anonymous griping is widespread enough to show a broad vein of resentment against the UAW — surprising in a union stronghold like Buffalo.

    The barbs were thrown on the day that the UAW walked out of GM plants around the country, including the 1,500-job Town of Tonawanda Engine Plant.

    Union members locally are set to vote today on the tentative agreement that ended the strike. The four-year deal sets wages at $28 an hour and includes $13,056 in additional pay and benefits, the UAW estimates.
