Is Toyota Trying to Break NUMMI Union?

Toyota is threatening to close the NUMMI auto plant in Fremont in a move that could be designed to extract big concessions from the United Auto Workers union or break its hold on the factory completely. Toyota is well-known as a non-union employer, and doesn’t appear anxious to keep the union-operated NUMMI plant open now that General Motors has dropped out of the partnership because of bankruptcy. In fact, General Motors’ involvement in the plant was the reason why New United Motors Manufacturing Inc. was unionized in the first place.
