United Auto Employees, Sen. Ron Johnson disagree on Oshkosh postal car manufacturing dispute | WUWM 89.7 FM

The controversy over whether or not to construct a brand new fleet of postal automobiles in Wisconsin or in South Carolina has taken one other flip.

On WHBY radio in Appleton Thursday, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson questioned the motives of union leaders who’re pressuring the Oshkosh Company to tug again from manufacturing preparations in South Carolina, and as an alternative make as much as 165,000 postal service supply automobiles on the firm plant in Oshkosh.

Johnson stated he wonders if the United Auto Employees (UAW) and President Joe Biden are attempting to kill the postal service contract with the corporate, “As a result of they do not consider they will unionize a plant in South Carolina. They’re going to have the ability to attempt. However apparently, they do not suppose they will. So, they’d somewhat kill the contract for the Oshkosh Company, and that will harm their union employees in Oshkosh,” Johnson claimed.

On a later digital press name with the information media, organized by the Wisconsin Democratic Celebration, the president of the UAW native at Oshkosh, Bob Lynk, responded to Johnson: “About making an attempt to tank a contract, it has zero to do with that. We would like Oshkosh to have the work.”

The UAW stated it is keen to fulfill with the senator, who made headlines a number of days in the past for declining to push Oshkosh Company to construct the automobiles in Oshkosh, saying, “It’s not like we don’t have enough jobs here in Wisconsin.”

WHBY reported that the senator stated he’d meet with UAW this weekend.
