OK don't everybody jump on me for this I know it wont happen, but in a prefect world. The union workers figure out that their future is a stake. They get together with some investor and the workers buy the company. Kinda like the Eastern Airline employees tried (course Frank Lorenzo shot that down, nice what you can do when you own a judge).
Then take the company forward. The guys on the line know how to improve the product, and it they had a stake in the outcome, we would see improvements across the line.
Look what happened to quality at Harley Davidson, when the Davidson family came back into the picture. There where little changes, like a guy on the assembly line had an idea for improving a wire connection, and nobody had asked him.
Like I say, nice idea, but it's probably not going to happen. Thinking I'd better buy my 09 Challenger soon if I want one.
