Florida congressman asks Obama to fire UAW’s Gettlefinger

Republican Florida congressman Connie Mac said today that the Obama administration should demand UAW President Ron Gettlefinger to step down. Mack said that the UAW is just as responsible for the condition of the American auto industry as former General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner.

She said Gettlefinger should be held responsible for calling strikes and refusing concessions with the Detroit 3, which hurt production in the auto industry.

“If President Obama is willing to fire the CEO of General Motors because of his failures, then he should be even-handed in demanding Ron Gettelfinger”s resignation for his equally egregious failures,” Mack said.

On Monday, President Barack Obama asked Rick Wagoner to resign his position as CEO as a condition to give GM 60 days to come up with restructuring plan while it funds its operations.
