Who Killed Vincent Chin just finished up on AZN t.v. At the same time, a Civil Rights show is wrapping up on Discovery. I wonder if anyone has thought about finding a way to retry Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz, the way Mr. Delaughter found a way to finally convict Byron De La Beckwith of murdering Medgar Evers.

The whole Vincent Chin case just...leaves me speechless. WTF???
Yet another reason why Detroit sucks.

Does anyone know if the UAW gave an official statment about the Vincent Chin incident? I know a lot of pro-union folks don't like to hear it, but I think the union was complicit in his murder with their "Buy American" campaign, not to mention supporting the Chrysler bailout and and wage/job cuts for which Chin was scapegoated.

At the very least, Chin's killers should have been stripped of their union membership, but I guess that didn't happen, did it?

criminal charges and union membership are two completely unrelated items, why would you think one should have any effect on the other?

Because I think allowing racist murderers to keep their union membership doesn't help American organized labor's already-tarnished reputation.

I just happen to think racism is something that's always plagued American organized labor and it should be addressed. Besides racism, there's also the corruption, counterproductive violence, NIMBY selfishness and political and corporate prostitution. If it makes me "anti-union" or a "scab" to bring it up, then so be it, but I should note that actual anti-union people often exploit the problems of Big Labor to their advantage.

but legally, the union cannot reject membership based on non-labor related issues. If they did, wouldn't it hurt their image even more, (i.e. reinforcing a top-down management style that most unions are against)? Unions don't have real authoritative power over its members.

if they were to be ejected, shouldn't it be their fellow workers who initiate the action? (ideally). And clearly, we both know, the UAW is made up of a very much protectionist bunch, and they won't turn on their own kind in a million years.

That's actually what I had in mind, but you're right, UAW members would never do that. The Teamsters are worse than the UAW, though.
