Here is what a UAW contract looks like. It weighs 22 pounds. It no wonder the big three can not compete in the global market. Honda and Toyota don't have to deal with that kind of crap. It would take a team of lawyers just to understand this document.
Ever wondered what a UAW contract looks like? Here is all 22 pounds of it (in this case, Ford’s 2,215 page 2007 master contract; Coke can is for scale and because I was thirsty).
I’ll tell you this much, those 2,215 pages don’t include much regarding efficiency and competitiveness. What you’ll find are hundreds of rules, regulations, and letters of understanding that have hamstrung the auto companies for years. (Excerpted)from laborpains.org
If you’d like to read the contracts for yourself, here they are:

Fascinating! Good stuff. I've added you to my blog list.
Nice blog Redneck. You're on my list as well.
Thanks for illuminating this issue. Clearly you have some expertise. I updated my post with a link to yours.
I like this place!
What fine work! Thanks for coming by and leaving a link for me. I'm adding you to my blogroll.
I don't know about you, but the hits on the UAW pieces just keep coming. Lot of people are very interested.
It would be nice to find a picture of the stack of government regulations the auto companies have to deal with. The two together would become my standard response to anyone who says that all our current problems were caused by the "free" market.
Nice. Click 'more information', page not found.
