Deere is projecting that it will set yet another record for profits next year, exploding the claim by company and union executives that there was no more money available to meet workers’ demands.
The conflict between rank-and-file workers and the UAW is being swept under the rug and deliberately concealed by organizations which have long functioned as apologists for the pro-corporate union bureaucracies.
As 10,000 John Deere workers have begun to return to plants and warehouses in recent days following the shutdown of their five-week-long strike, anger has remained high at the United Auto Workers union.
The John Deere Workers Rank-and-File Committee is leading the fight against the company and UAW’s attempt to impose new pro-corporate concessions.
