1.         Department of Labor and the AFL-CIO

    a.        I would re-examine the government buy-out / take-over to GM and Chrysler.  
    The bond holders were sold short and the Unions end up owning a significant
    portion of the company.  The company should have been allowed to fail and
    reorganize under existing bankruptcy laws.   In my opinion, the failure of the auto
    manufacturers to compete in the international markets is significantly attributable to
    the unions.  It appears to me that the unions have made demands on management
    to change the design of automobiles that ease the work load on the assembly line
    rather than the benefit of the end user.  Management shares responsibility by
    accommodating the demands of the Unions and compromising the design and
    marketability of the products.

    b.       In my opinion, the failure of the auto manufacturers to remain competitive in
    the domestic market is significantly attributable to the unions.  It appears to me that
    the unions have made demands on management to change the design of
    automobiles that ease the work load and increase pay on the assembly line rather
    than the benefit of the end user.  Management shares responsibility by
    accommodating the union demands and compromising the company's market
    position.



    c.        BOEING and SPEEA;  I have submitted a questionaire to the union regarding my position on
    various proposed rules now pending in congress.  My responses are posted here.
