Delphi Looking For The Dime-Bag Edge

This image was lost some time after publication.


Delphi, in a move smackin' with stupid, decided to piss the UAW off a li'l bit. Our friends at The Car Connection are reporting that Delphi has begun advertising for replacement's at the not-quite-union rate of $10 an hour at its Athens, Ala. steering parts plant. The ad (which we're still lookin' for) has provoked just a wee bit of controversy, due to Delphi's UAW contract requiring the bankrupt parts supplier to hire workers for a minimum wage of no less than $14 an hour. A reduction below $14 only flies if the UAW contract were to somehow be changed - or if Delphi was allowed to suspend its union contracts under a motion pending before the Bankruptcy Court judge. We doubt even Delphi would do something so stupid without a judge's ruling — wait, this is Delphi we're talkin' bout here — and Alabama. The only answer we can think of is — do they have the insider know-how allowin' them to be dropping an ad like this?
[Update: Our eagle-eyed reader Campbell dropped us a link to the ad as printed by the Northwest Alabama Times Daily. We've re-printed after the jump.]
