UAW and the US Marines - "Parking Silliness" Is Resolved

Posted By Blackfive • [March 14, 2005]

In reference to this post - Is the UAW Anti-Marine?, I just received word that the UAW is backing off.

The US Marine Corps Reserve Battalion Commander had already made the decision to not allow any drilling Marine Reservists to park in the UAW lot - he thinks it's "parking silliness" and his Marines need to "focus on more important things".  He's right, of course.  His Marines are training for their next deployment.

Then, after thinking the issue settled this morning, the CO receives a call from UAW President Ron Gettelfinger (a former Marine) who told him that he just reversed the policy.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Marines refuse to park there.  Anyway, the parking issue is resolved done.
