Don't believe it, someone is just trying to sell news, by any means
There are less then 20 people protesting & if they were sabotaging the line, they would be gone as fast as the 3rd vehicle was inspected
They just hired & trained about 1,000 new employees, that are more then happy about having any job, any shift, any day

It is more then likely a parts issue, mainly not enough to keep the assembly process going smoothly

The union so far has stated they are not behind the workers on this.

It was on autoblog that the workers were unhappy about the way ram changed their hours and now some hundreds of trucks never passed final inspection. Their hours werevchanged to I think 3 shifts and they were moved around. All I can say. I am glad the problems are being caught before we buy them.

Nobody's doubting the claims that are now wide-spread.

Neither one of the links you provided claimed that "....As part of their protest, they decided to intentionally sabotage the Ram 1500 production..." as the originally posted link did.

To [deliberately and intentionally] use the term sabotage - a deliberate action aimed at weakening another entity through subversion, obstruction, disruption, or destruction - is nothing more than dramatization and a piss-poor attemp on behalf of TundraHeadquarters.com to shift and sway the market based purely on fabrication.

Shame on them!

I don't doubt the facts; nobody does.

The [reputable] media outlets do not doubt the facts.

Hell, Chrysler - much to their credit - do not doubt the facts.

There are [serious] issues at Chrysler's Warren Truck Assembly Plant, without a doubt. Morale is down. Workers are pissed. Quality control is [near] non-existent. Yada, yada, yada..... It is what it is. However, I've yet to find ONE other credible news source who claims Chrysler's workers are sabotaging the production of the 2013 Rams. But of course, TundraHeadquarters.com [and similar sites/blogs] will convince you otherwise.

Consider the source.


PS: The website in question is NOT affliated with Toyota in any way. It's just a bunch of Tundra nutthuggers who are intoxicated with emptiness into thinking the Tundra is the be-all and end-all of the pick-up world. Read: internet trolls.
