France -American media give unions a bad press -March 16, 2013

It may be no surprise, but in the slipstream of recent labour disputes it has become clear which side they are on. After several clashes that showed the resistance tire producers face from trade unions and workers in efforts to rein in losses in the region prominent US press agencies have started to defend the executives that came up with plans for closures. In some articles the blame is given to the unions that are said to have ‘rejected all labour offers made by executives’.
