For years the UAW Solidarity House in Detroit has let Marine reservists park in its lot while the reservists undergo weekend training.
Now, however, WXYZ.com reports that UAW has begun placing some restrictions on reservists’ parking privileges:
Marines at nearby Marine Corps Reserve Center say on Tuesday morning, the director of security at the UAW told them that while they support the troops, Marines driving foreign vehicles or sporting a President George Bush bumper sticker were no longer welcome to park there.
U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Joe Rutledge told Action News, “We received a phone call from the UAW, who support us by letting us park down at their facility. They called and said they weren’t going to allow or they would turn away some vehicles.”
A spokesman for the UAW released a statement to Action News which reads:
“While reservists certainly have the right to drive non-union made vehicles and display bumper stickers touting the most anti-worker, anti-union president since the 1920s, that doesn’t mean they have the right to park in a lot owned by members of the UAW.”
