Guess that answers my question on the jobs bank

UAW to ask Obama to remove 'unfair' labor rules

The UAW today said it is pleased that the Bush administration approved bridge loans to prop up General Motors Corp. and Chrysler during the economic downturn but is concerned that the restructuring conditions outlined in the terms of the loan unfairly single out hourly workers, and said it will work with the Obama administration to remove conditions it views as unfair.

So basically Bush helps the Big 3 limp along until Obama comes in and then its back to business as usual in Detroit. Meanwhile the UAW thinks by changing voting rules they have a chance to break into the nonunion automakers that are kicking the Big 3's ass. Thing is those that work at Toyota don't want any part of the UAW so good luck with that.
