UA W head blasts Reagan's trade policies

Bieber, international president of
the United Auto Workers, blasted
the Reagan administration's
trade policies yesterday during a
campaign swing through In diana
for UAW-endorsed political nom-
Noting the large number of
auto workers in Indiana, Bieber
said, "The working people in this
state have a tremendous stake in
this year's election."
HE SAID free-trade policies

have led to Indiana's loss of 11
percent of its manufacturing jobs
since 1976, "most of the loss since
Ronald Reagan took office."
Bieber said he "doesn't have
any argument" with Japanese
auto companies relocating in the
United States.. However, he said
the Japanese are purchasing only
about 30 percent of the vehicles'
components in this country. He
said the Japanese have been
shipping drive trains to the
United States that already have

been assembled in Japan.
The Japanese are bringing
their own support companies with
them, he said.
"FOR every assembler in a
domestic auto plant, there are 11
support jobs created," the union
leader added. "The Japanese
assembler here generates only
three jobs."
Bieber also denounced the
situation created when Japanese
companies show an interest in
coming to the United States,

sparking a bidding war among
"It bothers me that states end up
building a facility for a profit-
making organization," he said.
"That's a vast departure from the
American way."
Bieber represents 85,000 active
UAW members in Indiana,
15,000 laid-off workers who are
subject to recall, 25,000 laid-off
workers who are no longer subject
to recall, and 25,000 retirees.
