15 years ago I lived in Tennessee, not to far from Union City where Goodyear had a tire plant. Goodyear wanted to go to continious production (run Sundays with no over time). They put it to the Union and they voted it down, the next day millwrights were in the plant diassembling tire machines, seems that morning Goodyear decided the plant was slated for closure. Goodyear paid good wages, most folks were making over 50K if they had been their for any length of time. The Union scheduled a new vote and the membership accepted the continious production and avoided plant closure, IF folks could "trade" their Sundays with another worker, Goodyear agreed provided they didn't inccur any overtime. Seems the major objection to Sundays was from about 6-8 folks that were also Pastors for small congregations, some were being paid cash and I suspect they weren't declaring it. Those 6-8 people worked the rest of the membership up into a frenzy and almost cost them jobs that were paying almost twice the local average.
