Labor group alleges labor abuses by Toyota

August 29, 2007
A group tied to the United Auto Workers union is calling on Toyota Motor Corp. to rehire two workers it says were fired from the Japanese automaker's Georgetown, Ky., assembly plant for trying to organize a union.

Kentucky Jobs With Justice also said Toyota should improve safety and treatment of temporary workers at the plant, according to Bloomberg.

Toyota wouldn't discuss the firings and said it can deal with the other two charges.

The UAW wants to organize Toyota to bolster membership at a time when domestic car companies are laying off workers.
