"We will notify every Ford dealer we are not going to buy any Ford cars until Ford signs a contract with the U. A. W. A." The resolution charged the Ford management with exercising every means of destroying all semblance of bona fide labor organizations within its plants, was an "unfair competitor" with other manufacturers who have signed union agrcments and: "That in event (he Ford Motor Company |x:rsist.s in its refusal to bargair collectively with the U. A. W. A. the delegates will treat Ford products as unfair and will so advise their respective unions." In Detroit Harry Bennett, personnel dircctotr for Ford, asserted the U. A. W. A., was "not representative in Ford plants" with the union "wherever they are representative."
