Toyota has dismissed the claim by Treasurer Joe Hockey that its decision to stop manufacturing in Australia by 2017 was caused by inflexible union demands.

“The fact is they were very concerned about the conditions that existed at Toyota in Australia,” he told Fairfax radio, adding that this included union “militancy”.

However, in a statement Toyota said that it has never blamed the union for its decision, neither publicly or in private discussions with any stakeholders.


Comment: Sounds to me like another union beatup by the Liberal/National Party. What I take from this is that Toyota knows the TPP agreement is GOING TO BE SIGNED! (and they are getting out while they can!)
