They were forced by the US Commander-in-Thief to take a 10% stake in a company where they held 40% of the debt in secured instruments and a union that held far less UNsecured debt received nearly a 50% stake. Gee, I don’t think thats an ‘enviable’ position. It seems like another group being victimized by that “Change” virus thats going around. It makes you sick of your president, takes most of your money, and only leaves some change.

If they don’t get 100% of what they’re owed, my understanding is that they can just foreclose on the security. In this case, that’s probably all of Chrysler’s assets, including plants, equipment and intellectual property.

Given that, what’s to keep the secured investors from foreclosing on the assets, hiring the (ex-) Chrysler employees they need and then making a deal with Fiat?

You just lump them in with all “stakeholders”.
