If 70% of UTI instructors are incompetent (as one worker claimed), would it be possible for the most qualified UTI workers to organize the most skilled and competent workers (and most skilled former workers) with the goal of taking over the company as a non-profit coop? If the stock continues to drop, and shareholders bail out, there will still be the infrastructure.

@Camden kid. The instructors at UTI can't see the big picture, they would rather complain about shifts instead of organizing and fight for what would really help them and thier family. Since I have been there we have lost our 401k match our bonus gotten horrible insurance and we can't accumulate extra vacation. The CEO is just screwing us left and right and they worry about who has what shift. It's madening.
@Anonymous71633, I don't have that kind of pull, but if you have a core group of qualified instructors, you should ask for help from people like Richard D. Wolff, who has been talking a lot lately about worker-directed coops.
To the Camden Kid, why don't you put all these posts in you paper or report your findings to your local new? let it go viral.
