A story I read yesterday said they were still at it, but......
Of course the story had the usual load of double-talking BS from the New Car Dealers Committee rep named Bilek. To quote from the article....
Bilek disputed mechanics view of manufacturer guidelines on how long it should take to do a particular repair.
If the mechanics gets the job done sooner than the industry standards, then they get full credit for the so-called book time.
"If they work 40 hours. yet did jobs that should have taken longer times then they could earn 50 or 60 book hours and literally make even more money", Bilek said.
Note this slimy sack of shit failed to mention to the reporter that mechanics are often coerced into doing many things for free and many of those "book time" jobs are flat impossible to perform in the time allowed.
And of course the naive reporter laps it all up and reports it as is without considering (as Paul Harvey would say...) "the rest of the story".
