Statement of UAW Vice President Terry Dittes on GM Investments in Tonawanda and Spring Hill

“UAW members during the 40-day strike last fall received significant economic commitments to many plants. Under the direction of Region 9 Director Jeff Binz, the $6.7 million investment at GM’s Tonawanda Plant will continue UAW members’ quality work on the 5.3L V8 engines they provide. In Spring Hill, an over $40 million commitment under the direction of Region 8 Director Mitchell Smith will significantly expand the production capacity on the V8 engine as well. These investments through the 2019 collective bargaining agreement provide significant job security in both New York and Tennessee for UAW members, their families and their communities.”
