UAW Lodges Formal Objection to GM Announcement
Monday, the UAW lodged a formal objection opposing GM’s plan to close four American auto plants in 2019. The complaint objected to GM’s unilateral decision on the future of those facilities, without the agreement of the UAW, required by the 2015 National Agreement.
UAW leadership remains steadfast in its commitment to protecting American jobs, with UAW President Gary Jones saying, “We have been clear that the UAW will leave no stone unturned and use any and all resources available to us regarding the future of these plants.” He added that “There are issues related to this and to collective bargaining that we cannot discuss in detail at this point. But UAW members across this country are committed to using every means available to us on behalf of our brothers and sisters at Lordstown, Hamtramck, Baltimore, and Warren, MI.”
