United Automobile Workers Strike at GM
Nearly 50,000 members of the United Automobile Workers union in the Midwest and South went on strike at General Motors for the first time since 2007. The union is pushing the automaker to reopen three idled plants, add jobs and improve wages, as well as fighting to keep their healthcare affordable. In the face of continued attacks on organized labor across the country, NYSNA stands in solidarity with the members of U.A.W. and their efforts to protect the rights of working people.
