One of the country’s largest and most powerful labor unions finalized its negotiations with the three largest Detroit automakers Wednesday.
The United Auto Workers Union is in the news again today, but this time it isn’t for putting automotive employees back to work.
After reaching an impressive deal with General Motors recently, the United Auto Workers union was back at it over the holiday weekend.
After 40 days of no work at General Motors plants across the country, employees are finally returning to work this week.
Amid a parts stoppage that GM says is due to the current standoff across the nation, GM will now shut down its pickup truck and transmission factories in Silao, Mexico.
The United Auto Workers union and General Motors failed to reach a deal before the deadline on Sunday night, resulting in the walkout of 50,000 workers this morning, the largest labor strike since 2007.
