UAW on Strike

The UAW went on strike at 11:00 this morning.  Ron Gettelfinger gave a press conference at 12:00 for the union:

“We were very disappointed in this round of negotiation to discover as we moved forward that it was a one-way set of negotiations. It was going to be General Motors way at the expense of the workers. The company walked right up to the deadline like they really didn’t care.”

This is the first UAW strike since the 1970’s. GM and the UAW will continue to negotiate during the strike. May the workers prevail!!
