STATEMENT: Utility Workers Union Statement In Support of the United Auto Workers’ Strike Against General Motors

WASHINGTON, DC (SEPTEMBER 16, 2019) – The Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA), AFL-CIO today released the following statement on behalf of National President Jim Slevin in support of the United Auto Workers’ (UAW) national strike against General Motors:

“We stand in solidarity with thousands of UAW members as they strike against General Motors for a fair contract and to keep good union jobs in the United States. When GM was in financial trouble, UAW members, retirees and their families sacrificed to make GM profitable again. It is high time that GM’s union workers be repaid at the bargaining table. We are hopeful both sides can quickly come to an agreement that fully recognizes UAW members’ contributions to GM’s success.”
