Utility Workers Union Statement in Reaction to GM’s Decision to Cancel Health Insurance Payments

WASHINGTON, DC (SEPTEMBER 18, 2019) – The Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA), AFL-CIO today released the following statement on behalf of President Jim Slevin in reaction to GM’s decision to cancel health insurance payments:

“GM’s decision to suspend healthcare payments is a vicious and personal attack on UAW members. As a union that has experienced similar vindictive measures from employers, we urge our UAW brothers and sisters to stay strong and keep fighting for the hard-earned benefits you’ve worked for. GM should be ashamed of hurting families in this way.”
