UAW Aramark maintenance workers go on strike

UAW Aramark maintenance workers go on strike”

In the letter released by the union Monday, Dittes wrote that there are many important items left in the talks including wage increases, pay for new hires, job security, profit sharing and treatment of temporary workers. GM officials have said the plant shutdowns are necessary responses to market shifts, and that UAW wages and benefits are expensive compared with competing non-union auto plants in the southern United States. "And we're out here sacrificing a 100%" Mucci said.

UAW leaders signaled they remain far from a settlement with GM on a range of issues, including the future of four US factories the company has indicated it will close.

"Somebody shouldn't have to work more than 20 years at (a) place until they get full-time and that's what they're doing", said Basse, one of 371 hourly employees at the plant that opened 100 years ago.

Early Monday, workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the US, as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. The workers, who see the plant closures as a betrayal of those who stood by GM when it went through the 2009 government-led bankruptcy, apparently found these terms unsatisfactory.

"Up until we get a fair agreement, we're going to say out here", said Morgan.

In a statement, GM said it was "disappointing" that the UAW's leadership had made a decision to call the strike, saying it had presented a "strong offer" in contract negotiations.

Every few minutes, passing drivers honked their horns in solidarity for the few dozen United Automobile Workers members who were picketing outside the plant.

"General Motors needs to understand that we stood up for GM when they needed us", Ted Krumm, head of the union's bargaining committee in talks with GM, said at a press conference on Sunday. President Donald Trump has consistently criticized the company and demanded that Lordstown be reopened.

Talks between the company and the union were scheduled to resume at 10 a.m. Monday. GM was picked because it's the most profitable of the three, and because its plans to close four US factories have angered union members.

Although those contracts were also set to expire, they were extended indefinitely by the company and the union late last week.

On Sunday, about 200 plant-level leaders voted unanimously to strike against GM if no deal could be reached by Sunday night.

GM has factories in Michigan, Ohio, New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, Missouri, Indiana and Kansas.

Also top of mind is the idling of several GM plants, including an assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio.

A source close to the UAW with direct knowledge of negotiations said most of the proposals the company disclosed publicly on Sunday came very late in negotiations Saturday.

AP reported it's highly possible that GM production in Canada and Mexico may also stop. "I don't know how long it's gonna last", he said. But supplies are well below the industry average for Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, which generate big money for the company.
