Statement On GM Production Announcement

General Motors decision today to stop production at the Lordstown, Ohio, and Hamtramck, Michigan, assembly plants will idle thousands of workers, and will not go unchallenged by the UAW.

This decision will also affect employment at other GM locations including Baltimore, Maryland, and Michigan’s Brownstown and Warren Transmission plants.  The UAW and our members will confront this decision by GM through every legal, contractual and collective bargaining avenue open to our membership.

Region 8 Director Mitchell Smith: “It is a shameful day when a corporation like GM, that already makes record profits, pulls the rug out from its workforce and communities. All that is wrong about corporate America is what went into this decision. This will long be a textbook example of corporate greed.”
