Autoworkers from Closed Plants Fight New GM Contract

If they can close our plant, they can close yours, too. That's the message from workers at three shuttered General Motors factories that didn't get new products under the tentative contract agreement reached last week between GM and the United Auto Workers. The union has been on strike against the company across the U.S. for over six weeks now. Union members are voting this week on a new four-year deal. Approval could end the walkout that has crippled GM's production, costing the company an estimated $2 billion.
