General Motors' UAW woes are continuing as 3 UAW locals on Friday filed five-day strike notices. The threatened strikes are about local issues and don`t involve the national contract that was negotiated with GM in 2007. Basically the notice is informing General Motors that workers at individual factories will strike if all their needs arenâ€™t addressed within five days.
So, according to Automotive News, UAW locals that represents the workers at GM's Arlington, Texas; Michigan, Delta Township and Parma, Ohio facilities filed all the five-day notice.
GM didnâ€™t make any comment on the specifics of these notices, but the Detroit-based carmaker did say most local issues involve the absenteeism and work rules.
General Motor's Arlington, Texas factory makes the Cadillac Escalade, GMC Yukon and Chevrolet . Although General Motor's big SUVs are typically its largest profit earners, the sales have been down â€“ this due to rising fuel cost.
GM's Delta Township factory produces the GMC Acadia, Saturn Outlook plus Buick Enclave â€“ whose sales now have been strong despite the slumping economy. The Acadia`s the hottest of these three Lambdas, having sales with 29.4 percent raise in March.
General Motor's Parma, Ohio factory is a stamping facility (metal).
Over these last few weeks, General Motor has been forced to a closeup on over 30 factories â€” including 7 light-duty truck plants plus one passenger car plant â€” this because of some UAW strike at the American Axel.
