President Ron Bieber of the Michigan AFL-CIO released a statement of support for the UAW members striking at GM facilities. The strike began at midnight on September 16th when their contract expired.
“The Michigan AFL-CIO and our one million active and retired members stand in solidarity with the UAW members on strike against GM in Michigan and across the country. It is because of the hard work of these men and women that GM is alive today making record-breaking, multi-billion dollar profits. This strike isn’t only about pay and benefits, it’s about securing American jobs and protecting working families.”
