UAW workers march in Detroit as GM strike enters 26th day

Washington Times 1 month ago

DETROIT (AP) - Dozens of United Auto Workers union members are gathering outside a General Motors facility in suburban Detroit to continue what they call their fight for working-class Americans.

Tens of thousands of General Motors union workers have been striking nationwide for nearly four weeks. Both sides are sparring over wages, job security, investments in U.S. plants and technology training for workers.

General Motors millwright Jessica Merz was at Friday’s demonstration outside the company’s Warren Technical Center. She says she’s been working at General Motors for 20 years and wants “a fair gig.”

Frank Stuglin is a regional union director. He says the strike against Detroit-based General Motors is the first step in fighting for America’s working class.

Demonstrators said Friday they will strike for as long as they need to.
