5 things to know about the United Auto Workers union strike

Almost 50,000 General Motors employees across the nation aren't showing up for work Monday.

Negotiations are set to resume Monday morning.

"UAW helped rebuild General Motors when they were near extinction, now they've reached record level profits", the union said in a statement Sunday. Although talks were halted over the weekend, UAW spokesman Brian Rothenberg said there was still dialogue. The statement also claimed, "We presented a strong offer that improves wages, benefits and grows USA jobs in substantive ways and it is disappointing that the UAW leadership has chosen to strike at midnight tonight". "I'm just hoping it don't have an effect on us". But the number of hourly workers at GM has declined sharply in recent decades, due to a combination of automation, lost market share and outsourcing. But the real heavy-hitters are the skilled trades workers who make up about 15 percent of the company's workforce-and these individuals can earn as much as $36 per hour and are often granted heavy overtime.

Supporters delivered coffee and food to strikers outside the gates amid honking horns of support from passing vehicles.

"It's not something taken lightly".

Tiller, a 22-year GM employee, framed the strike as about more than GM employees.

The UAW said the Aramark workers have been in negotiations since March 2018, and the company and union are at odds over pay and benefits. "The temps can be indefinite".

It's happening in nine states: Michigan, Ohio, New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, Missouri, Indiana, and Kansas.

Last November, as Common Dreams reported, GM sparked outrage when it announced plans to close several plants and slash almost 15,000 jobs after receiving an estimated $514 million from the GOP's tax legislation.

It's the first work stoppage by autoworkers in the U.S.in 12 years. That would mean fewer vehicles for consumers to choose from on dealer lots, and it would make it impossible to build specially ordered cars and trucks. Data from Cox Automotive suggests that the automaker has inventory to supply customers with vehicles for about 77 days, well above the industry's 61-day running average.

The union's contract with GM expired Saturday night, but pacts with the company's crosstown rivals, Ford and Fiat Chrysler, were extended indefinitely. Police arrive at Flint Assembly as UAW GM crowd pours into Van Slyke 28 mins into contract strike launch.

In Bay City on Monday, local government officials were among those making the rounds to show support for strikers at Bay City Powertrain, a plant opened in 1892 as National Cycle Manufacturing Co. and that produces engine and transmission components. "These are profitable times. and we deserve a fair contract". "They were arrogant and unreasonable", he said.

United Auto Workers members picket outside the General Motors in Parma. "It's ten percent lower than previous year but we've got a pipeline that's still full and I do expect to go ahead and get these vehicles that are already built", he added.

Earlier on Sunday, the UAW said maintenance workers employed by GM contractor Aramark would strike at five GM plants in MI and Ohio.
