The US auto workers union just decided to walk out on GM a?? here's why they're striking (GM)

The UAW ordered its membership to strike General Motors on Sunday night after contract negotiations broke down.




GM's 46,000 UAW-represented workers could take to the picket lines.




The UAW has been bristling for a strike since early 2019, when GM "unallocated" several US factories, including its Lordstown facility in Ohio.




President Donald Trump, who won Ohio in 2016, has been agitating for GM to sell or reopen that plant.




The 2007 strike against GM lasted just a few days; it's uncertain how long this new action will hold up.

General Motors' 46,000 employees represented by the United Auto Workers will strike Sunday night, the first major labor action in over a decade against a US carmaker.
The current GM contract with the UAW, under negotiation all summer long, lapsed with no extension at midnight on Saturday; pro forma extensions were agreed to with Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, both of whom are awaiting the outcome of the GM deal, which would form a template for a new four-year agreement between the union and the Detroit Big Three.
