GM workers give union leaders strike authorization

Local News

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Workers at the General Motors Lordstown plant are giving their union leadership the authority to call a strike, if it’s needed.

Members of United Auto Workers Local 1112 and Local 1714 voted over a 24-hour period on the strike authorization. The voting ended on Friday.

A strike authorization vote does not mean workers will strike. It just gives union leaders the ability to call a strike if talks stall.

The UAW is in contract talks with GM. The current contract expires September 14th.
