GM strike: Nearly 50,000 workers walk out at America's biggest automaker

  • Workers walk out:  The United Auto Workers union went on strike against General Motors late Sunday.
  • It's a big deal:  This is the biggest strike by any labor organization in the United States since 2007.  GM, America's largest automaker, has nearly 50,000 full-time and temporary UAW members on its payroll.
  • What happens next:  The two parties resumed negotiations Monday morning.

In every report I've seen on this strike now there it has been mandatory there's a mention that GMs autonomous vehicle program exists. So GM is making sure to push a narrative about a product that is so far off that I might not even see it by using a strike to push it. Of course, this is also an effort to make the workers look like they are preventing THE FUTURE from happening while also trying to frame GM as "tech" to tech bros so that is allowed to lose infinite money in case the strike drags on.

Well the fact that they are losing money would be viewed as a plus by tech bros.  😂

So if they are upgrading Brookpark, does that mean they arent selling or is this a different property?

Not completely sure, but the article mentions just additional product lines at Brookpark, not additional Space. Engine plant 1 covers only a fraction of the footprint it used to, so there is still plenty of vacant land to sell if they want.
