  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9-17-2019 As the UAW and General Motors negotiate hard to find a contract solution both parties can live with, we'd like to ask the GM-Trucks.com readership if they have a firm position now. Who do you support? This writer grew up in a union neighborhood, in a dual-income half-union household. Dad was a union welder, mom worked in retail and was not in a union. Paid union dues himself for a short time (UPS), and watched as those good-paying, blue-collar manufacturing jobs (at General Electric in Lynn Mass.) shrank, and eventually went away. These issues affect many families. Where do you stand? - If you want some background on the contract that has just expired, click here. - If you want updated profit sharing info, click here. - Want to know how much the CEO of GM makes? Click here. Test your knowledge: - Which two industries have the highest-paid union members? - Name the last American President who was a (non-government) union member and his party. - Name the last (non-government) union-member American President who preceded that president and his party. (Hint, he was actually also a union president).
  2. Under the current contract, GM's workers represented by the United Auto Workers max out at about $29 per hour. That is roughly $60K in earnings per year before overtime. This $11,000 bonus is ,therefore, about 20% of each worker's annual pay. For details on the contract recently ratified, please see out prior story. News Source Credit - Detroit Free Press.
  3. The contract is still viable and many more plants will be voting shortly. For more details please see the Detroit Free Press story we used as a source for this report.
  4. UAW President Dennis Williams (shown in the blue sport coat in the image), commented on the agreement, saying “We believe that this agreement will present stable long-term significant wage gains and job security commitments to UAW members now and in the future. We look forward to presenting the details of these gains to local union leaders and the membership.” The agreement is expected to be the same as that which was recently struck with FCA US. The agreement will now be sent to the UAW membership for a vote. Image note - Image is from the UAW media page.
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 10/26/2015 Shortly after the end of Sunday Night Football (11:43pm) last night, GM and the UAW came to an agreement that will boost wages for UAW members working at GM plants. The Detroit Free Press reports that the two-tiered wage system negotiated during the dark days in the mid-2K decade will be eliminated. Presently, UAW workers earn about $10 more per hour than non-union U.S. autoworkers. This new agreement will only add to that disparity. UAW President Dennis Williams (shown in the blue sport coat in the image), commented on the agreement, saying “We believe that this agreement will present stable long-term significant wage gains and job security commitments to UAW members now and in the future. We look forward to presenting the details of these gains to local union leaders and the membership.” The agreement is expected to be the same as that which was recently struck with FCA US. The agreement will now be sent to the UAW membership for a vote. Image note - Image is from the UAW media page.
  6. Here are GM's last two press release titles: 1) GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly to Add Second Shift and More Than 1,200 Jobs 2) GM Reports Third-Quarter Net Income of $1.4 Billion and Record EBIT-Adjusted of $3.1 Billion. Given that GM does not need to pay federal tax on its profits, courtesy of the 2009 taxpayer bailout, it is hard to see how GM gets to an agreement with the UAW without significant concessions.
  7. "The bargaining teams on both sides worked hard, for many days and nights, to craft a transformational agreement that would adequately reward the commitment of our workforce while ensuring the Company’s continued success and competitiveness. Striking the right balance in these two objectives has been the most difficult thing to accomplish in these negotiations, but after many hours of dialogue and debate between the UAW and FCA US leadership, the Company felt that a just and equitable compromise had been reached. The memories of our near-death experience in 2009 are vivid to this day in the minds of most of us at FCA. A large number of new employees have been brought into the Group since then who, thankfully, did not have to endure the pain and sacrifices that were required of the workforce then. But it is that knowledge and those memories that continuously reinforce the FCA leadership’s resolve to never let those events repeat. While significant progress has been made since the events of less than seven years ago, much more work remains to be done and challenges remain while new, significant ones surface. The cyclical nature of the automotive business demands that while we must recognize the need for rewarding employees during times of prosperity, we must also protect against the inevitable market downturn. This agreement accomplished both of these objectives. The tentative agreement was designed to yield a strong and competitive FCA US, thus providing stability for our workforce and opportunity for future growth and investment in an increasingly complex global marketplace. The Company will make decisions, as always, based on achieving our industrial objectives, and looks forward to continuing a dialogue with the UAW."
  8. Today, UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles issued a 5-day strike notice to Ford for its Kansas City F-150 plant according to the Detroit Free Press. Settles was quoted as saying "The company (Ford) has failed to negotiate in good faith at the local level on issues surrounding manpower provisions, the national heat stress program, and skilled trades scheduling amongst others."
  9. After the $10 billion taxpayer-funded bailout of GM and what we used to call "Chrysler", the UAW agreed to a temporary no-strike clause.
