  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. GM also announced it is recalling 90 (yup, just 90) 2016 Silverados and Sierras because a mounting stud for an airbag sensor was improperly positioned during assembly. All 90 were built on October 13th and 14th. Again, this was during the period of the voting for the new contract, in this case just before the vote. The defect also occurred on the Tuesday and Wednesday following a Monday holiday, Columbus Day. You can check right here at this link to see if your vehicle is affected by either recall.
  3. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1/6/2016 General Motors is recalling 2,633 Acadia, Traverse, Enclave 2016 models all made at the Lansing Michigan plant. The affected vehicles could have a defective weld in the third-row seat assembly that is a safety concern according to NHTSA. The welds were applied during November from the 6th to the 12th of the month. A few days before that the Union that represents the line workers held a vote on the new contract. It narrowly passed. 43% of the workers at the plant voted against it. The period also coincided with a holiday (Veterans Day) and a weekend. This is almost certainly a coincidence. Recalls happen so often now, and often to so few vehicles it is hard to know what we should highlight.

  4. UAW President Dennis Williams' focus is on newer UAW members. In prior negotiations the union agreed to let GM cap newer workers' pay well below the top earnings of older, longer serving union members. Williams commented on those workers, saying, "Some of them are not part of the middle class like they should be." In its reporting on the talks, US News & World Report said that GM and Ford want to reduce labor costs, which are about $9.00 higher per hour of labor than Toyota and Honda pay to non-union workers in nearby states. By contrast, the UAW wants to increase pay, which has essentially been unchanged since 2005, following agreements made around the time that General Motors went through bankruptcy.
  5. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 7/14/2015 It's all smiles and handshakes at the start of General Motors' and its workers' union negotiations. Things generally are not as friendly after that for a bit. Cathy Clegg, GM North America vice president of Manufacturing and Labor Relations will be the head of negotiations for GM. She commented at the opening ceremonies, saying “Formal talks begin today, but in recent years we’ve demonstrated our ability to develop creative solutions together. As a team we must continue to solve problems, build in quality and enhance competitiveness.” UAW President Dennis Williams' focus is on newer UAW members.
