Unions Take GM To Court, Citing Contract Language Forbidding The Idling Of Plants

Unions are not backing down from GM’s recent unilateral move to lay off 14,000 workers.

KTUU reports:

“The United Auto Workers has sued General Motors in federal court to stop the closing of plants in Ohio, Michigan and Maryland, claiming the company is forbidden from idling plants under its current contract.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Youngstown, Ohio. The plants at which the UAW is trying to prevent closures are in Lordstown, Ohio; White Marsh, Maryland; and Warren, Michigan.

GM in a statement said the company’s November announcement about the closings doesn’t violate the contract and said the company is working with the UAW on ‘solutions to our business challenges.'”
