Thumbs up More Great News

Unions get a taste of their own medicine.

A strike at a parts supplier in India has forced General Motors Co.'s Lansing Delta Township plant to temporarily shut down next week.



More than 2,700 workers will go on layoff starting Monday, with an expected return date of Nov. 9, GM spokeswoman Heidi Magyar said.

The plant, which makes the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave crossovers, is experiencing a shortage of transmission parts from Rico Auto Industries Ltd.

Roughly 2,000 workers at the India-based supplier went on strike more than a month ago, resulting in plant closures for GM and Ford Motor Co., said Tom Balogh, an account manager at Clarkston-based Rico North America.

I thought so. "The union makes us strong; the union makes our voices heard."

looks to me like they cant get away from the unions. eventually even the 3rd world countries will get representation for descent wages and the suppliers will have to return. but 2012 will be here soon and we'll all be dead anyways.

I don't know about returning but I agree otherwise.

So won't the union workers still get paid much of their pay even while this strike is going on?

pretty sure the nixed that deal when not working during the concessions. they get regular unenjoyment like the rest of michigan. not the 90 or so percent pay like they used to.

They still probably get a supplemental pay, but not what it used to be.

I put $1/hr into a fund to help when work gets slow and unenjoyment just doesn't cut it.
