LANSING, Sept. 16, 2019—Yesterday, the United Auto Workers called for a nationwide strike against General Motors following the expiration of the union contract at midnight Saturday after talks stalled in the negotiation process. In response, House Democratic Leader Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills) issued the following statement: 

 “Our state is stronger today because of the ability of workers to collectively negotiate for the wages and benefits they deserve. Collective bargaining is critically important to Michiganders’ livelihood and our state economy. It takes courage to stand up for workplace rights. I fully support the UAW workers in their fight for American jobs, fair wages and affordable health care and stand in solidarity with them.”
