Over the summer, we informed you that LINC logistics workers — represented by UAW Local 5960 — planned on striking GM’s Orion Twp assembly plant due to wage disputes. The laborers, who are not directly employed by GM, make $9 an hour and no health benefits. Since then, labor negotiations were set in place, but the workers have recently rejected a labor proposal, and talks seem to be dead in the water.
As a result, the UAW-represented workers took a stand and picketed their employer, LINC, at the Orion assembly plant last Friday. If an agreement cannot be quickly reached, production of the Buick Verano and Chevrolet Sonic may be affected to a degree.
