Greetings Union Brothers and Sisters: We have made significant progress in this set of negotiations since I last updated you on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. At this time, we now have 18 out of 20 subcommittees that have reached tentative agreements or have negotiated to the point that only patterned or large economic items remain open for discussion.

RE: National Strike - Day 16

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Last night, Monday, September 30, 2019, GM passed a comprehensive proposal at 9:40 pm across the bargaining table.

This proposal that the Company provided to us on day 15 of the strike did not satisfy your contract demands or needs. There were many areas that came up short like health care, wages, temporary employees, skilled trades and job security to name a few.  Additionally, concessionary proposals still remain in the company's proposals as of late last night.

Mr. Sandefur: I am in receipt of your email dated Wednesday, September 25, 2019, that I received this morning, Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:57 am. Let me recap the sequence of events regarding this very important matter for all our striking members and their families.
Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: All unsettled proposals are now at the Main Table and have been presented to General Motors, and we are awaiting their response. This back and forth will continue until Negotiations are complete. The International Staff and your elected Bargaining Committee have been working countless hours to reach an Agreement on behalf of our Members, their families and all the communities affected by this strike.
Dear Sisters and Brothers, Thank you for your participation in last Sunday’s Solidarity Sunday; due to the overwhelming response from our members we will continue to hold “Solidarity Sunday” every Sunday until we ratify the contract at the UAW General Motors and Aramark picket lines across the nation and I again encourage your participation.

Across the country, UAW members, families and communities are proving the motto “all for one and one for all.” From Michigan to Ohio, Kansas to Kentucky—even in Wyoming people are standing side-by-side in solidarity, community organizations are donating food, diapers and necessary services, and businesses are providing strike discounts for UAW workers and their families.

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Today we enter the 4th day of our National Strike with General Motors. I can report to you that as of today, some progress has been made, but there are still many of our Memberships’ issues that remain unresolved. Your elected Bargaining Committee and the UAW International Staff have been working long hours each day for weeks negotiating on our Members’ behalf. The process of meeting in subcommittees and main tables will continue this weekend and beyond, if a Tentative Agreement is not reached.
