Union Warns Aura, Malibu Plant of Possible Strike

From the Kansas City Business Journal: Union employees at the General Motors Fairfax Assembly Plant issued a letter warning the company that they will strike on Tuesday unless progress is made toward getting a new contract. Jeff Manning, president of United Auto Workers Local 31, said the previous contract expired in September. General Motors and union officials are trying to iron out a new four-year deal. Local 31 has about 2,600 members. Manning said the main point of contention is that the union wants seniority to continue playing a role in bidding for transfer jobs at the plant. He said that other issues remain but that he's not at liberty to discuss them now. The five-day notice was issued Thursday afternoon and expires at 3:30pm Tuesday, Manning said.
