    Default UAW to Go On Strike at Midnight at Corvette Assembly Plant

    Just as C7 Corvette production is set to come to an end in just a few weeks, GM and the United Auto Workers union have been unable to come to an agreement over a new contract.

    According to reports that we've received here at the Corvette Action Center - negotiations have not gone well at all this week. At one point, they were so bad, that only 8 Corvettes were built at the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant this past Wednesday.

    Why can't people just be happy to have a job. The unions always have it better than everyone else, why do they always want more.

    I actually quit a union job because of the strikes. I worked for S.E.P.T.A. over in Philly.

    I don't think I would want one of those 8, and more likely wouldn't want any that are built until AFTER the strike is settled!

    The Unions always want more to justify their existence.

    Why workers vote down a pay raise is beyond me.

    I don't like making plans for the day. The word "premeditated" is not useful when it gets thrown around a courtroom.
