GM Folds

All indications are that UAW will soon be ending their strike at the Fairfax GM plant thanks to a tentative agreement reached yesterday. Finally, after 16 days of 2,600 UAW members going without pay and hundreds more workers getting laid off at Penske Logistics, Faurecia Automotive Seating, and Inteva Products LLC as a result of the strike, UAW members with seniority can now take entry level line jobs at expert pay and stick the jobs that require a little more effort and skill to the newbies. Congrats!

We just wonder one thing. When the workers at Inteva or Penske have to strike because they don't get similar stellar seniority benefits are UAW members going to not cash their paychecks in support?
