It’s been a week since General Motors’ contract with the United Auto Workers union expired.
This past weekend, members asked people to join them on the picket lines for “Solidarity Sunday,” and as Britt Salay reports, the goal is to show support for the employees who have been striking around the clock.
U.A.W. leaders have said that some progress has been made, but so far, no deal has been reached.
The employees will receive strike pay of $250 per week should they hit the 15-day mark, but for many of those on the picket lines, that’s a drastic cut from their weekly pay.
