American Axle strikers send message to would-be scabs
Published Apr 10, 2008 1:21 AM
Now in the seventh week of the American Axle strike, more than 3,600
workers and their supporters at five plants in Michigan and New York are still
holding strong. As of April 6, at least 30 GM plants have shut down due to the
bosses’ greed. Donations, provisions and resolutions continue to pour
into the locals’ union halls.
On April 5 in Hamtramck, Mich., a crowd of strikers and their labor and
community allies marched from the center of town to the Local 235 and Local 262
union halls. The United Auto Worker International and the local’s
bargaining teams will return to the bargaining table April 9.
Mobilizing is ongoing for an April 18 UAW rally at Hart Plaza in Detroit to
support the American Axle workers. For more information: 313-926-5312 or
