As GM Strike Stretches On, Supply Chain Starts to Suffer
By Ben Foldy
Companies that supply parts to General Motors Co. are being forced to idle plants and lay off workers, as the national strike called by the United Auto Workers completes its fourth day.
Nearly 46,000 full-time GM workers walked off the job on Monday after the UAW and GM were unable to agree on a new four-year labor agreement before the previous one expired. As of Thursday afternoon, talks were continuing between the company and the union, but the stoppage was likely to enter a fifth day. The strike is now the longest nationwide strike again GM since the 1970s.
