The United Auto Workers (UAW) have begun a threatened strike against
Chrysler LLC, the second UAW strike against an American automobile
company in the last three weeks. Multiple sources, including CNN and
The New York Times, report that workers have left the factories and are
setting up picket lines outside work sites. The union and Chrysler have
been negotiating a new four-year contract. The strike affects more than
45,000 workers at 24 manufacturing plants and 22 other facilities
spread across 14 states. However, five facilities in Michigan,
Delaware, and Illinois are being exempted from the strike, as they have
previously been tagged for shutdown by the company. Negotiations are
expected to continue during the walkout.
