FLINT, Mich. — Mayor Karen Weaver released the following statement Monday morning after the UAW were unable to reach an agreement with General Motors:
“I stand in solidarity with the many men and women who are on the picket line. Unions are the backbone of our community, they ensure that our families and loved ones are treated fairly and given their proper respect for the service they provide.
Every worker has the right to healthcare, a fair and equal wage, and job security. It is my hope that General Motors and the UAW are able to quickly come to an agreement because of the significant impact that this has on our community.
Flint has always been a union town and we will remain union strong by standing with our auto workers.”
