From the union's standpoint, the timing is not strange, it is IDEAL. GM certainly does not want to delay the start-up of the new line of trucks. This is why the new metal stamping dies were removed from the Flint plant during Memorial Day weekend (anticipation of the strike). That plan however, appears that it won't pan out as the plant that now has the dies is saying if they are asked to use them, they will walk out too, in support of their "Brothers and Sisters."

Incentive to slow current production? I'm not sure what your thinking is here.
