<<Yes ... Thanks Mom. From your articles, it would seem that the union has the upper hand because of the level of lost income in store if the strike goes a long time. But I'm new to GM stock ... since the articles talked about the many times the UAW has struck GM, is there a local perception as to whether this strike is any better or worse than the others?>>Let me first say Umillt it appears you have started a whirlwind of information going on this board congrats.as far as the strike goes I've heard in addition to GM losing money if the strike drags on the union members will also lose as the plant was scheduled for it's annual shutdown for retooling or maintneance or something similar and that if the workers are striking they won't get paid for this time as they normally would. The WISE on cnbc made it sound as though this was important to the workers. I've also heard that they are on a quota system and when they reach their quota after 6 hours not only don't they have to do anthing productive they can go home. my .02Brian
