"United Auto Workers (UAW) union members at General Motors (GM) have walked out
on strike after contract talks failed to reach an agreement. It is the first
time that UAW has held a nationwide strike during contract negotiations since
1976. Workers began forming pickets outside five GM plants in the US as a
deadline for a deal passed."
This is a great idea, since they can't get what they want, they are going to put the company out of business. If I were GM, I would sell the shop, close down and re-open the whole company under a different name, completely abandon Detroit. Move domestic production to other states, and foreign countries.
