Report: GM Strike Is Over What Products Are Made In The US, Not Money

Money isn’t why the United Auto Workers union is still striking at GM.

A new report indicates the main issue preventing an end to the strike by the United Auto Workers against General Motors is a disagreement over what products will be built in the United States. The Detroit Free Press reports the UAW wants more parts and vehicles made in the U.S. instead of shipping that work south to Mexico.

GM has not responded to the latest letter to union members from UAW vice president Terry Dittes on Tuesday in which he says there has not been a "solid commitment" from the company to building vehicles in American facilities. The strike is now in its fourth week.

Experts say without that promise from GM, no contract will matter.
