“We’re shocked and disappointed that General Motors has failed to recognize and appreciate what our membership has contributed during the past four years,” UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said in a statement. “Since 2003, our members have made extraordinary efforts every time the company came to us with a problem: the corporate restructuring, the attrition plan, the Delphi bankruptcy, the 2005 health care agreement. In every case, our members went the extra mile to find reasonable solutions.”

Normally I'm against strikes. They do more harm than good especially to the strikers. In this case, knowing what they are striking for, I'm on their side for the first time, ever. They are trying to stop GM from outsourcing any more than they already have and that can only be a good thing for everyone.
