DETROIT/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United Auto Workers (UAW) went on strike at General Motors just after midnight Sunday and about 48,000 hourly workers at its facilities are headed for the picket lines in the morning, union officials said early Monday. U.S. labour contract talks reached an impasse on Sunday, the and the UAW called for the first nationwide strike at GM in 12 years. "We do not take this lightly," Terry Dittes, the UAW vice president in charge of the union's relationship with GM, said at a news conference in downtown Detroit on Sunday.
The United Auto Workers called for a strike starting at midnight on Sunday as union leaders demanded GM “recognise the contributions” workers have made to “create a healthy, profitable industry”. The UAW is asking GM's nearly 46,000 US factory workers to stop working until further notice. In the wake of the financial crisis, unions had given the big carmakers concessions in their contracts, such as cuts to their healthcare and pension bills, helping GM reduce costs as it clawed its way out of bankruptcy.

The United Auto Workers said their members at General Motors facilities would launch a nation-wide strike midnight after contract talks reached an impasse. Union vice president Terry Dittes announced the pending work stoppage on Sunday (September 15). (SOUNDBITE) (English) UAW VICE PRESIDENT TERRY DITTES, SAYING: "What we're asking of General Motors is simple, and fair. We are standing up for fair wages, we are standing up for affordable, quality healthcare. We are standing up for our share of the profits." In a tweet Sunday, GM defended its offer to the UAW, saying they should come together and secure their shared future. A broad strike by the union's roughly 48,000 members would be the first such action at GM in 12 years. It would challenge both the union and GM Chief Executive Mary Barra at a time when the U.S. auto industry is facing a slowdown in sales, and rising costs for launching electric vehicles and curbing emissions. It would also test the union, which has been building up reserves in preparation for possible industrial action. Strike pay provided by the UAW is just $250 per week. That is far below workers' normal wages. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UAW VICE PRESIDENT TERRY DITTES, SAYING: "This is our last resort. It represents great sacrifice and great courage on the part of our members and all of us." GM's workers last went out on a brief two-day strike in 2007 during contract talks. A more painful strike occurred in Flint, Michigan, in 1998, lasting 54 days and costing the No. 1 U.S. automaker more than $2 billion.
