Strike Leads to Layoff of GM Custodians

September 30, 2019

The two-week strike of General Motors Co. (GM) automobile assemblers has led to the layoff of 66 maintenance workers at the Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas, Hays Post reports.

The workers were laid off earlier this month because their service was not deemed critical while most facility workers were on the picket line. The affected custodians are represented by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, which is currently working with the workers’ employer, a building services contractor, to secure higher wages and increased benefits.

A letter announcing the layoffs revealed that custodial workers at other GM facilities may also be at risk of layoffs.
