Statement from UAW Vice President Terry

Dittes, Director of the UAW-GM Department
on GM Announcement

In response to General Motors’ announcement today, the UAW’s position is

unequivocal: General Motors should assign a product to the Lordstown facility
and continue operating it.
A federal lawsuit filed by the UAW over the closing of the Lordstown, Baltimore
and Warren facilities is still pending, and the UAW will continue its effort to
protect the contractual rights of its members at these locations.
The parties regularly discuss product placement issues during National
Negotiations which will begin in July of this year. We will monitor this situation as
it develops to determine what course of action will most benefit UAW-
represented workers at General Motors.
