[WATCH] UAW Calls Off Nexteer Strike, Members Complain of Disorganization, Confusion

Following the announcement of the strike’s cessation on the union’s Facebook page, members commented on their confusion, as well as complained of the union’s seeming disorganization.

SAGINAW, MI—Within one day of calling over three thousand workers out on strike against Nexteer Automotive, the union called off its strike saying it had reached a new tentative agreement.
“The UAW International, which took over negotiations Tuesday morning, instructed Local 699 to send its 3,350 members back to work without a contract and without any opportunity to vote on the end of the strike,” reports WSWS’ Jerry White

The new tentative contract offer still needs to be ratified by the membership. However, if the UAW has the same type of skepticism it had weeks ago with the Detroit Three contracts, passage may be difficult.
