President’s Message

Statement on Nationwide UAW Strike


TN AFL-CIO President Billy Dycus issued the following statement on the United Auto Workers’ strike against General Motors.

“The Tennessee AFL-CIO stands in solidarity with our UAW brothers and sisters across the state and throughout the country. While GM’s CEO took home a multi-million dollar paycheck last year, the company’s workers did not see the same rewards. This underscores what is already well-known: corporate greed is out of control and workers have had enough.

Bottom line: this strike is about dignity, not just for UAW members but for all working families. No employee should struggle to get by when its employer is boasting about record-breaking profits. We will continue to support these workers in any way that we can until GM does its job and acknowledges the basic rights that they deserve.”
