Workers at GM’s plant in Sao Jose dos Campos in Sao Paulo state approved a strike after rejecting GM’s latest profit sharing proposal. The 24 hour strike will cost GM production of 950 vehicles.
“GM is living its best moment, with consecutive records of production,” said Vivaldo Moreira Araujo, president of the Sindicato dos Metalurgicos de Sao Jose dos Campos. “Today’s strike was only the first step.”
GM is the third-largest auto maker in Brazil. Its main competitors in the local market are Fiat, Volkswagen and Ford Motor in first, second and fourth place, respectively.
