General Motors Cuts Health Insurance for 50,000 Striking Workers

HeadlineSep 18, 2019

General Motors has cut off health insurance for the nearly 50,000 people on picket lines across the country demanding better working conditions and fair pay. The news came Tuesday, just one day after UAW members kicked off the strike by walking out of more than 50 GM facilities. We’ll have more on the GM strike later with longtime labor reporter Steven Greenhouse.
