06:19 EDTGMUAW concerned over auto production moving to Mexico, NYT says
The greatest concern for the United Automobile Workers, or UAW, union as it enters discussions on new contracts with Detroit auto makers Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), and General Motors (GM) is losing vehicle production to lower-wage countries such as Mexico, the New York Times reports. Union president Dennis Williams was upset over comments last week that suggested that Ford was considering sending work to Mexico in an effort to cut costs, the report says. "I will save my comments on Ford for when we open up negotiations,” Mr. Williams said. “But it is always concerning to me when any company invests outside the United States.” Reference Link
