UAW strikes GM’s Chevrolet Malibu plant in Fairfax

The UAW went on strike this morning at GM’s Fairfax assmebly plant which employs around 2,600 workers and produces GM’s best-selling Chevrolet Malibu sedan. According to a secretary at UAW Local 31, the strike came after GM failed to reach a local operating contract with the union.

The strike will hurt the supply of Malibu sedan which, at the end of April, had just a 36-day supply nationally. The Fairfax plant produces about 574 Malibu sedans a day along with the Saturn Aura sedan.

The Orion, Michigan plant already has a local agreement and makes about 388 Malibus a day along with the Pontiac G6.
