On Tuesday, the United Auto Workers labor union ordered 5,000 workers to walk off General Motors’ Arlington Assembly plant in Texas.
The facility is where GM manufactures its popular full-size SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, and the GMC Yukon.
The strike was issued just hours after GM released its third quarter earnings report, which showed the automaker actually increased earnings amid the UAW’s ongoing five-week strike.
“Another record quarter, another record year. As we’ve said for months: record profits equal record contracts,” said UAW President Shawn Fain. “It’s time GM workers, and the whole working class, get their fair share.”
