GM Issues Statement On UAW Strike

The General's issued a release a few minutes ago on the UAW strike that began at 11:00 AM today. It's short and it's sweet and it doesn't say a whole lot. Here's the full scoop straight from the General's mouth right below the jump:

GM statement regarding UAW work stoppage

We are disappointed in the UAW's decision to call a national strike.

The bargaining involves complex, difficult issues that affect the job security of our U.S. work force and the long-term viability of the company. We are fully committed to working with the UAW to develop solutions together to address the competitive challenges facing General Motors.

We will continue focusing our efforts on reaching an agreement as soon as possible.
