UAW lodges objection to GM announcement. The United Auto Workers (UAW) in December lodged a formal objection to General Motors' (GM) plan to close four American auto plants in 2019. The complaint objected to what the union called GM's unilateral decision on the future of those facilities. The UAW said the decision was made without the union's agreement, which it says is required by the 2015 National Agreement. "We have been clear that the UAW will leave no stone unturned and use any and all resources available to us regarding the future of these plants," UAW President Gary Jones said. He added that UAW members across the country "are committed to using every means available to us on behalf of our brothers and sisters" at the plants in Lordstown, Ohio; Hamtramck, Michigan; Baltimore, Maryland; and Warren, Michigan.
