Chrysler News-UAW’s Gettelfinger opposes GM, Chrysler merger
Not surprisingly, United Auto Workers chief Ron Gettelfinger said today that he would oppose a potential merger between General Motors and Chrysler LLC on the grounds that it would inevitably mean job losses for both companies. Gettelfinger says he hasn’t had any formal discussions on the matter with anyone from GM or Chrysler, however.
“I personally would not want to see anything that would result in a consolidation. That would mean the elimination of additional jobs,” Gettelfinger said during a WWJ-AM political Webcast.
Gettelfinger also wasn’t happy about GM’s decision to end SUV production early in Janesville, Wisconsin, on December 23 - a move that affects more than 2,500 union workers.
“Any time we see a facility go down, we suffer with the people because we know the impact that it’s going to have on their lives,” he said.
