UAW blasts Gen­eral Mo­tors plan to sell Chi­nese-made cars in Amer­ica

The China Post - - WORLD BUSINESS -

The United Auto Work­ers union blasted Gen­eral Mo­tors Tues­day for con­sid­er­ing selling Chi­nese-built Buick En­vi­sions in the United States and vowed to try to kill the plan dur­ing on­go­ing con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions.

“Af­ter the sac­ri­fices made by U.S. taxpayers and the U.S. work­force to make Gen­eral Mo­tors the prof­itable qual­ity com­pany it is to­day, UAW mem­bers are dis­ap­pointed with the tonedeaf spec­u­la­tion that the En­vi­sion would be im­ported from China,” said Cindy Estrada, the UAW vice pres­i­dent re­spon­si­ble for the union’s re­la­tions with GM.

“GM should stand by its dec­la­ra­tion that it will build where it sells,” Estrada said in a state­ment.

GM spokesman Nick Richards said re­ports about im­port­ing the En­vi­sion, a com­pact sport util­ity ve­hi­cle GM put on sale in main­land China in 2014, are “spec­u­la­tive.”
