GM's Lordstown plant builds the Chevrolet Cruze, but when plant management needed the cars coming off the line repaired, it didn't use plant workers; it sent the cars to an outside repair shop. That didn't make UAW leadership happy. The union's response was to draw up a leaflet telling workers that "management is not your friend," and to take their discontent to the press with the message that things haven't really changed.

Local 112 president said the issue was resolved the next day. For its part, General Motors says it has met with the UAW and a "resolution [is] expected soon." The situation was blamed on the pressure that management and labor are under to get the Cruze right. From the outside, this doesn't look like a productive way to achieve that end.
