Following in the footsteps of some of their brethren working in Ford plants, union workers who drive GM vehicles to work at the GM assembly plant in Arlington, Texas will now receive preferential parking spots. The policy started on Monday.

“We have to support the company that gives us paychecks,” said spokesperson Wendy Sabo. “We do that by buying the vehicles we produce.”

The policy was implemented after GM plant managers, who surveyed the employees, found eighty-five percent supported such a parking policy. According to the article and Sabo, it is strictly for the Arlington plant: there is no widespread corporate policy from the automaker. However, she acknowledge, such local rules are being discussed at other GM plants.
