Delphi workers authorize UAW to strike

United Auto Workers members at 21 Delphi plants have overwhelmingly voted to authorize the union leadership to call a strike, according to a UAW statement released Tuesday.
The UAW has threatened a strike if Bankruptcy Judge Robert Drain allows Delphi to unilaterally void its labor contracts. Hearings on Delphi's motion were held for the first time last week, and will reconvene May 24. A decision on the motion is unlikely before late June, but in the meantime, the judge has ordered the two sides to continue negotiating toward a consensus solution.

As has been the case, we can't even guess how this mess will play out, but the irresistable force that is Delphi's management and the immoveable object that is the UAW are inching ever closer to the big S word.
