The strike that started at
on Monday came at a particularly bad time for the company's new products.
new product offensive is getting into high gear this fall with a slew of eagerly awaited cars and trucks. Among the
that the company is just about to launch are the new
version), the mild hybrid version of the new
and, soon, the Two-Mode hybrid
. The Two-Mode hybrids are still a couple of months away and if the strike lasts long enough to affect them they could be the least of GM's problems. Hopefully the company and union can settle their differences quickly so that these important new models can come to market.
It looks it's over.
