Quote from GMNA Manufacturing and Labor Relations Vice President Cathy Clegg
“GM remains committed to investing in its U.S. operations. With these latest projects we have announced investments of $2.2 billion in 2016, allowing us to support the production of future engines and vehicles.”
Quote from UAW GM Vice President Cindy Estrada
"The UAW's negotiations with GM to reinvest in the Tonawanda, Rochester, Lockport and Parma plants have paid off not only for our members but also for those communities. Our strategic bargaining efforts will keep and grow great American auto manufacturing jobs in places that have seen too much manufacturing disappear and will solidify the job security our members deserve."
