UAW GM Member Strike Instructions

UAW GM Member Strike Assignments - 09/12/2019

In the event UAW Local 1853 Spring Hill Manufacturing GM Unit is affected by a Strike for the UAW/GM National Contract, please click on the "View/Download UAW GM Member Strike Instructions" above. Strike assignments are 4 hours per week. To view assignments, please click on the link above "UAW GM Member Strike Assignments – 09/12/2019".

Strike Duties will begin immediately when a Strike is called for the Spring Hill location of the UAW GM Unit. This will be considered DAY 1 as referenced in the UAW GM Member Strike Assignments – 09/12/2019.

All assigned to duties at the time the strike begins will need to report directly to the Union Hall to be taken to their location.

For example if the strike begins at 8:00 am, those assigned to ‘DAY 1, 8:00am’ will need to report directly for strike duty and report to the Union Hall. This will be the start of the assignment rotation plan found on the UAW GM Member Strike Assignments - 09/12/2019 link. Under this same example, those assigned to duty prior to Day 1, 8:00am', will report on the 8th day of the strike according to the Day 1 scheduled times starting at 12:00am and begin their duty assignment. It is important to realize this is a rolling schedule based on 7 days. 

Strike Benefit Registration will begin approximately 48-72 hours at the Union Hall (banquet hall) after the strike actually begins. This will be considered ‘DAY 1’ registration and for those with counselor duty. Please watch this website for the actual ‘Day 1’ of Strike Benefit registration.

Strike assignments locations are as follows:

  • South Gate – is the Southern entrance to the Spring Hill Manufacturing plant located off Highway US 31.
  • North Gate – is the Northern entrance to the Spring Hill Manufacturing plant located off Highway US 31.
  • Haynes Haven – is the old visitor center entrance located approximately halfway between the North and South Gates.
  • Sergeant at Arms – is located at the Union Hall.
  • Counselor – is located at the Union Hall.
  • Union Hall – is located at the Union Hall.

Each of these locations has a Captain assigned to a four-hour block of time per week. The only exceptions are those assigned as Counselors. The Captain’s assignment along with their location duty is to take role and have each person assigned to that location sign in.

Again, Strike Duties will begin immediately when a Strike is called for the Spring Hill location of the UAW GM Unit. Strike Benefit ‘Day 1’ registration will begin approximately 48-72 hours after the actual strike begins.
