Union says strike won't affect W.Va. GM center

June 12, 1998

Jim Rogers, president of UAW Local 1590, which represents more than 900 GM workers in the Martinsburg, W.Va., distribution and processing center, said Thursday night that the fact that a second GM plant has gone out on strike would have little immediate effect on the local plant.

He said if the strike continues for an extended period, parts availability for Martinsburg could be affected.

Rogers and Ed Lambert, shop chairman in Martinsburg, said there is no chance of a sympathy strike by local workers. Each plant deals with its own issues, Rogers said.

The Martinsburg plant is one of 21 distribution and processing centers maintained by GM in the United States.
