More Reports on Lordstown  

I just found a report, 8 hours old, that the GM plant in Lordstown is still working despite the previous reports that the plant would run out of parts sometime Tuesday, today. From the ABC 33 newsroom:

The official line from General Motors is it remains "business as usual" for the Lordstown complex..despite a lingering strike by autoworkers with American Axel in Detroit..which enters its 8th week tomorrow...

While GM spokesman Dan Flores admits the walkout is having an impact on GM's production, he stops short of suggesting the struggling automaker will step-in to get the strike resolved, telling First News "fundamentally, this is a labor dispute between American Axel and the UAW."

Meantime, local union leaders are trying to keep the rumors and speculation of a plant shutdown from getting out of control. UAW Local 1112 President Jim Graham says that unless management tells his members to stay home, "we're working."
