The UAW Vice President Terry Dittes released a video, in addition, a statement about the ongoing strike with General Motors this morning. 

In the statement, the UAW is urging Gm 'to stop playing games at the expense of workers." 

That statement goes on to say that GM has not taken the unions 48,000 members seriously since the beginning, and has instead tried to undermine them and their efforts. 

The UAW says its members are ready to get back to work but GM is stalling, and that stalling is calling families to suffer across the country.
