Local Unions React to Henderson Resignation

Local Unions React to Henderson Resignation



Last Update: 6:56 am


United Auto Workers Union leaders at General Motors in Lordstown believe the sudden resignation of Fritz Henderson as GM CEO will have no impact here. 


UAW Local 1112 President Jim Graham and UAW Local 1714 President Dave Green both say they’re going to focus all their energies on Lordstown’s new product, the Chevy Cruze, which is set to be unveiled Wednesday in California.

"The only thing we can do is continue to build quality cars, learn from our mistakes, and proceed into the future," said Graham.  "That’s our only option."

Dave Green believes folks locally have nothing to worry about when it comes to Henderson’s departure.  "He’s one guy," Green said.  "The corporation is made up of tens of thousands of people.  We’ve got thousands here locally.  And the folks here that are concerned, shouldn’t be.  This is not going to impact the Cruze at all."
