Photos: GM workers take historic strike action
Members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) 722 on the 5th day of their strike and picket outside the General Motors (GM) Parts Distribution Center in Hudson, Wisconsin on September 20.
49,000 UAW members are taking their first national strike in decades, hoping to win a pattern-setting contract, which will set the standard for negotiations with other car makers.
While unionised Teamster truck drivers have refused to cross the picket line, strikers at parts distribution centres face off with non-union transport companies.
