The Lansing Redistribution Center is represented by UAW Local 1753. According to GM it has 207 employees. GM says the Lansing Redistribution Center “work(s) to replenish inventory at part distribution centers and fulfill customer referral & dangerous goods orders.”

When speaking about GM and Stellantis Fain said, “We will shut down parts distribution until those two companies come to their senses and come to the table with a serious offer.”

“I’m proud to stand with the men and women of the @UAW Local 1753 in my district,” Congresswoman and Senatorial candidate Elissa Slotkin said Friday.

Fain said workers have made progress in negotiations with Ford since a targeted strike began at the Big Three auto companies last week, according to The Hill.

“At GM and Stellantis, it’s a different story,” Fain said. “We invite and encourage everyone who supports our case to join us on the picket line, from our friends and families all the way up to the president of the United States. We invite you to join us in our fight.”
