Martinsburg GM parts facility now part of UAW strike

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Union workers at a General Motors location in Martinsburg hit the picket lines Friday afternoon as part of the ongoing UAW strike against the big three automakers.

UAW President Shawn Fain announced Friday union workers at an additional 38 sites across the U.S. would begin striking at noon on Friday.

“At noon Eastern today, all parts distributions centers at General Motors and Stellantis will be on strike,” the statement from 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.”

The expanded locations include the GM Martinsburg Parts Distribution located on Caperton Blvd. in Martinsburg.

The strike began last week at three plants in Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
