Pressure for justice: GM dealership visits

A group of injured Colombian workers on hunger strike who were wrongfully fired by GM due to workplace injuries have called on people across the country to take action to demand justice from GM.

These workers urgently need your help to ensure that GM returns to the negotiating table, this time with an offer in hand that meets their simple demands: just compensation for their workplace injuries and reintegration into GM’s workforce or an acceptable financial settlement.

Here's how you can be part of our global days of action:

  1. Take action at your local GM dealership. Download and edit this sample letter expressing concern about the situation of Colombian GM workers and ask them to communicate your concerns to GM in Detroit. These dealerships are locally owned, but they can help us get the message to GM in Detroit that people around the country are watching this situation closely. You can also take some other materials with you, such as this list of more than 5,000 people who have called on GM to reach a just settlement with the workers and this letter from over 100 faith leaders. You can also leaflet outside the dealership with this leaflet. See the map below for a list of dealerships that will be visited.

    Make sure you email us to let us know about your visit so we can add it to our map of actions.

  2. Send a message to GM Executives and U.S. government officials calling on the company to immediately return to negotiations with GM workers. Click here to send your message now.

  3. Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook to get important updates about the GM case and our action plans.
