Toyota-GM factory faces possible strike


    Toyota-GM factory faces possible strike:

    It will be interesting to see if Toyota would ever walk away from NUMMI, even as (or because) they are building more plants of their own throughout North America.

    “The plant has a strong track record of quality, productivity and cooperation, and executives have said they expect to keep the partnership going.

    But some could make the argument that the plant's strategic usefulness has been exhausted: Toyota has learned about the quality of American workers and GM has learned about Toyota's manufacturing practices.”
