UAW Members Back at General Dynamics Jobs

Associated Press

Most unionized tank builders returned to the job at General Dynamics plants in three states Wednesday after voting to end a seven-week strike that idled 5,000 workers. But about 10% of the employees will not be recalled until the giant defense contractor reaches full production during the next few weeks, company spokesman William Sheil said.

"As various assembly-line tasks are phased back into the manufacturing process, those employees not currently working will be recalled," Sheil said.

General Dynamics is the sole supplier of the Army's M1 and M1A battle tanks.
