This presentation focuses on the crisis facing the domestic auto industry and in particular the recent near bankruptcy and subsequent federal government bridge loans to General Motors and Chrysler. The troubles in the auto sector have had enormous consequences for the UAW, auto workers, and the communities where auto production had been concentrated.

Our speakers provided presentations on the labor relations aspects of the current crisis, information about how unions and workers in other countries are responding to similar crises, and the implications of the current crisis on autoworker pensions and security.
