ClickOnDetroit Morning Briefing -- Sept. 16, 2019
Here are this morning's top stories
The union workers went on strike Sunday night after negotiations broke down with the automaker. A couple dozen union workers formed a picket line outside the Lake Orion plant Monday morning, blocking the vehicles of other workers who were reporting to their jobs. Negotiations will get underway again by 10 a.m. Monday.
Now the talks will be in earnest on Monday. It appears the logjam between the two sides has been broken after the strike announcement and subsequent GM statement on negotiations.
The automaker is expected to lose $250 million a day at its assembly plants. UAW members who show up at the picket line will get $250 a week.
This is the largest strike against any U.S. business since 2007.

From Brandon Roux:
We have a few light rain showers this morning and patchy fog around Metro Detroit this morning and that will be the case through about 8 a.m. Then, it's mostly cloudy and a bit muggy most of the day with highs in the mid to maybe upper 70s with light winds N 5-10 mph.
