...if you work for GM or a supplier? My dad worked for Motor Wheel in Lansing for like 11 years back in the day, and he said when they went on strike, we got harassed but walked past them cuz he wanted to work.

Being forced to join the union depends on what state the plant, buisness, etc. is located. Texas is a work at will state, and where I work anyway, union participation is not mandatory. I am not however, in the auto buisness. My uneducated guess would be the truck plant in Arlington, would not be mandatory, as IIRC in this state, an employee may not be forced to be a member of one.
