...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.

Things may have changed, but it used to be foremans and higher-ups were "company men" and they were not UAW members. You could start out a UAW member and then advance. From what I understand though, these jobs were/are not exactly low stress. So... you could actually be forced to leave the union if you want a "better" job.
