Tensions mount as American Axle strike enters 10th week

30 April 2008

The American Axle strike enters a tenth week. It will soon exceed the length of the historic strike against GM in 1970. This week workers circulated a petition to the UAW requesting an increase in strike pay from $200 per week to $300. The WSWS spoke to workers on the picket lines in Detroit.
