Dr. Woody Myers Visits Bedford GM Picket Line

Bedford, IND – Indiana Candidate for Governor Dr. Woody Myers visited the United Auto Workers (UAW) picket lines over the weekend in Bedford to express support for striking General Motors (GM) workers.    

Myers took snacks and drinks for third-shift striking workers and told them he stands with labor. 

“The work our unions accomplish helps us all,” said Myers. “They set improved safety standards to protect all workers and they establish benefit standards that serve all workers and their families.”

Myers also met with Local UAW Local 440 President Kevin Hutchinson and UAW Servicing Representative Jack Woods to discuss the issues behind the strike. 

“I stand with UAW members as they push General Motors’ leadership hard for better wages and benefits, now that GM has recovered economically and regained profitability,” said Myers.

Myers has worked with union leaders to improve benefits for working families throughout his career—including District Council 37, SEIU 1199, the Teamsters, and when he led health care programs for Ford Motor Company, the United Auto Workers and their many local affiliates.
