The Teamsters will be there for autoworkers if the UAW goes on strike tonight.“The Teamsters won’t be transporting General Motors vehicles during the United Auto Workers’ strike.

International Brotherhood of Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa said on Sunday that its members will stand in solidarity with the UAW and honor its picket lines as the union begins a strike against GM at midnight.

‘Teamsters and the UAW have a decades-long relationship of having each other’s back,’ Hoffa said.

Teamsters spokesman Bret Caldwell said 1,000 of its members will refuse to transport GM vehicles to dealerships as a show of solidarity during the strike.

About 49,000 UAW members are set to begin a strike Sunday night after the union failed to reach a new labor agreement with GM by the Saturday night deadline.”
