Energy: The UAW Strikes Against GM -- What It Means for Investors

On Monday, the United Auto Workers (UAW) announced a nationwide strike against General Motors (GM), the first nationwide strike from the union since 2007. This strike occurs at an interesting time for the industry, with automakers having enjoyed a period of strong profits during the recovery from the global financial crisis but facing significant upcoming investments in electric and autonomous vehicles as well as a slowing global automotive market. These conditions appear like the perfect recipe for what could be a prolonged strike. Motley Fool Senior Automotive Analyst John Rosevear joins the show to break down what we know about the strikes so far and what it means for the industry. Listen to the end for updates on the merger talks between Renault and Fiat-Chrysler and the latest EV announcements from European automakers.  

Stocks Mentioned: GM, F, FCAU, VWAGY, DMLRY, POAHY, HMC
