Texas Union Chief Says GM Strike Was Last Resort

The union leader of the General Motors plant in Arlington says the United Auto Workers strike is a last resort and has no idea how long it will last.

About 2,500 employees at the Texas plant join thousands of others striking at GM plants around the country in the first nationwide strike since 1976.

Local UAW leader Enrique "J.R." Flores says neither side likes the strike and it hurts both sides, but various issues just couldn't be resolved. He says the union is prepared to help striking employees with money from strike funds.
