Supporters of the GM UAW strike rallied and sang in San Leandro on 9/28/19 as part of an international day of action at GM dealerships.

Many drivers showed solidarity by honking their horns against two tiers and the use of temporary workers by GM. Also, a worker at the dealership said that the strike parts shortage was stopping repairs on their GM vehicles.
