Deets . . .
"At Fairfax, UAW Local 31 officials recently were forced to acknowledge that there were a number of cases inside the plant, in the face of widespread anger which has been building up among workers over the lack of information on infections. The local’s “Shop Update” newsletter on November 10 stated that there were 10 new cases in the plant across five departments, affecting both the first and second shifts. Without explaining the timeframe for the emergence of the cases, the report stated that “several” workers had been sent out for testing.
"Seeking to justify withholding further details which would help workers determine whether they had been exposed, the UAW made perfunctory and fraudulent references to “privacy laws,” HIPAA restrictions and COVID-19 guidelines.
"The Fairfax worker said that the limited information released by GM and the UAW concealed the true scope of the virus’s spread throughout the plant. “We know that the shop chairman’s reports are inaccurate, they say such and such person in one area or another,” said Sam. (Sam’s real name is not being used to protect him from retaliation.) “We know of other cases throughout the plant. Word spreads mouth to mouth, and people post it on Facebook as soon as they go out.
“GM at the local level, they’re hiding the actual numbers of COVID. They don’t report tests done outside the plant, only those through the plant’s medical department. GM’s one of the biggest liars out there. I’m sure there’s a lot of cases out there they don’t want us to know about. As it gets colder and colder, it’s going to get worse.”
