DETROIT - Feb 16 United Auto Workers President
Dennis Williams said on Thursday the union plans to step up its
efforts to convince U.S. consumers not to buy vehicles built in
other countries, including those sold by the Detroit automakers.
"If it's not made in America, don't buy it," Williams said
during a briefing for reporters at the union's Detroit
headquarters, responding to a question about General Motors Co's
Chevrolet Cruze hatchback, made in Mexico, and the Buick
Envision sport utility, which GM imports from China.
The UAW is working on an advertising campaign promote the
buy America message, Williams said. "Boycotts may be coming
back," he said.
