Some key Democrats from Michigan, including Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Sen. Gary Peters and U.S. Reps. Debbie Dingell, Dan Kildee and Rashida Tlaib made clear on Monday that they support the United Auto Workers members in their strike against General Motors, which began at midnight Sunday.

In a statement, Dingell said:

"There is no place I would rather be than standing in solidarity with UAW workers in their fight for fair wages, healthcare, pensions and strong benefits. Through thick and thin, UAW workers have devoted themselves to building quality product. Now GM must demonstrate their commitment to the hard-working men and women who have given everything to build for GM’s success.
