Bob Nardelli, XLR-8 founder, former Chrysler CEO and former Home Depot CEO, joins FOX Business to discuss the United Auto Workers strike and the potential deal between the union and General Motors.

In this webinar, rank-and-file autoworkers debated whether to support the agreement and go back to work, or vote it down and stay out on the picket lines in the hope of achieving something better.

Tony Mann, president of UAW Local 668, confirmed that 75 percent of hourly workers at the facility and 73 percent of skilled trades employees, approved the tentative agreement, which GM workers around the country are voting on this week. "There is a chance they could have some pushback".
