UAW's Strike Against GM, Whatever the Outcome, Veers Into Unchartered Territory
UAW's Strike Against GM, Whatever the Outcome, Veers Into Unchartered Territory
The strike by the United Auto Workers union against General Motors Co., whatever its conclusion, already is into uncharted territory. GM, ahead of the walkout, broke with precedent and went public with details of its offer for a new contract. The union, meanwhile, is conducting the negotiations while it’s being investigated by federal authorities for corruption. And all of this is happening under the watch of a president who likes to tell the auto industry what he thinks it should do. Auto industry talks in the 21st century have taken a turn.

Continuous Insulation Resistance Testing Boosts Motor Productivity
Continuous Insulation Resistance Testing Boosts Motor Productivity
For decades, plant personnel have performed insulation resistance tests with handheld megohmmeters to prevent motor failures that lead to costly unplanned shutdowns, failure-to-produce penalties and rewinding repairs. However, these tests only provide a “snapshot” of motor health. With so much at risk, plant managers are recognizing the value of continuous megohm monitoring of insulation resistance that initiates the moment the motor is off until it is re-started.
