DETROIT—Some 3,600 auto workers at five American Axle & Manufacturing plants in Michigan and New York walked off the job February 26 to protest a company proposal for steep wage and benefits cuts for current workers and retirees. As of March 4, six other auto plants had closed due to lack of parts because of the strike. Above, members of United Auto Workers Local 235 picket the Detroit plant.
