ASOTRECOL, the association of injured Colombian workers who were wrongfully fired by GM due to workplace injuries, announced that their sixth attempt at mediation with GM Colmotores in Colombia ended without a settlement.

These workers urgently need your help to ensure that GM returns to the negotiating table, this time with an offer in hand that meets their simple demands: just compensation for their workplace injuries and reintegration into GM's workforce or an acceptable financial settlement.
