She is a globally recognized expert on automotive labor union issues and lectures regularly on the subject. She has also served in government and industry roles and has published articles in labor and management publications. Speaker’s Synopsis: Michigan is the nation’s top producer of light vehicles and automotive parts and, if the state were an independent country, it would be the 10th largest vehicle producer in the world. Michigan is also the top state for both automotive and parts imports and exports—trade is critically important to the health of the industry and the state. A lot has changed in the industry’s first hundred or so years, though trade remains critically important. Automotive competition is global—with long and complicated supply chains that stretch around the world in support of the automotive sector. This presentation will provide an overview of Michigan’s largest manufacturing sector in the context of current U.S. trade policies and negotiations.
