With negotiations at General Motors complete and talks at Ford on hold, the United Auto Workers union is moving on Chrysler with an old weapon in its pocket — a strike threat.

UAW members have authorized a strike against a key engine plant, setting the stage for a possible end run around the no-strike clause embedded in the 2009 agreement with the federal government which salvaged Chrysler Group from bankruptcy, union officials confirmed Monday.

“This doesn’t mean there is going to be a strike,” Robert Cabina, president of UAW Local 723 in Monroe, Michigan, told AFP.
