Well that didn’t take long.

According to the United Auto Workers’ Facebook page, General Motors will be the target for the union’s next negotiations. The automaker’s fat profits and long-delayed raises for veteran workers will likely be targets for the union when it heads to the table to negotiate.

The union may also look to bring up wages for newer-hired Tier 2 workers at the automaker. Roughly 20 percent of the workforce is paid at the lower, hourly scale — less than Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ 40 percent and Ford’s 27 percent.

The union represents 52,700 workers at GM.

The union posted a photo on its Facebook page that said, “It’s Go Time.”  (Insert your own GM joke here.)

    I having a feeling Ford is up last so that management doesn’t have a lot of wiggle room against precedent set by the other two companies. I’ve long suspected that Ford is the most likely of the Big 3 to tell the UAW to take a hike if negotiations break down, so keeping the process easy is probably a good plan.
