Default Are the dealerships unionized by UAW?

Someone was telling me that the employees of each dealership are all members of the UAW. I thought the UAW only represented people that worked at the factory. Can anyone tell me if I'm wrong?

Dealerships are not UAW members. Only the people working in the plants including cafeteria staff.
