UAW Strike Impacts Detroit Three Automakers

Access Unlocked Friday September 15, 2023 The United Auto Workers (UAW) union is on strike impacting General Motors assembly plant in Wentzville, Missouri, a Stellantis (Chrysler’s parent company) assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio, and part of a Ford plant in Wayne, Michigan.

The strike comes after an agreement failed to be reached on a new contract on Thursday.

There are a total of 145,000 UAW members, however that does not mean everyone will strike.

“If we don’t get better offers and… take care of the members’ needs, we’re going to amp this up even more,” UAW President Shawn Fain told CBS News talk show “Face the Nation,” saying General Motors, Ford and Stellantis have “no excuse” for not resolving salary disputes given their massive profits of recent years.
