United Auto Workers go on strike against Ford, GM, Stellantis
The contract between the Big Three automakers—Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis—and the United Auto Workers (UAW) union has expired, leading to one of the largest strikes the U.S. has seen in years. Approximately 12,700 workers at three factories in Missouri, Michigan, and Ohio have gone on strike, demanding a 36% pay increase over a four-year contract, pension benefits for all employees, limited use of temporary workers, more paid time off, and more job protections. The strike is projected to disrupt the domestic auto industry, impact car prices, and lead to significant financial losses.
