More than 25,000 auto workers are now striking against General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis as negotiations stall over worries that President Joe Biden’s Electric Vehicle (EV) mandates will spur massive job losses and wage cuts down the road.
United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain announced that about 7,000 auto workers at GM’s Lansing Delta Township Assembly in Lansing, Michigan, and Ford’s Chicago Assembly in Chicago, Illinois, were joining the strike against the Big Three.
The UAW strike now includes auto workers at 43 plants across 21 states. Meanwhile, Fain said the UAW is making significant progress with Stellantis.
