US: Simultaneous strikes hit ‘Big Three’ car manufacturers

The United Auto Workers union has announced the start of a strike at three factories. The move comes as a deadline expired to reach a deal with employers.

Thousands of workers from the United Auto Workers (UAW) union began strikes on Thursday night at three factories belonging to the so-called “Detroit Three” — Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler parent Stellantis.

UAW President Shawn Fain announced the strike at three major car manufacturers two hours before the midnight contract expired.

Amid persistent inflation, the union is hoping it can force through pay gains from the top three US car manufacturers.

“The UAW Stand Up Strike begins at all three of the Big Three,” the union said in a post on social media platform X, adding that workers were striking at three separate plants.


“Tonight, for the first time in our history, we will strike all three of the Big Three at once,” Fain said.

Workers are set to strike at one plant at each company: a GM plant in Wentzville, Missouri; a Stellantis facility in Toledo, Ohio; and a Ford plant in Wayne, Michigan.

The stoppages will be restricted to final assembly work and paint operations.
