UAW president asks union members to be ready to strike

“The UAW president says he’s throwing contract proposals in the trash can, and he’s asking the 12,000 Ford workers in the area to be ready to not go to work. Three major automakers and the UAW have six days to reach a deal to avoid a strike. The potential fallout is 146,000 total employees off the assembly lines and a hit to the economy. On Friday, UAW president Shawn Fain released an unapologetic update on their demands during an online video that lasted for 20 minutes. … The demands cover tiers, wages, cost of living adjustments, profit sharing, temporary workers, job security, work-life balance and retirees.” (09/09/23)
