“UAW President Shawn Fain announced a new strike date for the Big Three automakers. Fain gave the automakers a stern ultimatum in a recorded message recorded on Facebook. The new deadline will be Friday (Sept. 22) at 12 p.m. If Ford, General Motors, or Stellantis do not make substantial progress towards a fair agreement, the UAW said they will call on more members to join the Stand Up Strike. ‘If we do not make serious progress by Noon Friday, Sept. 22, more locals will be called on to stand up and go on strike.’ … The UAW characterized its talks with Ford as reasonably productive but offered no critique of talks with Stellantis and General Motors, only that there had been discussions.” (09/19/23)
