If a compromise is not struck, the UAW will target strikes at Ford

According to United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain, if the Big Three automakers GM, Ford, and Stellantis. do not negotiate tentative labor agreements with the auto workers, the union will strike simultaneously at midnight against all three of them.

In a Facebook live broadcast, Fain announce that tonight would mark the first time in our history that all three of the “big three” will be struck simultaneously. Three assembly plants were single out for attacks: a Ford plant in Wayne, Michigan; a Stellantis plant in Toledo; and a GM plant in Wentzville, Missouri.

Production at General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis, which makes cars under the Jeep, Ram, Dodge, and Chrysler brands for North America, might halt even with only three local unions on strike.


The stakes for a strike, whether at one business, two companies, or all three, are high for the union and beyond: disruptions to the local and global economies, potential financial hardship for the workers, and perhaps most importantly, a glimpse into the future of manufacturing jobs in the United States.

Throughout the Facebook event, Fain remarked, “If we need to go all out, we will.” “Everything is up for discussion.”

On Thursday, the automakers and the union were in the final stages of their negotiations. On Thursday afternoon, GM presented a new offer that matched Ford’s offer and included a 20% raise.

Ford Thursday night attributed the deadlock at the negotiating table to the union.

The business issued the following statement: “Unfortunately, the UAW’s counterproposal today showed little movement from the union’s first requests filed on August 3. Ford’s existing UAW-relate labor expenses. Which currently much higher than those of Tesla, Toyota, and other foreign own. Manufacturers in the United States that use non unionize labor, would more than quadruple if the idea to put into place.
