About our UAW news
Latest news on the UAW, a labor union that represents workers in the auto, aerospace and agricultural industries in the US and Canada. It is currently in contract negotiations with the three major automakers: GM, Ford and Stellantis. The union is demanding significant wage increases, better health care benefits, more job security and a greater share of the companies' profits.
The UAW is hoping to use its bargaining power to reverse some of the concessions it made in previous contracts during the financial crisis and the pandemic. The union is also facing some internal challenges, such as corruption scandals, declining membership and a federal takeover. The UAW strike could be a tipping point for the US labor movement, which has seen a resurgence of activism and militancy in recent years.
