UAW to expand strikes in 38 GM, Stellantis facilities

The United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain called on Friday for the labor unions of 38 parts distribution facilities of General Motors and Stellantis to join the strikes starting today at 12:00 pm ET, arguing that both companies have rejected the proposals to fulfill the demands of improving salaries and working conditions.

"Both companies are still offering a deficient cost of living allowance that is projected to provide zero increases over the next four years ... have rejected all of our job security proposals ... have rejected our profit-sharing proposals and both companies have rejected our proposals to convert temps," Fain stressed in a video message. Ford Motor Company seems "serious about reaching a deal," he noted.

UAW President also remarked that the strikes will remain on those GM and Stellantis plants that have already stopped activities until the companies come up with a "serious offer" and finish the "corporate greed."
