UAW Strike Updates
Ford added another 8,700 workers to the picket lines with one of Ford’s largest and most profitable assembly lines in Kentucky halting production. 16,600+ Ford employees are currently on strike with 3,167 employees being laid off.
The UAW has also just shut down the most profitable auto assembly operation in the world. The union ordered 5,000 workers off the job at General Motors’ full-size SUV plant in Arlington, Texas, a day after 6,800 workers at Stellantis RAM pickup plant in Sterling Heights, Mich., onto picket lines.
Approximately 45,000 of the UAW’s 146,000 members at the three automakers have now joined the strike since it started on Sept. 15th.
