UAW to expand strike; leader invites Biden to picket with workers
The United Auto Workers (UAW) will expand its strike Friday afternoon, with employees walking off the job at General Motors and Stellantis parts distribution facilities, union President Shawn Fain announced.
Fain, in livestreamed remarks, said workers have made progress in negotiations with Ford since a targeted strike began at the Big Three auto companies last week.
“At GM and Stellantis, it’s a different story,” Fain said.
The union is expanding the strike Friday to include Stellantis and GM facilities at 38 locations across 28 states, he said.
