DETROIT – The United Auto Workers is expanding strikes to 38 parts and distribution locations across 20 states for General Motors
, UAW President Shawn Fain said Friday morning.
The union will not initiate additional strikes at Ford Motor
, as the company has proven it’s “serious about reaching a deal,” Fain said during a Facebook Live.
“We still have serious issues to work through, but we do want to recognize that Ford is showing that they’re serious about reaching a deal,” said the outspoken union leader. “At GM and Stellantis, it’s a different story.”
Fain said the union and Ford have made progress on issues including eliminating some wage tiers, reinstating cost-of-living adjustments and an improved profit-sharing formula.
