Contracts expire at midnight at 11:59 p.m. September 14, and the UAW has targeted General Motors to be the focus of bargaining.
Meanwhile, GM executives announced that the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer and 2020 Buick Encore GX will both be manufactured in South Korea and exported to the USA market for sale, undercutting the corporation's claim that they manufacture products where they sell them.
A UAW statement says 'Mary Barra said from the outset of these talks that we will stand up as we tackle a changing industry. "We are ready to stand strong for our future", said Jones in a statement posted on the official UAW website.
The UAW announced Tuesday that 96% of the union employees at each of the Detoit auto makers voted last week to support a strike if necessary. It gives authority to the UAW International President and International Executive Board to call for a strike.
'Clearly the UAW stood up for them in a very dark time, now that they are profitable, it is time for them to stand up for all of us'. Meanwhile, a corruption investigation continues involving the union's leadership.Читайте также: Starc-studded Australia bat at Old Trafford after winning toss
The last time UAW workers went on strike against GM was in 2007.
The UAW is targeting GM for this year's contract talks with automakers. That 73,000-worker strike idled 80 plants for two days, costing the automaker about 0 million a day, and was the union's first against GM since 1970.
GM, the nation's largest automaker, likely was picked because talks there will be the most hard of the Detroit Three, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of labor, industry and economics at the Center for Automotive Research, an industry think tank. The union raised strike pay for workers and has said it will use all tools in its tool box during contract talks. GM also leads all automakers in production of vehicles in Mexico, another thorny issue for the union.
Fiat Chrysler pays about US$55 an hour in wages and benefits to UAW workers, while it's US$61 at Ford and US$63 at GM. Last week, federal agents searched Mr. Jones's suburban Detroit home, and several union leaders and executives have been found guilty of taking money from a training centre run jointly by the UAW and Fiat Chrysler. GM has left the union hanging further by referring to the shuttered plants as "unallocated", meaning they have no products now assigned to them, but they are stopping short of calling them closed.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
