LANSING, Sept. 14, 2023 ~ As tonight’s UAW negotiation deadline nears, observers fear that the reality of a strike is inevitable, potentially shuttering plants and putting more than 150,000 workers on the picket line. 

UAW President Sean Fain confirmed in a Facebook Live that the union is set to strike if Ford Motor Co., Stellantis, and General Motors fail to appease a desired wage increase for auto workers. The strike is expected to consist of strategic walkouts, targeting key plants at all Big Three automakers. As a result, the looming strike could not only affect the cost structure and pricing of cars, but also cost the U.S. economy over $5 billion.

U.S. Congresswoman of Michigan’s 6th District Debbie Dingell spoke more about the strike and its potential impacts on “JR Mornings With Guy Gordon, Lloyd Jackson, and Jamie Edmonds.”
