The United Auto Workers (UAW) is preparing for a targeted strike against Detroit’s major automakers, including Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis. UAW President Shawn Fain announced that if a new contract deal has not been reached by midnight on Friday, the strike will begin, starting with a select few facilities and factories. Fain stated that all other facilities should be ready to strike at a moment’s notice. The union plans to keep the companies guessing about which factories will be targeted. Fain made the announcement while acknowledging that the companies have raised their wage offers, but deemed them inadequate given the inflation and rising profits and CEO pay. The strike could have a significant impact on the automotive industry and its suppliers, potentially disrupting production and causing further financial strain. The White House is monitoring the contract talks closely and urging all parties to reach a deal. The automakers maintain that they are negotiating in good faith but cannot meet all of the union’s demands without hindering future investment and growth. Fain emphasized the union’s commitment to fighting economic inequality and the “billionaire class.”
