The United Auto Workers (UAW) today announced the ratification of contracts with the Big Three automakers—General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis. The contracts dramatically increase wages, end the tier systems, lay the groundwork to bring many of the automakers’ electric vehicle (EV) and battery facilities under the UAW’s master contracts, and much more.
In response to the successful ratification of the contracts, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“This strike illustrated the power of working people fighting together for a clean, prosperous, and equitable future for all. We congratulate our siblings at UAW for this historic victory. It is a win not just for autoworkers but for all workers in the United States.
“The UAW stood up and fought for building the clean economy the right way here in the United States—with good, union jobs. These contract wins are a giant leap toward making that a reality.”
