Picket by striking United Auto Workers (UAW), from General Motors Lansing Delta Plant, in Delta Township Michigan on September 29, 2023.
Fain stated during a broadcast online that there was more to be gained. "These contracts are record contracts but they come after decades of record decline. It's not good enough to be the greatest ever when auto workers are going backwards in the last 20 years. Fain announced last week that the union would be entering a new phase of contract negotiations and strikes. The UAW's "stand-up" strikes, which are targeted at specific plants and generate $25 billion annually in revenue, have been stepped up to a new level with the strike in Ford's Kentucky factory.
