UAW on strike at the Big Three

Auto workers strike for a fair share of record profits


DETROIT, Michigan (Sept. 15, 2023) — The Stand Up Strike is on.

UAW auto workers walked out on strike in the early hours of September 15 as their contract expired. Workers are standing up strike lines at three locations, deploying a creative strike strategy to keep the companies guessing and build leverage at the bargaining table.
