UAW Workers at Ford’s Kentucky Plant Join “Stand-Up” Strike Against Big 3

HeadlineOct 12, 2023

In labor news, United Auto Workers in Kentucky shut down Ford’s largest plant, as the union escalates its “stand-up” strike against the Big Three automakers, which also includes GM and Stellantis. The plant employs nearly 9,000 union workers who make some of the company’s most profitable vehicles, including pickup trucks and SUVs. Meanwhile, in Canada, autoworkers for General Motors ended their strike less than a day after it started, after reaching a tentative deal over pay and pensions.
