UAW Reaches Tentative Deal with GM, Ending Strike Against Big Three U.S. Automakers

HeadlineOct 31, 2023

The United Auto Workers on Monday reached a tentative agreement with General Motors, more than six weeks after thousands of autoworkers walked off the job for a historic strike against the Big Three U.S. automakers. The deal followed similar tentative contracts the UAW reached with Stellantis and Ford in recent days. This is UAW President Shawn Fain.

Shawn Fain: “We have won record agreements at Ford, Stellantis and now GM. We have united our membership like never before. We have shown the companies, the American public and the whole world that the working class is not done fighting. In fact, we’re just getting started.”

The agreement with GM includes a 25% wage increase over four-and-a-half years, among other benefits. We’ll have more on the strike later in the broadcast.
