HeadlineSep 25, 2023

President Biden will join the United Auto Workers’ picket line in Michigan on Tuesday. It’s believed to be the first time a sitting president has joined strikers on the picket line. This comes as the union announced Friday an expansion of its strike to 38 locations in 20 states. The new work stoppages target GM and Stellantis, after the UAW acknowledged “real progress” in talks with Ford.
