Zapping Auto Moto Alpine A110 MP-RC test: a real racing car at a good price?
The strike in the automobile industry in the United States is clearly set to last a little longer. And above all to concern a few more workers and factories. As evidenced by Shawn Fain. This Friday, the president of the American automobile union United Auto Workers (UAW) called on no less than 7,000 new employees to stop work.
Enough to swell the ranks of some 18,600 employees already on strike for two weeks. The fault lies in the fact that no conclusive agreement has been reached with Ford, General Motors (GM) or Stellantis regarding working conditions. Employees are demanding, in particular, better salaries.
And companies are clearly not making interesting enough proposals. Reason why Shawn Fain called on more people to join the movement. “Despite our desire to find a compromise, Ford and General Motors have refused to make significant progress (in the discussions)”he explained in a video.
Is Stellantis making a move?
Note that the union boss is not asking new Stellantis employees to join the movement. A position which can be explained by “significant progress” on several points. This concerns in particular the mechanism for adjusting salaries to the cost of living or even that of striking in the event of an announcement of site closure and relocation.
Enough to give something positive. “We are excited to see this momentum at Stellantis and hope to see it continue”, underlines the president of the union. An interesting point, as the group’s response in the past has been described as shameful.
It remains to be seen how the situation on this subject, which is paralyzing the United States, will evolve. Remember that Joe Biden and Donald Trump, the 2024 presidential candidates, even went to meet the strikers to support them.

To sum up
The strike in automobile factories in the United States strengthens with the stoppage of work by 7,000 new employees. A situation which concerns Ford and General Motors but not Stellantis, with which progress has been made recently.
