UAW Reaches Deals with GM and Stellantis, Effectively Ending ‘Big 3’ Strike

Less than a week after the United Auto Workers reached a deal with Ford and Stellantis, the union’s strike against the “Big Three” Detroit-based car manufacturers is expected to come to an end with a final deal.

On Oct. 30, General Motors became the last of the three automakers to reach a tentative agreement with UAW, according to reports by Bloomberg, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

The parties have not released details of the GM deal, but Reuters reports that the top pay for veteran workers raised by 33%. 

UAW first reached a tentative deal with Ford on Oct. 26, followed by a deal with Stellantis on Oct. 28. The four-and-a-half-year tentative agreements must still be ratified by members at each of the automakers. 

In Other UAW News: Mack Trucks Labor Talks Stalled 

In separate negotiations from the “Big Three” strike, nearly 4,000 UAW union employees at Mack Trucks facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida have been on strike since Oct. 9 after rejecting a proposed five-year contract which included a 19% pay raise.

On Oct. 26, Mack Trucks said the contract’s economic demands “continue to be unrealistic,” according to a Reuters report, and that no news talks are scheduled.
