"Almost Time To Rage": United Auto Workers Vote To Authorize Strikes At GM, Ford, Stellantis

The UPS and the Teamsters Union deal has likely emboldened unionized workers nationwide to threaten companies with strikes for higher wages and better benefits. The latest is United Auto Workers members voted in favor of union leaders reserving the right to strike if no labor contract is agreed upon with the Detroit Three automakers (Stellantis NV, General Motors Co., and Ford Motor Co) in mid-September.

On Friday, UAW President Shawn Fain told members, "97% of you voted to authorize a strike because you know that we do have the power, that we are united and we're not afraid. And we're gonna win. The Big Three's race to the bottom ends on Sept. 14."

The votes are in, and the results are astounding: 97% of Big Three members voted YES to authorize a strike if the automakers don't give us a fair deal.

Get strike ready:

"Our goal is not to strike. I want to make that very clear. Our goal is to bargain good agreements for our members," Fain said during the Facebook Live event. "But all we've tried to do with this is prepare everybody in the event that we have to take action to get a fair and just contract."
