UAW strike


By Jacob Pamus


The United Auto Workers (UAW) continues to expand, with the strike now in its 26th day. On Sept. 29, the UAW added new locations: Fords’ Chicago Assembly plant and General Motors Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant in Michigan. The number of workers striking is now over 25,000.


Today, Canadian autoworkers walked out on strike against Ford in solidarity with the UAW in the U.S.
