Fast technology September 30 news, late this month, the United Auto Workers union demanded higher wages, but also asked for lower working hours, and set off the largest strike in history, recently, the matter has the latest progress.
The United Auto Union says its new goal isWants to negotiate a wage increase of at least 30% with auto makers. The move is seen as an important step toward a loosening of the union's position and an eventual agreement.
It is reported that since the current labor dispute turned into a strike,The UAW had called for 40 percent wage increases at GM, Ford and Stellantis, before lowering its target to 36 percent.
The current Ford offer is to raise wages by 20% and increase COLA payments on this basis, although it is still a short distance from the demands of the union, but this means that the gap between the two sides in terms of pay increases is narrowing, and is expected to reach a consensus.
But to be clear, it's not just a wage increase, there are a number of difficult issues between workers and automakers that need to be resolved, including ensuring jobs for UAW members; Compensation for future battery factory workers and retiree benefits; Demands to restore traditional pensions, for example, could also cause the talks to collapse if they fail to reach agreement.
Musk commented on the situation, saying, "They're asking for a 40 percent raise and a 32-hour work week.This would surely put GM, Ford, and Chrysler on the fast track to bankruptcy, which would then make cars unaffordable, cause sales to plumb, and eventually lead to bankruptcy.”
