UAW Strike Expands Again

The union says it shut down a Ram truck plant

The United Auto Workers (UAW) union says it expanded its strike again Monday, as 6,800 people stopped working at a plant that makes Ram 1500 trucks.

That means this expansion of the strike targets one of Stellantis' most important and profitable vehicles. The union took a similar step with its last walkout, when it shut down a Ford plant in Kentucky where several F-Series Super Duty pickups are made.

The move comes days after UAW President Shawn Fain repeatedly criticized Stellantis, the company that makes Ram, Dodge and Chrysler vehicles. He said Stellantis "is trying to lowball and undercut us" with contract proposals that were significantly weaker than those offered by Ford and General Motors.
