UAW Workers Ratify Contracts with "Big 3"

Deals bring wage increases of at least 25 percent over 4.5 years

The United Auto Workers (UAW) said its members have ratified new contracts with all of the Big Three automakers, ushering in raises of at least 25 percent over 4.5 years and additional perks that mark one of the labor movement’s biggest wins in decades.

The union’s combative new president, Shawn Fain, said the UAW will now turn its attention to attempting to unionize the U.S. auto sector beyond General Motors, Ford and Stellantis, as well as other industries.

"The Stand Up Strike was just the beginning," Fain said in a statement Monday. "The UAW is back to setting the standard. Now, we take our strike muscle and our fighting spirit to the rest of the industries we represent, and to millions of nonunion workers ready to Stand Up and fight for a better way of life."
