US car worker strikes: 10,000 people walk out at General Motors, Ford and Stellantis – BBC News

More than 10,000 staff at three of the biggest US carmakers have started strike action, their union says.

Work has been stopped at three plants owned by General Motors (GM), Ford and Stellantis.

It came after labour contracts expired on Thursday night. The United Autoworkers Union (UAW) said the firms had not put forward acceptable offers.

The union had sought a 40% pay increase for its roughly 140,000 members over four years, noting a comparable rise in pay for company leaders.

Last month, 97% of the union’s members voted to authorise a strike.
