US largest labor union secures right to strike at General Motors, Ford, Chrysler


the largest U.S. worker unions, the United Automobile Workers (UAW), has been authorized by its members to go on strike during the upcoming negotiations on new labor contracts among the workers of three American automobile concerns - General Motors, Ford and Chrysler (part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, FCA).

The union, which includes about 150,000 workers, received approval of 95.98% of the union members working for Ford, 96.4% - of General Motors employees, and 96% - of FCA employees. The package of current labor contractual arrangements for workers expires on September 14th.

Another difficult point in the negotiations could be GM’s plans to close four US enterprises, which could affect 14,000 full-time employees. American analysts believe that the negotiations between UAW and GM may become the most difficult, taking into account the position of Donald Trump, requiring companies to maintain American jobs.
