Podcast: An Update on UAW Negotiations

Oct. 4, 2023
UAW Region 2B Director David Green and Syracuse University Professor Lynne Vincent discussed the ongoing strike against Ford, GM and Stellantis and how that fits into the larger labor movement.

The United Auto Workers has been on strike against General Motors, Ford and Stellantis for several weeks with little progress being publicly announced. Late last month, IndustryWeek hosted a livestream chat with Dave Green, director of UAW Region 2B covering Ohio and Indiana, and Lynne Vincent, a management professor who studies labor relations and other organizational issues at Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management

Speakers discussed how the union needs a big win here, not just to show its current members that it can deliver big economic gains after two decades of concessionary deals, but to show workers at Telsa, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai and Kia that joining a union could deliver better wages and benefits to them as well. 

For those of you who prefer podcasts to videos, please enjoy the discussion.
