More strikes at more GM, Ford plants possible Friday

More strikes at more GM, Ford plants possible Friday

United Auto Workers strikes at more plants owned by General Motors, Stellantis and Ford could reportedly come Friday, depending on the status of negotiations.

More automaker sites, which will see strikes, will be based on whether talks between the union and the automakers do not take a significant step forward, Reuters cites an unnamed source. The new strikes would begin two hours after the locations where they would take place get unveiled.

The announcement of the new sites that are planned to be affected will be made public on Friday, the UAW said.

FOX Business reached out to the UAW and the three automakers for comment, but did not receive a response from the union or Ford by the time of its release. Stellantis did not respond to a request for comment.

On Wednesday, the union announced its president, Shawn Fain, would give a'stand-up announcement' at 10 a.m. Friday. The gain in Ford's domestic car sales has risen by 1.5%.
