Shop Floor Discussion 8 PREVIEW – UAW vs the Big 3

If you’re not a patron you can get the full episode by visiting and support us with $5 a month.

2023 has already been a monumental year for labor, with over 300,000 workers striking in just the first 7 months. Now, in just six weeks, we could see tens of thousands of UAW autoworkers on strike at any one or all of the Big 3 US automaking companies, Ford, GM, and Stellantis.  This is another critical contract fight for the entire labor movement as the upsurge in union support continues to grow. So we decided that doing this story justice would take a whole episode. We sat down to talk about the history of the UAW, the concessions given up during the 2008 bailout, and what workers are fighting for in this new master agreement.
