UAW to strike at three plants at midnight, barring deal


The United Auto Workers union plans to walk off the job at three plants in Michigan, Ohio and Missouri beginning at midnight Thursday, barring an eleventh-hour deal with Ford, GM and Stellantis.

The strike will initially target GM’s Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri, Stellantis’ Toledo Assembly in Ohio and Ford’s Michigan Assembly in Wayne, Mich., UAW President Shawn Fain announced on a live stream Thursday night.

Union members at other facilities will continue working without a contract for the time being, Fain said. The strike would only target final assembly and paint at the Ford facility, he added.
