Biden Backs Striking Auto Workers Fight for Stronger Contract
President Biden voiced support for striking United Auto Workers and called on the country’s three largest car companies to “go further” in negotiations to share their record corporate profits with workers.
No one wants a strike. Say it again. No one wants a strike. But I respect workers’ right to use their options under the collective bargaining system. And I understand the workers’ frustration. Over generations, autoworkers sacrificed so much to keep the industry alive and strong, especially in the economic crisis and the pandemic. Workers deserve a fair share of the benefits they help create for an enterprise. The companies have made some significant offers, but I believe they should go further to ensure record corporate profits mean record contracts for the U.A.W. Let me say that again. Record corporate profits, which they have, should be shared by record contracts for the U.A.W.
