The auto strike in the United States that began on September 15 is still widening, with another 7,000 members of the United Auto Workers (UAW) crossing their arms against the 'Big Three': Ford, General Motors and Stellantis.
There are currently 25,000 workers on strike in 21 American states, 17% of UAW members. Union leader Shawn Fain said the latest workers to join the protest were at two plants in Chicago, Illinois and Michigan. Fain, however, announced that he would not ask for discussion in Stellanis factories after "significant progress" in negotiations.
The union called for a 40% wage increase for the next four-year contract, while the three companies offered around 20%.
