About 146,000 U.S. auto workers are prepared to go on strike if General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis do not meet their demands for significant pay raises and improved benefits. The United Auto Workers (UAW) has asked for 46% raises in general pay over four years, along with the restoration of previously agreed-upon concessions. The UAW also wants to represent workers at 10 electric vehicle battery factories. The automakers have offered pay raises of 10% or more, but have rejected certain union demands. A strike could lead to disruptions in auto production and potentially raise car prices.
