The UAW strike has escalated, clouding the US economy.

The United Auto Workers (UAW) union is extending a strike at several of America’s largest automakers, bringing the wage and benefits dispute into its third week.

According to union boss Shawn Fain, 7,000 more workers at Ford and General Motors plants are planning to strike.

According to him, the current measure did not target Stellantis and reflected new momentum in those talks.

In a conflict that has placed a cloud over the US economy, around 18,000 workers are already on strike.

Both US President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, who is vying for re-election, visited the Detroit area this week to address the issue, which comes at a time when labor tensions are high across the country.

The union began bargaining for a nearly 40% salary increase over four years, as well as an end to policies that pay newer hires less and provide fewer benefits.

The corporations have argued that the union’s demands will have a negative impact on their ability to invest in the long run. They have responded with a 20% wage raise and other concessions.
