On the 25th local time, the United Auto Workers union’s strike against Detroit’s three major automakers entered its 11th day, and the strike wave further expanded.
On the same day, thousands more auto workers joined the strike, and the scale of the strike continued to expand. United Auto Workers President Sean Fein said that negotiations between the union and Ford, one of the three major automakers, have made some progress and may reach an agreement;
But negotiations with GM and Stellantis stalled, and the union decided to take more measures to expand the scope of the strike.
Affected by the strike, the transportation of auto parts from General Motors and Stellantis has been hampered. Distributors said that customers have to wait several days to get the parts they need, and they do not know how long this situation will last.
The American media “Barron’s” analyzed that multiple factors such as auto workers’ strike, risk of government shutdown, inflation and oil prices will cast a shadow on the economic development of the United States in the fourth quarter.
