Detroit Three say UAW strikes forcing layoffs
Detroit automakers have announced more layoffs as the United Auto Workers' strike reaches its sixth day. The union has so far only struck three plants -- but there are ripple effects
Stellantis has announced temporary layoffs of some non-striking workers at its Toledo Machining Plant in Ohio, due to the union's strike at its Toledo Assembly Complex. The company also anticipates more layoffs, at two plants in Indiana. General Motors has idled 2,000 hourly workers at its Fairfax Kansas plant which gets parts from a struck plant in Wentzville Missouri. And last week, Ford laid off 600 workers at its Michigan Assembly plant, after the union told final assembly and paint shop workers to go on strike there. The union says it will announce more plant strikes at noon Friday if there's no tentative agreement with the companies by then.
