UAW strike update: More auto plants to join ‘stand-up’ strike

The United Auto Workers are striking against all of the Big Three automakers at once for the first time in the union’s history. The UAW is employing a novel “stand-up strike” strategy: rather than having over 140,000 auto workers hit the picket line at once, UAW members at three strategically targeted plants were called to strike first last Thursday, and union president Shawn Fain has announced that more plants will be called to strike by the end of this week. What are the key demands auto workers are striking over? What’s happening on the picket lines? How are active and retired members feeling about the union’s new, more militant strategy? And what role do we all have to play in ensuring they win the contract they deserve? On this worker solidarity livestream, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez will speak with Martha Grevatt, a retired auto worker and UAW Local 869 member, and Auston Gore, an assembly line worker and UAW Local 12 member who is currently on strike at the Stellantis Toledo Assembly Complex.

  1. The trick is you gotta have compassion. You gotta grow up, you cannot be afraid. Independent on how much evil is around you. You've got to be patient Gandhi. Did it most of his life because it was more important to get the word out and to be compassionate than it was for him to do harm because somebody had to do it, and he might as well be it. So he did, he just did not have the strength or the money? In any other way to do the job that he had to do in his own mind to show the world that he was an adult. And they were children evil never grew up. Strangely enough, I do not agree with his religion. But compassion was the answer. The other answer is you cannot fear. If you're fear, then you will get buckets of blood throne on you. Because that is what he will know.
    And when you cannot. Block the damage and when the damages. Going to be too great then it is time to talk in the language of evil and put it out of its misury. I pray you never have to do that.

    I just heard your.
    Play and explanation for why we have so many cops. And why they do so much violence, the narcan drug. Is created from Adrian a Chrome? When It ages it turns back into a drain and Chrome, and it is toxic to the body. Moreover, it is the most addictive drug in the world. You cannot get off of the stuff.
    Because your body will simply start creating more until you eat your own brain. There was a reason that the drug companies didn't want to put it out there. It's not stopping the morphine over. Doug Singh or the morphine use. It is creating something worse because people will always learn how to abuse something. And then they will make it easy for others to do so.
    That is why. For the longest time, nor can and other such drugs that will stop allergic reactions were kept from the public. They didn't want them to be abused. So they kept an expensive, but the problem with keeping them expensive was that? Nobody wanted to waste them. And once you gave somebody hydrogen line that has been turned into narcan and had aged doubt. And was now adrenochrome again. You gave them a drug that they could never get off of you destroyed them from then on, they were animals. Craving adrenacum and did not know how to get it.
    And they were probably going to pay for that with the rest of their lives, abuse, and evil. And it was all your fault.
    Because you did not throw away the drug that you knew was most likely poison. Because it was too hot for too long or had simply aged out. But it had never killed anybody before well.
    No, it really didn't it went? It made them crazy and then that got buried, so nobody knew it.
    It's a very safe drug and tell it isn't. And you don't have to be a criminal. To destroy somebody's life, you can actually be trying to save them. So many nurses at schools have done exactly that. Because they didn't want to throw away the medicine that could save a child's wife if they got stung by a bee or accidentally Or purposely invested narcotics. Adrenochrome and the life-saving. Allergy medicines should have never left the lab except to go directly to the patient. Unfortunately, there's very little time for that to happen. So there was nothing the labs could do to make it easy for people to get the drug without knowing that they were murdering. Thousands more than they would be saving eventually.
    What do you think those pills that we are getting at? The border were made out of.
    That's a narcotic Made from the patuatore glands of animals that they have killed, it is pure death when it gets to Mexico They mix it down to make it in narcotic. I think it is made from the potuatry glands of possums or goats. Sort something that has an overdose in their fire flight response. Naturally, unfortunately, people have learned how to harvest their dream of Chrome and what you have to do just to get enough adrenaline Chrome to harvest is more than most people can stomach even in a movie. The life savings drugs that you wanted them to give out so terrible. Many years ago, the problem is that they had an equal chance of being turned into the worst drugs in the world and now they have become. And now we torture children while somebody tortures children to create adrenacort. It is true, alchemy. These drugs that you were blaming the science world for stealing the money. Buying cops with no, they were terrified of what would happen. They knew worse than what they had ever seen. What's going to happen sooner or late? They saved us for the longest time. But now nobody has the compassion or the power to stop it. Evil has become evil because it did not first-hand see what it could do, and now it sees it. Second hand and is on Maya's at the power that it has. Because it was never compassionate and trying to create good. It just wanted power and that requires evil. And fear, and now they have plenty of it and you buy it from them. Oh, they are, so pleased. And they even laughed when you complained at what day did. Because you didn't understand what you were talking about either. The drugs should have never left the lab end. There are a few more that are getting ready to come out the zombie drug being one of them. It will make shipping horse flesh and working. The flesh without a knife, easier to masters. And slavery tolerable as long as the masters are generous. Even though the masters will have lives, that will last maybe 60 or 70 years. And the slaves will have lives that last 30 at best.
    Because of the drugs because of the mercy, no, because of the drugs, there is no mercy in evil. Only a lack of fear because you are being a good slave.

    It is important you know where what you are talking about? Came from and what it's downfalls are all of them.
    The man who created Jed engines forgot more about jet engines than the man who replaced him. And he learned everything that the managed forgotten, eventually, he killed a lot of people in the process. And these were both 2 scientists that were crying to just do good for the world. That's what happens when you try to do good, but you work beyond the limits of man. It's just about everything that was beyond the limits of man. It is so hard to do good without releasing evil. At least try to know as much as you can. Before you speak out, it can be a problem. Sometimes you can shame the wrong thing for the wrong people.

  2. 99% of companies and corporations treat their employees like this or worse just imagine if every worker went on strike at multiple companies corporations etc we would turn this country and the job industry as whole on its head these corporations and companies aren't SH#T without the people that keep them going both workers and consumers

  3. Theres not enough talk about how much profit the company makes or the pay & benifits the management gets, so the people can see the greed of the company😮

  4. And they took the Dental & the Vision away😮 when u retire & as you get older those are the main things u need, Teeth to chew the food & as your sight diminish, eye care.

  5. 😢😢😢😢 Does anyone really believe the Bosses care about the workers who work the lines & there families PLEASE!!!! Yea but the Bosses are getting PAYED, Big Time😮

  6. Driving an old Ford because you couldn't afford a GMC pickup truck $80,000😢 so ur old truck breaks down while your building NEW trucks & cars for the rich & famous. Well thats sounds glorious, yes you need to strike, Amen 😂

  7. The UAW is affiliated with the AFL-CIO, which has been captured by Big Business. Union management is in bed with the corporations at the expense of rank-and-file union members and they are also in bed with the Democratic Party establishment. The AFL-CIO needs to be broken up.

  8. Thank God I've never had to deal with unions as an executive.

    I'd offshore the work and shut the plant down as soon as these communists began their strike.

    Starve to death, or go find bread in the unemployment line…

  9. Lets say the union gets what they want..What will the cost of auto mobiles become to the consumer? I see lay offs coming either way.

  10. I hope the workers get everything the union is negotiating for. The only thing i dont agree with is that wealth is build by the workers.

  11. The UAW concessions were the fault of previous UAW leaders starting with UAW president Owen "Leave It To Beaver" 🦫
    Bieber. UAW president Steve "Jock Itch" Yokich, and the king of union concessions – UAW president Ron " Middle Finger" Gettlefinger. Also let's take a closer look at some UAW union Local elected officials who think that giving us union spring, and fall jackets along with UAW winter coats is gonna make us feel lucky to get what the Local leaders settled for. As for me, the FBI didn't go far enough to investigate the UAW leaders still walking around bad mouthing our ability to vote for a new UAW international president. And being able to vote for a "cleaner" more honest union leader named Shawn Fain. You should see the hate mail that I received from my UAW Local leaders AND from the "leaders" from Region 1A, who wanted me NOT to vote for Shawn Fain because he was bad for the UAW. A UAW Local president immediately "retired" as soon as Shawn Fain was elected. Left his office as president because he didn't want to work with Shawn Fain. That's the sign of a true union brother. His choice of UAW president didn't get elected, so he walked out on the remainder of his office term in protest of Shawn winning the election. That's a sign of true unionism brotherhood at its finest. This union Local Clown 🤡 throws a poopy filled and pee soaked diaper hissy fit because his union candidate lost the first "honest" rank & file election along with the UAW retirees being able to vote for the first time in UAW history. The FBI needs to reopen the case of UAW corruption. There's still people that need to be jailed walking around our union halls.

  12. Look folks, if Executive CEO Bill Ford Jr. can get the Ford Board of Directors to shell out millions of dollars 💸 buy a crappy and dilapidated train station 🚉 in Detroit, PLUS paid out more millions of dollars because of discovery of water flooded basements under the train station 🚉. PLUS Ford is spending more millions of dollars 💸 to build an all new battery plant in Marshall Michigan.
    AND Executive CEO Bill Ford gives himself more millions of dollars 💸 in pay increases plus stock options and bonuses. Betcha Bill Ford's secretary got increases in her pay and stock options too.
    If Ford CEO Jim Farley still had his grandpa alive and working at the Rouge Plant, or as a UAW retiree, Jim Farley would have rubber stamped everything the UAW wanted. Jim Farley wouldn't want his grandpa living in a van down by the river like his cousin Chris Farley always said on Saturday Night Live. And how CEO Jim Farley wants all of us to live today.

  13. Whenever I had a job that was brutal or underpaid, a job I was sick of, I would call in sick on Fridays or Mondays to get my applications out to better employers.

  14. I'm a retired union carpenter in Oregon. My last jobs were in 2013. My journeyman pay was about $32/hr, plus one month full family health insurance w/ 10 to 20 % copay for each 120 hours of work. Also a pension that earned me $1,112/m for life for only 10 years of vested service. A full time carpenter with 30 years gets about $4,000/m pension plus social security. Currently journeyman carpenter base pay is about $44/hr. The full pay package is about $64/hr.

    I was surprised at the low pay for skilled UAW employees and the slow gains in pay. They deserve a decent pay, a gainful employment, not a survival employment.
    Workers that are underpaid should constantly seek better employment with a wage that provides prosperity and the ability to achieve financial security. I'm with you brothers and sisters of the U A W.

  15. I’m a UAW representative. We gave up our raises in 2006 because GM was in trouble. Management gave up nothing! The CEO at the time got a $20 million package to retire. We lost our cost of living and 3% annual raises. We went 10 years without a raise. Then we only got a total of 3% over 4 years. We have lost 30% of our wages over 17 years. During that same 17 years CEO and high level management salaries have gone up over 1000%. Not only that, they have brought temporary employees in at $16 an hour. When they become permanent, which can take up to 3 years or more, it takes them 8 years to get to top tier wages, which are still lower than those hired before 2007. New hires get reduced benefits and no pension. Where I work, we have been in a mandatory 6 day work week for 8 years straight. GM closed a plant that made similar vehicles to us laying off thousands of people. They brought that product to our plant and force us to do mandatory over time. We are working twice as hard, working more hours and losing pay.

  16. This is a scam scam scam to rasie the cost of cars and repairs so the car companies make more money only not us the consumer or worker. Your raise will be less spending power than now as will drive the cost of living up further over your raise spending power. As they will raise costs. Lower the cost of living by voting Red not BLUE they will rob us the technician of labor time bad this strike they will lower our flat rate time we strike you get fired. So fire them all and sublet the jobs over seas. Or shut up vote for lower cost of living. We cant get parts, now weeks months and you want to work less hurting my paycheck as a technician un the dealership. I hope you lose and get replaced or jobs sent overseas for what what you did to our paychecks in the dealerships.

  17. Close the borders of our country. (Remember dems supported that notion not that long ago? ) Supply and demand stands true for labor as well as anything else. Our labor market is getting flooded in numbers that we've never seen. That kills middle/working class wages.
