Statement from UAW President Ray Curry on the Adoption of Nationwide Emission Regulations that Protect and Create Jobs

Detroit — “President Joe Biden and EPA Administrator Michael Regan have created a win-win for UAW members, the U.S. manufacturing workforce and our environment by putting into place nationwide 2023 to 2026 Model Year (MY) light-duty emission regulations that are good for our air quality, preserve and grow both American jobs and our economy.

History has demonstrated that strong standards based on input from stakeholders that include American workers at the table can be an opportunity for both job retention, job creation and environmental protections.

Well thought out regulations, such as the Biden Administration’s emission rules today, will promote long-term U.S. investments while they protect and expand good paying union jobs in vehicle production and advanced technologies that will allow manufacturers the flexibility necessary to meet these standards.”
