STATEMENT FROM UAW VICE PRESIDENT CINDY ESTRADA,  DIRECTOR OF THE UAW STELLANTIS DEPARTMENT ON STELLANTIS $229 MILLION INVESTMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Detroit – “Today’s announced investment in the UAW Stellantis Kokomo plants is a result of the hard work and attention to quality that the UAW- Stellantis workforce has demonstrated over the past years. During the 2019 Negotiations the UAW Negotiators made it a priority that as we transition into the next generation of vehicles and powertrains the UAW members must continue to build these great products. The commitment to building these multi-tool transmissions will enable Kokomo UAW members to continue the quality transmissions used in today’s gas and hybrid technology while preparing for electric vehicles and new technologies far into the future. Investments, like the one made today, must include good union jobs for our current and future members and their families.”
