UAW Statement on Increasing Strike Pay to $500 Per Week
Today, the UAW International Executive Board unanimously approved increasing strike pay from $400 to $500 per week. This increase reflects the effects of continuing inflation as well as the need for our union to prepare for an important bargaining year affecting multiple sectors and employers.
“This increase will immediately help members who are on strike,” says UAW President Ray Curry. “Increasing the strike pay gives notice to employers that we have high expectations as we head into bargaining, and that the UAW is united in fighting for economic justice for all members.”
