UAW says Stellantis boosts wage-hike offer to 19.5% – Detroit News

Stellantis’ latest offer to the striking United Auto Workers includes a 19.5% wage increase and the conversion of salaried workers to hourly, according to the Detroit News. The offer also involves consolidating after-sales parts plants and expanding the use of supplemental workers by the Jeep maker.

UAW President Shawn Fain stated that Stellantis had proposed a 17.5% pay raise. However, Union Vice President Rich Boyer criticized the offer as “concessionary” and attributed it to concerns about the transition to electrification.

The strike, which began on Friday, has resulted in the suspension of production at three plants that manufacture popular models such as the Ford Bronco, Jeep Wrangler, and Chevrolet Colorado.

The union, representing 146,000 U.S. auto workers, has been demanding 40% pay raises until September 2027 and significant improvements in benefits.
