Summer Lee Statement on UAW Negotiations

Washington, DC – US Congresswoman Summer Lee released the following statement on United Auto Workers’ (UAW’s) ongoing negotiations with the Big Three Automakers following a summer of labor strikes, victories for worker power, and the highest levels of public support for organized labor in decades. 

“ANY company that can afford 40% raises for CEOs already raking in millions can afford raises for their workers who make .00275 (less than half a percent) of their company’s top executives. These workers don’t threaten our economy, but the reality is that greedy CEOs do. 

“The workers who power the big three American auto companies are fighting for a future where ALL workers benefit from the profits of their hard work and ingenuity currently hoarded by corporate CEOs. 

 “These CEOs are never going to move unless we the people join together in solidarity to move them. If the Big 3 car companies fail to meet UAW’s at the bargaining table by September 14th, and over 140,000 auto workers go on strike, I will be standing with them and look forward to every pro-labor member of Congress, PA elected, and President Biden joining with me.”
