Today's Key News Review | Dolphin Research
0914 Dolphin Research Focus:
1. The labor contracts between the United Auto Workers (UAW), with approximately 150,000 members, and the "Big Three" automakers (General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis) are set to expire tonight at midnight. However, due to disagreements on compensation proposals, job security, and pension benefits, the UAW is prepared to launch simultaneous strikes against all three automakers for the first time in history. The automotive industry accounts for 3% of the US GDP, and the "Big Three" hold over 90% of the US automotive market share. Economists estimate that a large-scale strike could result in a daily loss of around $500 million for the US economy. However, based on past experiences, labor strikes are often avoided at the last minute.
