Worker Militancy: Outcomes of the UAW Strike

Monday, November 27, 2023 at 1:00pm

Virtual Event

eCornell Keynote

The United Auto Workers won substantial pay and benefits hikes from the Big Three in contracts likely to be ratified in the coming weeks. Already, Toyota is raising its wages, showing that union wins can impact non-unionized workers.

Are the dramatic UAW rolling targeted strike strategy and subsequent innovative deals indicative of broader worker empowerment? Or are they simply the result of a well-measured plan impacting one industry?

Join automotive industry and union experts from the Cornell ILR School for a discussion about the outcomes of the strike on the auto industry and the American workforce.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Will pay bumps for Toyota spread to other non-unionized autoworkers and to other industries?
  • Will the UAW now turn its focus to aggressive organizing efforts focused on Tesla and the auto supplier sector? Will these efforts succeed without major labor law changes?
  • Did the Big Three get caught flatfooted? If so, why?
  • Will surprise rolling plant strikes spread to other industries?
  • How will the new Big Three contracts impact labor negotiations across industries?
