GM and Stellantis just laid off more than 2,000 additional workers because of the UAW’s strike
  • GM said that it had idealed an assembly plant in Kansas due to a shortage of parts because of the strike. Approximately 2,000 of the workers were laid off on Wednesday.
  • Stellantis had also laid off around 370 workers from three parts of the factory that is in charge of supplying its Jeep located in Toledo, where the workers of United Auto went on a strike the previous week.
  • GM said due to the strike, the workers who were laid off on Wednesday will not be considered eligible for the supplemental employment benefits that it normally pays.

Stelanis and General Motors said they have laid off a number of additional workers due to the consequences that are associated with the United Auto Workers strike.

GM mentioned in a statement on Wednesday that they have

“halted production at its assembly plant in Fairfax, Kansas, because of a shortage of critical stampings that would have been supplied by its factory in Wentzville, Missouri, where workers went on strike last week.”

approximately 2,000 working individuals were affected by this decision.

Earlier on Wednesday, Stellanis said that it has been laying off around 370 of its employees from three portions of the factories located in Indiana and Ohio immediately because of “storage constraints,” – which are also associated with the said strike. The plants are known to make Jeep vehicle parts, which are built at the Toledo Assembly Complex of the automaker, where, too, the workers have gone on strike.

“We have said repeatedly that nobody wins in a strike,” General Motors added in a statement. “What happened to our Fairfax team members is a clear and immediate demonstration of that fact. We will continue to bargain in good faith with the union to reach an agreement as quickly as possible.”

Shawn Fain, the UAW President, said that they may announce more strikes by Friday, which will continue to happen unless there is “serious progress” in negotiations.
