UAW announces push to organize nonunion plants after strike wins [Lauren Irwin | 11/29/23 | The Hill]

The newest push for workplace improvement will organize more than 150,000 autoworkers across 13 different automakers: BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Lucid, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, Rivian, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo, the union said in a release.

The union said the strongest push will be at the Toyota assembly complex in Georgetown, Ky., where almost 8,000 employees make Camry, RAV4 and Lexus ES vehicles.

“We still build a quality vehicle. People take pride in that, but morale is at an all-time low,” Allen said in the UAW release. “They can give you a raise today and jack up your health benefits tomorrow. A union contract is the only way to win that’s fair.”

Recently, several non-union shops needed to increase pay and benefits. Unions even make non-union shops better. Better unions, better conditions.

When every single job in the USA is represented by a union, maybe we can finally start making real progress towards a post-scarcity world.
