Dingell Statement on Tentative UAW Contract Agreement with Ford
ANN ARBOR, Mich., October 25, 2023
Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06) released the following statement in response to the news of the tentative contract agreement between the UAW and Ford.
“The announcement that a tentative agreement has been reached between the UAW and Ford is an important win for auto workers. The reported provisions of the deal will result in a 25% wage increase over the life of the contract, cost of living adjustments, and increased job security. These conversations have been hard, but they are shaping the future of the American auto industry as we are in these transformational times. This historic agreement demonstrates what can be accomplished when the workers are given a seat at the table and can work together with management to keep these jobs in America, and keep our country at the forefront of manufacturing, innovation, and technology. I will always stand with our auto workers and will fight to ensure the U.S. auto industry remains the global leader. As we get more details, and ultimately the decision is made by the UAW membership, we must remember that the workers are a critical partner to keep this industry competitive.”
