Auto Workers Picket in Avon Lake Featured

Written by

The United Auto Workers strike against automakers continues, with several dozen members of the union's local 2000 chapter gathering outside Avon Lake’s Ford assembly plant on Sunday to show solidarity and support. 

UAW Local 2000 President Bill Samples tells Fox 8 that their message is clear, they demand a better paying contract, with the UAW claiming that CEO pay at the big 3 automakers has increased 40% over the last 4 years, with autoworkers only receiving 6% raises since 2019.

Local UAW President Dan Schwartz represents 900 employees that are ready to join the fight saying, “We’re ready to do what we need to do to get what’s ours.”
