The United Front expresses its solidarity with the UAW and its members who are on strike.

25 September 2023: Dear Shawn Fain, Dear colleagues of the UAW, on September 15th, a significant moment in American labor history unfolded when United Auto Workers (UAW) members initiated targeted strikes. These strikes occurred after their union contracts with the "Big Three" automakers (Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, the parent company of Chrysler) expired without new union agreements being reached. The United Front (International Anti-Imperialist United Front Against Fascism, War, and Environmental Destruction) expresses its solidarity with the UAW and its members who are on strike.

Over the last decade, the Big Three companies have recorded $250 billion in earnings, distributed billions in dividends to their shareholders, and increased executive compensation by over 40 percent. Today, UAW members, who made significant sacrifices to help save the auto industry in 2008, are striking to challenge corporate greed and obtain what they rightfully deserve.
The struggle of the auto workers today reminds us of the historic Sit-Down Strikes of the 1930s that led to the recognition of the UAW and helped ignite a wave of union organizing across the United States of America. Unionized auto workers from around the world have always stood up for all working-class people to ensure lives with dignity. That is why recent public polls show that three out of four Americans support the UAW in this fight. This demonstrates the mutual solidarity between the unions and the people.
As the United Front, we would like to congratulate you on your most promising strike, and we want to reiterate our commitment to supporting workers as they fight for a better future.

Warm greetings and solidarity,
on behalf of the Consultative Committee
Representative of the Union of Cypriots in the CC
Monika Gärtner-Engel, Co-President of the United Front
