Factbox-Detroit Three plants where UAW is on strike

(Reuters) – The United Auto Workers union began unprecedented, simultaneous walkouts at General Motors, Ford and Chrysler parent Stellantis’ U.S. operations early on Friday after failing to reach pay deals with the automakers.

The walkouts cap weeks of clashes between the union and Detroit Three executives over union demands for a bigger share of profits generated by combustion trucks, and stronger job security as automakers shift to electric vehicles.

These are the first plants where strikes are taking place:


Wentzville, Missouri assembly plant

About 3,600 UAW members

Products produced: Chevrolet Colorado and Express; GMC Canyon and Savanna


Wayne, Michigan assembly plant, excluding stamping plant

About 3,300 UAW members

Products produced: Ford Ranger and Bronco


Toledo, Ohio assembly plant

About 5,800 UAW members

Products produced: Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator
