Autoworkers go on strike at plants at each of the Big Three
The Big Three automakers are Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). When autoworkers at one of these automakers go on strike, it is usually a sign of a labor dispute between the union and the company. The issues can range from wages and benefits to working conditions. Strikes are typically organized to put pressure on the company and the management to reach an agreement that is favorable to the autoworkers.
