Volkwagen Latest to Raise Pay After Record UAW Contracts

UAW wins expanding across industry

Big UAW deals mean better pay for more autoworkers

Volkswagen expected to announce 11 percent wage hikes

How successful were the United Auto Workers with their latest round of contract negotiations? Nearly every automaker that isn’t a member has given its workers record raises. Volkswagen is the latest.

Volkswagen has reportedly raised its worker pay by 11 percent at its Chattanooga, TN, plant, via FT.

This week alone, Nissan and Hyundai announced double-digit increases, Honda and Toyota announced smaller increases, and Subaru is expected to detail raises of its own later this week.

“These historic union victories are not only improving the lives of union members, but that is beginning to spill over into the lives of non-union workers in America as well,” Senator Bernie Sanders said in a Senate subcommittee meeting. He compared it to Amazon worker wage increases that followed a Teamsters deal earlier this year.

UAW president Shawn Fain has said that he wants this effort to grow. The current Big Three contracts are set to end in 2028, to give time for more widespread organisation.

“We are going to organise like we’ve never organised before, because our strike has shown the Nissan worker in Alabama, and the Volkswagen worker in Tennessee, and the Toyota worker in Kentucky, and the Tesla worker in California that when union members win, the entire working-class wins,” he said.
