Acting Secretary Su applauds tentative agreement by UAW, Stellantis

WASHINGTON – Acting Secretary of Labor Julie A. Su released the following statement today after a tentative labor agreement was reached between the United Auto Workers and Stellantis: 

“Congratulations to the UAW and Stellantis for their dedication and focus in reaching a hard-won tentative agreement. The significance of this historic achievement coming just days after the UAW and Ford reached an agreement cannot be overstated. 

“This tentative agreement includes a number of important provisions, including a commitment to reopen the Belvidere plant in Illinois, which will bring good, union jobs back to that community. The UAW and Stellantis are also charting a future of good middle class jobs in battery manufacturing, consistent with the President's vision for a just transition where clean climate and good jobs go hand-in-hand.

“Today’s agreement demonstrates what is possible when workers have a voice and a seat at the table. On behalf of the most pro-worker, pro-union administration in history, we applaud the parties on what they have achieved.”
