(CBS DETROIT) - UAW President Shawn Fain called for additional strikes against all General Motors and Stellantis parts distribution facilities. Workers will strike at 38 locations across 20 states.

Fain made the announcement at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 22, where he said significant progress had been made during negotiations with Ford but not with GM and Stellantis. 

With Ford, the UAW made progress with profit sharing, the right to strike over plant closures, income security, the immediate conversion of all temporary employees and more. 

"Ford is showing they are serious about reaching a deal at Ford and GM, it's a different story," said Fain.

  • General Motors Wentzville Assembly Plant in Missouri (UAW Local 2250, Region 4)
  • Stellantis Toledo Assembly Complex (Local 12, Region 2B)
  • Ford Michigan Assembly Plant (Local 900, Region 1A) 

Among the demands from UAW workers are a 36% pay increase, pension benefits for all employees, a four-day, 32-hour work week and more paid vacation time. 

In addition, the UAW wants to see the two-tier wage structure eliminated
