Law’s Juscelino Colares talks about potential effects of United Auto Worker strike

UAW strike: Why the chances of success are better in Stellantis than in GM and Ford
International Business TimesJuscelino Colares, the Schott-van den Eynden Professor of Law, said a broad strike targeting all three automakers could backfire on United Auto Workers, as it has a widespread impact on the U.S. economy. “The first impact of a strike will be felt in auto worker homes and communities, who will see a drop in revenues, as strikers shift to spending less,” he said. “Next, depending on the length and scope of the strike (the UAW will not preside over a general walkout but will only target certain plants), part suppliers will see a decline in orders, which will also affect workers’ compensation and their communities.”
