Resolution calls on the Big Three Automakers to negotiate in good faith and offer their workers a fair contract
Hickenlooper joined striking UAW workers on the picket line in Colorado last month
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper, member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, joined 32 of his Senate colleagues to introduce a resolution in solidarity with 150,000 members of United Auto Workers (UAW) bargaining for a fair contract. 34,000 members are currently on strike across the country, including at two locations in Colorado.
“At a time when massive corporations are increasing pay for their CEOs and inflating their stock price with buybacks, unions like UAW give middle-class workers a fighting chance at better pay and conditions,” said Hickenlooper. “I stand with the autoworkers in Colorado and across the country as they push for a fair agreement so they can continue driving our nation forward.”
One of the largest U.S. strikes in the past three decades, autoworkers voted to go on strike in September – calling for better pay, restoration of pension benefits, safer working conditions, expanded benefits, and more.
Last month, Hickenlooper joined UAW workers on the picket line at the Chrysler Mopar Parts Distribution Center in Denver to show his support for the striking workers.
