UAW Wage Controversy and CEO Compensation

Automakers originally offered nearly half of the 40% pay rise the UAW had requested.

Union links wage proposal to CEO pay growth over the previous four years.

The highest production hourly wage for UAW members is $32.

For the Detroit Three automakers, the estimated labor cost per hour is $66.

In the US, the average hourly wage for all autoworkers is $27.99.

Hourly labor costs for non-union facilities, like Tesla, range from $45 to $55.

Stellantis suggested increasing the starting pay for additional workers.

The tiered system for permanent production workers is something the UAW wants to abolish.
