The United Auto Workers union wants to emerge from its strike against Detroit’s three major automakers with at least a 30% pay raise, according to people familiar with the matter.
That’s the level — which is lower than the around 40% hike it initially proposed to Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co. and Stellantis NV — that the union believes will allow it to satisfy existing members and organize non-union plants.
Automaker stocks were buoyed by the news. GM and Stellantis’ US shares each gained 2.5% on Thursday, while Ford rose 1.4%.
A wage bump of at least 30% is expected to generate interest from non-unionized auto workers and help grow the union’s membership, according to the people.
bump：名詞，增加。例句：I intend to ask for a 10% salary bump.（我打算要求加薪10％。）
buoy：動詞，鼓舞，激勵。例句：We are buoyed by the support from all over the world.（來自世界各地的支持，使我們備受鼓舞。）
