Today, UAW President Shawn Fain released the following statement:
“Today, a Stellantis executive told the press that the company had put forward a proposal to reopen Belvidere Assembly Plant but that they are now taking it back.
That’s how they see these workers. A bargaining chip.
Belvidere Assembly was a profitable plant that just a few years ago supported around 5,000 workers and their families. Now that number is zero, and Stellantis wants to keep playing games.
Their attitude is: Stellantis giveth, and Stellantis taketh away.
Our attitude is: Save Belvidere.”
