DETRIOT, Mich. (WYTV) – Starting on Sunday, United Auto Workers members on strike against General Motors will get more money and the option for part-time work.
Workers will now make $275 a week instead of $250.
The decision was authorized by UAW executives on Saturday.
The increase was initially scheduled for Jan. 1, 2020.
Along with the increase, workers can also take on part-time jobs without it affecting their strike pay.
According to the UAW, members have to continue their picket duties in order to get the strike increase and part-time work opportunity.
