Thousands of autoworkers at Toyota, Honda and others move to unionize after UAW victory over the Big Three

The United Auto Workers (UAW), one of the most powerful labor unions in the United States, recently secured a big victory with the Big Three automakers General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler. The UAW negotiated for a raise for workers and a ban on outsourcing production work to Mexico in the new deal.

This news has prompted other workers at other automakers, such as Toyota, Honda and other foreign automakers operating in the U.S., to unionize and demand similar concessions from their employers. This movement has been largely successful in gaining traction, and many workers at Toyota and Honda have already formed unions and made progress on their negotiations.

The UAW victory has indicated to the rest of the industry that workers can come together and push for better wages and working conditions, and they are responding. With the support of the UAW behind them, workers have been more successful in their unionizing efforts. If the trend continues, more and more workers may soon be covered by unions and see substantial gains in wages and benefits.
