illi News/10242759

CHICAGO - illiNews -- President Joe Biden recently made an unexpected visit to Michigan, offering his direct support to the United Auto Workers (UAW) members currently on strike against John Deere & Co. This presidential visit signifies a significant show of solidarity, underscoring the Biden Administration's continued support for the labor movement in the United States.

Over 10,000 UAW members began their strike against the agricultural machinery company, John Deere, on October 14, marking one of the largest private-sector strikes in the U.S. in recent years. This labor action is a result of failed contract negotiations between the union and the company, with workers demanding better wages and working conditions.

President Biden's visit to the picket line in Michigan not only reaffirms his pro-union stance but also highlights the national significance of the ongoing strike. During his visit, the President emphasized the vital role unions play in ensuring fair wages, benefits, and overall well-being for American workers.
