Started more than a month ago, the strike continues at Mack Trucks in the United States with consequences on the production of the Volvo group, its parent company. The 4,000 workers voted against a five-year tentative agreement that the UAW, the main union, reached with the company.
Mack Trucks factories in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida are mainly impacted by the movement, with engine production particularly affected.
The union agreement included below-inflation raises and no cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), as well as a weakening of job security rules and a lengthening of the work day.
In 2021, Volvo Trucks employees had already mobilized, once again opposing the agreement between the union and management.
While it was able to end the strike at Ford, General Motors and Stellantis, the union is struggling to end the movement at Mack Trucks.
