INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Democratic Party released the following statement today from Chair Mike Schmuhl in solidarity with the UAW and autoworkers as their strike expands today:
“Indiana Democrats stand in solidarity with the United Auto Workers as their strike expands today, including the Hoosiers now on strike who work across state lines at the Chicago Ford assembly plant.
“Autoworkers are fighting for their fair share of the hundreds of billions in profit the Big Three have made in the past decade. They are standing up for what they deserve, demanding security and dignity for their communities and families. It’s time for the automakers to pay the workers instead of Wall Street and their corporate executives.
“The UAW is showing what can be accomplished when workers come together. The labor movement built Indiana and is woven into our heritage. Our state is stronger when more Hoosiers have the ability to join a union.”
