We take a look at the historic United Auto Workers strike against Detroit’s Big Three automakers. The union is using a new approach to walking out, called a ‘standup strike,’ and it is striking all three companies at once. One Detroit Senior Producer Bill Kubota takes a look at Detroit’s labor history and where things are headed as the UAW and automakers try to find common ground. 

Story update as of Friday, Sept. 22: This afternoon, the UAW strike expanded to 38 Stellantis and GM parts distribution centers across the country, including 13 facilities in Michigan.
