General Motors, Ford and Stellantis could not stop the largest workers’ strike – the wage increase seemed small to them

Published

Negotiators from the United Auto Workers and Ford Motor had “fairly productive discussions” on a new contract on Saturday, September 16, with proposals from General Motors, Ford and Stellantis to resume work failing.

About 12,700 UAW workers remain on strike as part of a coordinated union action targeting three U.S. assembly plants – one at each of the Detroit automakers.

Union negotiators and representatives from General Motors, Ford and Stellantis resumed talks Saturday, a day after the UAW launched the most ambitious U.S. labor action in decades.

Last Thursday, Ford CEO Jim Farley said the UAW’s proposals would send the company into bankruptcy, adding that “nothing is happening” in the negotiations.

“As we’ve said, Ford is betting on the UAW more than any other company. We are committed to reaching an agreement with the UAW that rewards our workers and allows Ford to invest in the future. We must win together,” said Ford’s communications director.

On Saturday, Stellantis said it had increased its offer, offering a 20% increase over the four-and-a-half year contract, including an immediate 10% increase. This is in line with offerings from GM and Ford. Stellantis said talks would resume on Monday.

The automakers said the proposals would result in a cumulative 21% wage increase over that period, but they are still well below the 40% wage increase the UAW is demanding through 2027. The union’s wage demands include an immediate 20% increase.

The James Webb telescope discovered planets without a star

The James Webb Space Telescope has discovered hundreds of “planets” that seem to float in the void of space, not attached to any star. And many of them are not completely alone: ​​they appear in pairs.

The discovery of these Jupiter-mass objects in a new scan of Orion has puzzled astronomers and may require a re-evaluation of existing models of planetary system formation.

Scientists have two possible explanations for the unusual phenomenon. These could either be protoplanets that were unlucky enough to form incompletely, or they formed inside solar systems and were later ejected into interstellar space.

These objects have some characteristic features of planets, such as a hot atmosphere with steam and methane, but scientists say that these objects are not technically planets.

Although the hypothesis of objects being ejected from their solar systems is more popular, the fact that James Webb identified about 40 of these objects in pairs complicates the situation.

EU competition authorities are not conducting a formal investigation into chips used for artificial intelligence, the European Commission announced on Monday, October 2.

“The Commission is not conducting a formal investigation into the matter you refer to,” an EU executive spokesman said in an email to Reuters, which asked for comment on the rumors.

A few days earlier, the French antitrust authority raided Nvidia on suspicion of anti-competitive practices. Nvidia declined to comment on the situation after the French raid.

Last week, Bloomberg reported that the EU’s competition watchdog was informally gathering views on potentially unfair practices in the GPU market.

Samsung will release the latest Quasar chips to compete with

Samsung’s contract chip manufacturing division has a new customer in the form of a Canadian startup called Tenstorrent, which develops chips with artificial intelligence technologies.

Tenstorrent is among a number of startups trying to compete with Nvidia, which dominates the AI ​​chip market. The company makes chips for data centers, but is also working to supply other markets, including automotive.

As part of the deal, Tenstorrent plans to use one of Samsung’s advanced manufacturing processes (4nm) to produce chips. Some of Tenstorrent’s chips are built using technology known as RISC-V, an open-source semiconductor architecture that competes with Arm and x86. However, the chip that Samsung will produce is called Quasar and is not based on RISC-V technology.

“Tenstorrent’s goal is to develop high-performance computing and deliver those solutions to customers around the world,” Tenstorrent CEO Jim Keller said in a statement.
