Auto Workers Seek Higher Pay

UAW

With Pay as Low as $8.50/Hour, Workers Who Make Auto Parts for Ford, GM, Toyota and Mercedes Vow to Do Whatever It Takes to Win Fair Pay, Good Jobs to Lift Local Economy

Dayton, Ohio – Auto parts workers at the Creative Foam plant in Dayton, who are paid as little as $8.50/hour, announced recently that they are seeking to join the United Auto Workers in an effort to win higher wages and improve working conditions.

Most production workers at the Dayton plant see their wages topped out at $12.75/hour, with no regard how much skill or experience they gain on the job. In addition to low pay, the plant often delays hiring workers as permanent employees, locking them into temporary positions with no benefits for as much as eight months.

“I’m the father of two teenage girls, but I almost never get to see them because I have to work close to 70 hours a week just to make enough to raise them,” said Doug Thompson, a forklift operator at Creative Foam who is paid $12.75/hour. “That’s why we’re joining together to win fair pay and have a voice in the workplace. We can’t wait any longer.”

By joining together and speaking out for higher pay, workers at the Dayton plant have already started to win improvements: Last week, nearly two dozen workers marched into the plant’s quarterly meeting and read a letter aloud to senior management detailing the workers’ demands for fair pay and good jobs. The company’s executives promised an immediate one-dollar raise for all of the plant’s production workers.

“Creative Foam manufactures parts for billion dollar companies like Ford, GM, Toyota and Mercedes, but I’m paid not much more than a McDonald’s cook or Walmart cashier,” said Veronica Laster, a trimmer at the Creative Foam plant who is paid $10.50/hour. “We can’t expect good jobs by sitting back and waiting – that’s why we’re standing together and speaking out, and we’re not giving up until we win.”
