State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli Statement on Tentative Agreements to End UAW Strike

October 30, 2023

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli issued the following statement regarding the tentative labor agreements between the UAW and the big three automakers.

“With the announcement of a tentative agreement at General Motors, the end of an historic strike by the United Auto Workers will come to a close. My congratulations to the United Auto Workers and Ford, General Motors and Stellantis for coming to terms that will secure the futures of autoworkers and set the stage for growth, innovation and prosperity at the three companies. I had the opportunity to walk the picket line with members of UAW Local 3039 in Tappan, N.Y.  to learn about the issues facing them and the auto industry, and I wrote to the companies expressing my concerns over the economic and market impacts of the strike. As trustee of New York State Pension Fund, I am thankful that the equitable agreement everyone wanted has been reached. It will not only benefit auto companies and workers, but our state and nation as a whole.”
