Statement from President Joe Biden on the UAW Tentative Agreement

I applaud the UAW and Daimler for reaching a tentative agreement for a record contract. The UAW workers at Daimler are building the trucks and school buses of the future right here in America.

My Investing in America agenda will continue to create good jobs. This agreement is a testament to the power of collective bargaining and shows that we can build a clean energy economy with strong, middle-class union jobs.

April 28 2024 White House. Washington, DC.


President Joe Biden praised the United Auto Workers (UAW) and Daimler Truck for reaching a tentative agreement on a new labor contract, averting a potential strike involving around 7,000 workers[2][3]. Biden commended the agreement as a “record-breaking contract” that will provide UAW workers at Daimler with significant wage increases, cost-of-living adjustments, and profit-sharing for the first time[2][3].

The President emphasized that this agreement demonstrates the power of collective bargaining and the potential to build a clean energy economy with robust, middle-class union jobs[2][3]. Biden’s statement underscores his support for unions and his Investing in America agenda, which aims to create good jobs[3].

The tentative agreement with Daimler comes on the heels of the UAW’s successful negotiations with Detroit’s “Big Three” automakers last fall, which yielded record wage increases for union members[3]. The UAW has also made inroads in organizing workers at foreign automakers’ plants in the Southern United States, with a recent victory at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee[3].
