“We’re disappointed that the UAW chose to disrespect our customers by expanding their strike to the parts distribution centers. Fulfilling customer needs and maintaining their continued loyalty is a top priority. As a result, our contingency plans will serve the mobility needs of our loyal individual and professional customers including families, business owners, critical first responders and front-line workers; who all rely on their vehicles for a safe and reliable means of transportation and have absolutely nothing to do with the strike.
Over the last several days, we’ve witnessed an escalation of dangerous behavior by UAW picketers at different parts distribution facilities. Stellantis strongly condemns these actions and we call on UAW President Fain to immediately address these behaviors and support the highest level of safety at the picket lines for all employees.”
