The United Auto Workers endorsed President Joe Biden for reelection this week, with union leader Shawn Fain making clear that Biden was a far more pro-worker candidate than Donald Trump. The UAW, which represents more than 400,000 workers, primarily in the auto industry, won major new contracts for workers employed by Ford, GM, and Stellantis last year. Biden visited a UAW picket line in Michigan during the union’s strike against the Big Three car makers last September, the first time a sitting president has done so. “Joe Biden bet on the American worker while Donald Trump blamed the American worker,” Fain said in his announcement during the UAW’s political convention in Washington, D.C. Biden reiterated his support for workers as he accepted the union’s endorsement. “Wall Street didn’t build America, the middle class built America and unions built the middle class,” Biden said. “As long as I’m president, the working people are gonna get their fair share. … You deserve it.”
