ATA’s Statement on President’s Visit to UAW Picket Line

Sep 25, 2023

Washington – In advance of President Joe Biden’s planned visit to Michigan on Tuesday to join the United Auto Workers’ picket line, ATA President & CEO Chris Spear released this statement:
“President Biden has escalated this conflict. This is nothing but political theater.

“Rather than mediating a swift resolution, the President has chosen one party over the other. This affront to U.S. businesses is already killing supply chain jobs and upending livelihoods.

“He ran as a uniter but is now using the bully pulpit to stoke division.”
