    UAW organizes Stellantis supplier ZF in Marysville, adds 350 members


    A labor fight in Marysville that included a one-week strike at a multi-billion dollar global supplier to Stellantis ended with an agreement Friday to recognize UAW representation.

    What was once a union shop under Auburn Hills-based Fiat Chrysler Automobiles partnership will continue to be a union shop as now-Stellantis transitions out of the operation, turning it over completely to ZF control. 

    ZF Marysville, shown here, resolved a UAW labor dispute. on Friday. The company secured a nearly $6 billion contract for the facility to supply beam axles and axle drives for Stellantis pickup trucks until 2027.

    Behind the scenes, the situation is a little complicated.

    ZF Marysville has been staffed by UAW Stellantis workers under a UAW contract. During the 2019 contract negotiations, Stellantis agreed to transfer ZF Marysville workers to other Stellantis locations and have ZF staff the plant with ZF employees, the UAW explained in its news release.

    That transition has not been completed. The 350 workers immediately impacted by the UAW deal are ZF employees exclusively. Hundreds of UAW Stellantis employees at ZF now will be transferring to other Stellantis locations.
