General Motors agrees to boost wages 8.5% at the Silao plant in Guanajuato


SILAO, GUANAJUATO (May 12, 2022) – U.S. automaker General Motors has agreed to raise wages 8.5% in a new collective contract for its production hub in the central Mexican city of Silao, the plant’s new union SINTTIA said on Thursday, May 12th.

SINTTIA became the first independent union at the plant in one of the first union elections under a new trade deal, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which seeks to reduce the vast wage gap between U.S. and Mexican workers.
