Non-Union Toyota Workers Get Pay Bump After UAW Wins Own Wage Battle  

Toyota Motors is giving its non-union, hourly U.S. factory workers a salary increase of about 9% starting Jan. 1. The firm announced the pay bump for its employees earning top pay just days after the United Auto Workers scored a huge win in its six-week strike against automakers. So reports Reuters.

Toyota production staff in Kentucky who are at the top pay level will see their pay go up by $2.94 to $34.80 per hour.

UAW workers will be receiving a salary increase of 11% based on a tentative deal the union struck with General Motors, Ford Motor and Stellantis once that agreement is ratified, and 25% wage increases through April 2028.
