Starting small would let UAW stretch its strike fund

Estimates have projected that the union’s $825 million fund, designed to pay eligible workers $500 a week while picketing, would support up to an 11-week strike of its 146,000 members at all three automakers.

By targeting just one plant at each of the Big Three at first, the UAW could potentially make that money go further.

It would need to distribute strike pay to just the 12,700 workers at the three chosen sites initially.
