Toledo workers’ strike at Hyundai Mobis halts Jeep Gladiator production

However, during the downtime at the plant, it results in the immediate suspension of vehicle production.

On November 15, Stellantis confirmed that the Jeep Gladiator’s production had stopped following a walkout by employees at supplier Hyundai Mobis in Toledo, Ohio.

The United Auto Workers reported that in the wee hours of November 15, roughly 400 employees of Hyundai Mobis went on strike. Mobis spokeswoman Myong Sun Song stated, “We remain committed to continuing negotiations in good faith and hope to reach to an agreement soon.”

Mobis manufactures the chassis for the Jeep Wrangler’s midsize pickup sister. However, during the downtime at the plant, it results in the immediate suspension of vehicle production. After a 31% decline in sales in the U.S. in the first nine months of 2023, the automaker is introducing a redesign for the 2024 model year.

The revamped midsize truck has a starting price of $38,775 and can tow up to 7,700 pounds while carrying 1,725 pounds of payload. Its ground clearance is 11.6 inches, its water-fording depth is 31.5 inches, and its crawl ratio is 84:1. 

Furthermore, the Mobis strike follows a 44-day walkout by Stellantis employees at the Toledo Assembly that ended on October 28. A tentative agreement that includes 27% pay increases, a road to unionization for workers at battery plants, cost-of-living adjustments, higher retirement payments, and accelerated timeframes to the top wage is being ratified by the auto workers.
