US committee recommends royalties on minerals for EVs in sweeping reform proposal

Sept 12 (Reuters) – “A federal committee on Tuesday recommended imposing royalties on U.S. hard rock mining for the first time, a move it said could increase domestic production by providing funds for the agencies in charge of issuing new mining permits.

The proposal was part of a suite of recommendations aimed at increasing supply of the materials like lithium, cobalt, and nickel that are needed for a domestic electric vehicle (EV) industry that is key to President Joe Biden’s climate agenda.”

The United Auto Workers (UAW) began a strike on Friday against all three of Detroit’s legacy automakers, in an unprecedented move that could initiate a costly and protracted struggle over wages and job security.

After the midnight deadline for a new contract passed, workers walked out on a Ford Motor Co. plant in Michigan that makes Bronco SUVs, a General Motors Co. factory in Missouri that assembles Chevrolet Colorado pickups and a Stellantis NV plant in Ohio that builds Jeep Wrangler SUVs. The union and automakers are still far apart after weeks of talks.

The strategy, which is focused on individual plants, is designed to gradually reduce production of profitable vehicles while minimizing the impact on the UAW strike fund.

The union stated that it will expand the strike to additional locations depending on the progress of negotiations.

“Tonight, for the first time in our history, we will strike all three of the Big Three at once,” UAW President Shawn Fain said late Thursday. “This strategy will keep the companies guessing. It will give our national negotiators maximum leverage and flexibility in bargaining. And if we need to go all out, we will.”

The union said 12,700 workers at three plants will be part of the initial action. UAW members will get $500 a week from the union in strike pay.
