WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United Auto Workers (UAW) union said on Friday it wants tax incentives for electric vehicles (EVs) revised to require assembly in the United States for those vehicles to qualify. The current $ 7,500 tax incentive does not require electric vehicles to be manufactured in the United States. “The UAW is working with the Biden administration and Congress to ensure that the final legislation extending subsidies to electric vehicles is clear that those investments subsidize the jobs of American workers,” said UAW Vice President Terry. Dittes. General Motors Co (NYSE 🙂 announced Thursday that it would invest $ 1 billion in its operations in Mexico and begin building electric vehicles there in 2023, drawing ire from the UAW.
