Hill Democrats were quick to pledge solidarity with auto workers as they went on strike Friday.

Congressional Democrats wasted little time in pledging solidarity with United Auto Workers as they formally went on strike with Detroit automakers, seeking a new contract with concessions in areas like pay and benefits.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer released a statement early Friday: “Thousands of UAW workers are fighting for better wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions. I urge the car companies to bargain in good faith to quickly reach a new contract that is fair to workers.”

A host of Michigan Democrats also issued statements of support. Among them:

Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who’s running for Senate: “For the sake of Michigan’s economy and our working families, I hope this strike is short-lived. As someone who used to negotiate international agreements, I know that no one should let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”

Sen. Gary Peters, who joined the picket line early Friday: “UAW members made huge sacrifices to help save the auto industry in 2008 and now that the Big Three are making historic profits, the workers deserve to get their fair share of the success. UAW workers are making the best cars in the world in Michigan and it’s critical they continue to be the future of the industry, especially as we transition to electric vehicles.”

Rep. Dan Kildee: “To the men and women of the UAW on the picket lines — I stand with you, and the American people stand with you, in your fight for a fair contract.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will travel to Detroit later Friday to rally with striking workers, according to UAW and the senator’s office.
