In efforts to reduce reliance on China, the Biden Administration announced a highly anticipated set of rules designed to restrict electric vehicle manufacturers from sourcing battery materials from China and other foreign adversaries. This will impact which cars qualify for tax credits. Automakers have until January 1 to comply with the rules.For more, KCBS Radio news anchor Holly Quan spoke with Bloomberg's Joe Deaux in today's Tech and Business Report.
Listen to this week's Left of Lansing "Friday Short," where I highlight a major UAW organizational push to attract thousands of non-union workers with other automakers. Also, notice again how Republicans across the board are AWOL when it comes to standing up for workers' rights.

On this week's hemp podcast, Lancaster Farming talks with Cole Gibbs and Adam Dietrich from Colorado-based Dama BioPlastics. The company specializes in biomaterials and bioplastics made from upcycled agricultural plant waste, including industrial hemp which is abundant in Colorado's flourishing hemp and cannabis industries. Dietrich, Dama's director of material science, said they're not using industrial hemp exclusively, but of all the plant waste, “it's one of the best that we've seen,” and the carbon makeup of the hemp waste “is quite high, 40% to 45%,” he said. “Then we convert that material into usable drop-in replacements for automotive plastics (and) the construction industries,” said founder and CEO Gibbs. One of the products the company makes is called Dama Black, a bio-based replacement for carbon black, a material widely used in petroleum-based plastics. “Carbon black is a fossil fuel byproduct,” Gibbs said. “Basically, it's the soot inside the chimneys when they're burning material that gets added to plastics to generate the black colorant and UV protection.” Carbon black is ubiquitous — from tires to toys, electronics to car parts. It is in nearly every black plastic in use today, Gibbs said. Because Dama Black is a carbon negative bio-based material, it is very attractive to automakers seeking to de-carbonize their vehicles and production lines. One such company is Swedish automaker Polestar, which has set ambitious climate-carbon goals for its fleet of electric cars. Polestar is partnering with Dama BioPlastics for the Polestar 0 Project which aims to eliminate — not just reduce — all greenhouse gas emissions from every aspect of production by 2030. Gibbs said Dama BioPlastics is one of the only exclusive North American partners “for the Polestar 0 project for all of their electric vehicles going forward.” Gibbs said Dama Black will be used in everything that would normally be used in traditional petroleum plastic, from interior pieces and window switches to dashboards and exterior trim. “We're even looking into the automotive tires and the rubber seal, the gear around the door frames and everything,” he said. Gibbs said his company is also working with the Polestar team “to eliminate the massive volume of different types of polymers that are used in vehicles” which, he said, can number between 40 and 50 different materials. “We want to shrink that down into a smaller number, so it's more easily recycled,” he said.
There are indications today that General Motors is making some significant moves to fix its Cruise self-driving vehicle business. WWJ Auto Beat Reporter Jeff Gilbert joins us with more. The UAW has now officially confirmed that all three auto contracts have been ratified. Ford says it's going to need to find other savings to offset what it calls "significant costs" added by the new contract. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

The Big Three have fallen like a house of cards.The UAW's historic Stand Up strike has come to an end – for now, at least. After forty-four days on the picket line, the Auto Workers have reached tentative agreements with each of the Big Three automakers. GM was the last domino to fall on Saturday, October 28, just days after Ford and then Stellantis acquiesced to their own tentative deals.50,000 strikers have returned to work, and all 146,000 Big Three union members are now voting on the contracts. While it's up to the workers to decide whether the deals are adequate, one thing is already clear: the UAW has turned the tide on decades of concessionary bargaining.For this episode, we invited Barry Eidlin back on the show to unpack the gains and wider implications of the UAW's tentative agreements. Barry Eidlin is an associate professor of sociology at McGill University, who studies class, labor, politics and social movements. He is the author of Labor and the Class Idea in the United States and Canada, published by Cambridge University Press in 2018.We explore why the agreements may represent a shift toward a "new kind of unionism," how the UAW's prospects for organizing the rest of the auto industry may have changed, and what listeners should be following in the rest of the labor movement.Read the transcript of this podcast here. *Hosted by Teddy OstrowEdited by Teddy OstrowProduced by NYGP & Ruby Walsh, in partnership with In These Times & The Real NewsMusic by Casey GallagherCover art by Devlin Claro Resetar**Support the show at Patreon.com/upsurgepod.Follow us on Twitter @upsurgepod, Facebook, The Upsurge, and YouTube @upsurgepod.***Read Barry Eidlin's article on the Belvedere plant in Jacobin.Help us continue producing radically independent news and in-depth analysis by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer:Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-podSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/newsletter-podLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

In the final, crossover episode of our three-part Halloween series, Eric Monterastelli, Public Sector SE at Delinea, Founder, Crew Chief of Gran Touring Motorsports and Host of the Break/Fix Podcast, joins Carolyn Ford and Tracy Bannon to discuss the scary reality of car security. Is your car spying on you? Can a nefarious actor take over your car? Does your car know your deep personal data like your immigration status, race and more? Hint: It can and it does.Key Topics00:02:05 Technology advances put vehicles at risk.00:06:25 Hijacked Jeep's wireless signal, turning it off.00:07:35 Chrysler systems hacked due to digital admission.00:10:47 New EV platforms streamline technology for efficiency.00:15:13 Disconnect, purge and be careful: data can be accessed.00:18:58 Using TrueCar, author obtained personal information illegally.00:21:54 Pre-OBD2 Mercedes is OBD1.00:25:12 Mozilla uncovers alarming auto data collection.00:28:29 Future vehicles will have integrated alcohol-detection systems.00:32:48 Routers, cars can be hacked, collect data.00:35:42 Read your vehicle's owner's manual for instructions.00:36:55 Speak to rental clerk about removing data.The Intersection of Cybersecurity, Car Security and the Ghostbusters MissionGhostbusters Mission: Car Security & Car HackingEric Monterastelli talks about how cars have evolved to include more computing technology, which opens them up to potential attacks. He gives the example of a Jeep that was hacked to shut off while driving, demonstrating the real dangers. Tracy Bannon contrasts U.S. car manufacturers that use many third-party components versus Tesla's more integrated system. She argues Tesla's approach may lend itself to more car security. The hosts explore different potential attack vectors into vehicles, like Bluetooth connections.Mozilla Participants Share Automotive InfoSec InsightsEric Monterastelli shares findings from a Mozilla report about the wide range of deep personal data that can be collected from cars. Including things like facial expressions, weight, health information and more. The hosts are alarmed by the privacy implications.Tracy Bannon advocates that car manufacturers need to make cybersecurity a priority alongside traditional safety. She indicates cars are data centers on wheels, collecting information that gets sent back to big cloud data centers. They emphasize the need for vigilance from car owners about what information they allow their vehicles to collect.Concerns About Data Collection in Modern VehiclesModern Car Security: Braking, Speed and Steering PatternsEric discusses the extensive data that is now collected by modern vehicles, especially EVs. He notes that information is gathered on things like stopping distances, brake pressure applied, vehicle speed and overall driving habits. This data is no different than the type of driver performance analysis done in race cars. Automakers are collecting real-world usage data from customer vehicles to analyze driving patterns and vehicle responses. Tracy adds that the average new vehicle contains over 100 different computers and millions of lines of code that are all networked together. This networked data covers areas like powertrain functions, safety features and infotainment systems. All of this interconnected data presents opportunities for tracking very detailed driving behaviors.Privacy Risks in Driving: Collecting Personal Data and ConcernsEric cites a concerning report that modern vehicles can potentially collect extremely sensitive personal data simply through normal driving. Including information on immigration status, race, facial expressions, weight,...

The United Auto Workers union has agreed to a tentative new contract with General Motors, two days after the union expanded the strike at the carmaker. After a bruising six week walkout at America's big three unionised carmakers, the historic strike could soon be over if union members approve the agreements. The union also said that the lowest-paid workers at Stellantis would see wages rise by more than 165% over the period of the agreement.

The United Auto Workers expanded its strike this week, targeting some of the most profitable plants of Detroit's automakers. The strikes now involve 46,000 workers at 40 assembly plants and parts centers around the country. On its 41st day, a deal with the Big Three automakers remains elusive. Stephanie Sy discussed where things stand with David Shepardson of Reuters. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
This week we have to start with some difficult news. While we do talk about Starbucks Workers United's statement in support of Palestinian liberation it is in response to Starbucks' attack on the workers for their stance. We also talk about Israel revoking work permits to people who live in Gaza and the abuses that they perpetrate on the Palestinian people while they are made literally illegal while at work outside Gaza. We then talk about Amazon's use of a Kafala like system in Saudi Arabia to exploit Nepali, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, and other workers with no intent on stopping. Back in the US, OSHA has once again failed to protect workers by giving a cheap fine to a PA chocolate factory responsible for 7 worker deaths. Prime Healthcare workers strike for all of the same reasons healthcare workers across the country have been striking for year, safe staffing levels. In Detroit, 3 Casinos covered by five unions go on strike after being forced to take a major cut at the beginning of the ongoing covid pandemic. In service work, Coffee by Design workers in Maine organize with LIUNA, and Waffle House workers demand $25/hr and better conditions while working with the USSW. We wrap up our reporting this week with an update on the UAW Stand Up Strike at the Big 3 Automakers, how Ford is crying poverty, where negotiations currently are, and Stellantis hiring strike breaking goons.

Welcome to another amazing week in Retail Automotive. Today we discuss the weekend happenings in the ongoing strikes in Detroit and Canada. We also talk about the big changes in EV demand, as well as WalMarts approach to finding and investing in talent. Show Notes with links:While Canadian union UNIFOR ratifies the GM deal by over 80% getting factory workers back to work, all is quiet on the UAW front over the weekend. Is it possible that no news is good news?After a brief 12 hour strike, a deal ensuring a nearly 20% wage increases for longtime workers over a three-year period, along with bonuses and other benefits has been ratified by the Canadian union. Union President, Lana Payne said at a press conference, “This agreement reflects true collective bargaining. Our goal was to bring more fairness and equity to auto workplaces and to lift everyone up. We did that.” Meanwhile, there have been no new strikes or moves announced by the UAW since Friday since Ford announced they were at the end of their bargaining rope. As of last week, over 39% of parts suppliers to the industry have said they have laid off workers as a result of the ongoing dispute and say that number could reach as high as 70%A pair of Wall Street Journal articles over the weekend are highlighting the ongoing struggle to separate the EV hype from actual consumer demand as a leaked internal memo may be revealing the reality of a significant drop in Ford F150 Lightning orders.While EV sales rose by 51% this year, the rate has decelerated and inventories are accumulating. Automakers are adjusting expectations, with some shifting focus to hybrids. Initial EV enthusiasts have made purchases, leaving a more cautious buyer base. This slowdown contrasts last year's demand surge. “It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that our sales for the Lightning have tanked,” a UAW official wrote in a leaked memo, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal. Ford is considering reducing shifts at its F-150 Lightning pickup plant due to declining sales after an initially strong performance.The electric truck's sales have recently dropped, with a 45.8% decrease in U.S. vehicle sales in the third quarter.Production had halted during the summer for a six-week expansion, affecting deliveries.Retail behemoth Wal Mart is shifting its focus from degrees to skills, offering more short-form certificates, and investing $1 billion in career training by 2026. Currently, 75% of Walmart's salaried managers in the U.S. started in hourly positions.Walmart is expanding its education benefits, now offering 25 short-form certificates in collaboration with Guild.Hosts: Paul J Daly and Kyle MountsierGet the Daily Push Back email at https://www.asotu.com/ JOIN the conversation on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/company/asotu/ Read our most recent email at: https://www.asotu.com/media/push-back-email ASOTU Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/automotivestateoftheunion
