President Joe Biden is addressing contract negotiations between the United Auto Workers (UAW) and the Detroit Three automakers

Strikes initiated by the UAW at three factories are among the most significant labor actions in the US in decades 

The White House announced Biden's plan to address the UAW contract negotiations following the strikes 

The specific time of Biden's remarks has not been provided yet 

Strikes began at General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis-owned Chrysler factories 

President Biden, despite earlier predictions, engaged with union and automaker leaders 

The White House economic adviser urged both sides to work tirelessly to avert a strike 

Discussions are ongoing about emergency assistance for smaller businesses supplying components to US auto manufacturers 

President Biden's support for unions during labor disputes is consistent with his administration's behind-the-scenes efforts to prevent costly work stoppages
