The United Auto Workers union has continued to expand its strike as it enters the sixth week, and more than 45,000 workers on strike across America.

It's part of what the UAW is calling the "Stand Up Strike" where they are targeting specific plants.

After starting off with three original plants on strike, the union expanded it to parts distribution plants across the country, and then to major plants for all three automakers.

There are nearly 150,000 UAW members working for the Big Three.

Details of the plants are below.

The Ford Michigan Assembly Plant opened in 1967 and employs about 4,900 employees.
