UAW strike enters day 4 • Advocates rally for domestic violence gun laws • Driver dead after hitting I-94 wall

President Joe Biden is sending White House officials to Detroit to help with UAW and Big Three negotiations.

Workers are on day four of a strike after the union and automakers failed to reach a contract agreement last week. 

Biden will be sending a White House advisor and acting labor secretary Julie Su to Michigan early this week to offer support in reaching an agreement. How exactly they will help has not been specified. 

Biden's officials aren't the only politicians to get involved. State representatives and United States senators have been showing their support. On Friday, Sen. Bernie Sanders joined union members in Detroit for a solidarity rally.

"The fight you are waging here is not just about decent wages and working conditions and pensions in the automobile industry. It is a fight to take on corporate greed," Sanders said.

Rallies held in support of domestic violence gun laws

If passed, a package of bills in Michigan would prohibit people convicted of both felony and misdemeanor domestic violence charges from buying or possessing firearms for eight years after their sentence. 

Supporters of these laws say they will protect domestic violence survivors. They cite the 50 women and 20 children killed yearly in Michigan by guns in domestic violence situations.

However, gun rights advocates fear these laws could take away some people's rights because what qualifies as domestic violence can be hard to pin down. They are also worried about people being falsely accused of domestic violence. 

Supporters will be rallying around Michigan on Monday as they push to get these laws passed.
