Before 1 January 2024, how many of the "Big Three" US automakers will have a work stoppage (either a strike or a lockout) involving the United Auto Workers (UAW) union?

In July 2023, the UAW (officially the "International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America") and the "Big Three" US automakers (Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, which includes Chrysler) kicked off negotiations on new collective bargaining agreements (CNBC). The current contracts are set to expire on 14 September 2023, and both sides are preparing for a potentially contentious fight (CNN). A work stoppage need not include all of an automaker's employees represented by the UAW to count, but a strike must have been approved by the UAW International Executive Board and/or International President per Article 50 of the UAW constitution (UAW, GM Authority, Key Differences). The question would close early upon the ratification of new collective bargaining agreements with all three automakers.
The question closed "3" with a closing date of 14 September 2023.
