UAW members have til 4 pm Friday to vote on tentative agreement


INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – General Motors UAW members have until 4 p.m. Friday to vote on a tentative agreement with the company that could end the ongoing strike.

As of noon on Friday, the tally stands at about 60% in favor and about 40% opposed.

The four-year contract would deliver pay increases, keep health care costs the same, provide bonuses, and give workers making less money a path to work their way into upper-tier wages.

A big issue for GM workers was a plan to close four U.S. plants.

The new contract saves one of them, Detroit Hamtramck.

It does not block GM from choosing where in the U.S. to place manufacturing and does not pull any production work back from Mexico.
