Wentzville UAW members approve new GM contract

Wentzville UAW members approve new GM contract

While General Motors employees vote on a proposed labor contract this week, their maintenance coworkers from Aramark are voting on a contract of their own.

Members of Bay City's UAW Local 362 and Flint's UAW Local 598 voted throughout the day Wednesday, Oct. 23, the 38th day of the union's strike against GM. All locals in the 49,000-member UAW must vote on the contract before it can be ratified.

In 2015, rank and file UAW workers at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV rejected the first version of a contract before it was eventually approved. The local said results would not be available until Friday. Almost 50,000 workers at GM plants across the country are on strike for fair wages, affordable health care, a greater share of profits, job security and a defined path to permanent employment for temporary workers.

The UAW's strike against GM began on September 16 and has now lasted 39 days. The proposed contract includes 3% raises, a 4% lump-sum payment, an $11,000 ratification bonus for permanent employees and a $4,500 ratification bonus for temporary employees. Your GM brethren mentioned countless times that your leadership on the picket line inspired them and our nation.
