UAW employees will begin voting on Saturday on a tentative agreement with General Motors. The vote will last until Friday, meaning there will be at least another week of strike action. Until 2015, the main requirement for workers was to address legacy employees before 2007. When this year`s interim agreement did not raise concerns, workers voted against it and forced negotiators back to the negotiating table. The following agreement called these workers “progress” and established an eight-year pay scale (while the contract was still only four years old). He passed Chrysler, but he barely squeaked with GM and Ford. Details of the agreement include: a way for temporary full-time workers to become permanent, a ratification bonus of $11,000, no changes in the health sector and wage increases. UAW Local 659 and Local 598 each indicated that an interim contract between the company and the union had been concluded late on Thursday afternoon, October 17. Will the interim agreement be voted up or down? UAW officials advertise, even though they recognize plant closures. Lordstown workers say they will reject it and encourage others to do the same. A first remark about a Listserv offered this evaluation: “As with the last contract. No factory closures and require a UAW authorization to be able to use Time. GM broke those rules last time, so why trust them now? The UAW National Council delayed by several hours on Thursday a vote on a separate interim agreement with GM for 48,000 workers per hour, as talks with Aramark continued.
“If we hear that they have reached an interim agreement and nothing has been said about us, it has put a lot of local members in turmoil, because what does that mean?” said Tamara Sullivan. “Does this mean that they will have to cross our line if we are exactly the same local union?” UAW attackers, who spent five weeks on the picket line, the longest route in decades, continue to manage what is still in the agreement.
