Second Shift
The GM-UAW contract ratification vote tally is expected soon.

General Motors’ 52,000 UAW workers are voting on a proposed new contract with the automaker. We get an update and explore what the agreement could mean with Crain’s Automotive’s GM beat writer Mike Colias.

As unionized General Motors workers near the end of voting on a new four year contract, the tally suggests the pact will be approved. Voting continues today, but already, a significant majority of the automaker’s 52,000 workers have voted to support the deal. That includes Lansing UAW locals 652 and 602 and many other Michigan locals.

Highlights include $8,000 signing bonuses and a raise for all workers.

Current State talks with Mike Colias, GM beat writer for the Detroit-based Crain’s Automotive News.
