UAW locals support Chrysler deal

Associated Press
Published October 25, 2007


WARREN, Mich. - Chrysler workers at three of four key United Auto Workers union locals voting Wednesday approved a new contract with the company, the presidents of the locals said. Votes were still being tallied late Wednesday at the fourth.

The four union locals voting Wednesday represent more than 8,600 workers - or roughly 19 percent of the 45,000 workers who would be covered by the historic four-year agreement.

The votes were good news for UAW president Ron Gettelfinger, who has faced serious challenges from some members opposed to the deal.

The tentative agreement must be ratified by a majority of members to go into effect.
