UAW Strike Ends: Tentative Agreement Reached with GMSalem-News.com
“We’re proud of this tentative agreement and we look forward to getting into the field and discussing it with our membership,” - UAW President Ron Gettelfinger
(DETROIT) - United Auto Worker negotiators reached a tentative agreement with General Motors at 3:05 AM today.
The strike by union members was recessed at 4:00 AM, and workers will report for work beginning with second shift today. Certain skilled trades workers may be notified to report to work earlier by management at their facilities.
“We’re proud of this tentative agreement and we look forward to getting into the field and discussing it with our membership,” UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said.
The UAW International Executive Board and the UAW GM National Negotiating Committee -- made up of elected representatives from UAW GM locations throughout the country -- have unanimously recommended ratification of the agreement.
“We reached this agreement because of the extraordinary solidarity of our membership, and through a tremendous amount of hard work by the committee they elected to negotiate a new contract,” said UAW Vice President Cal Rapson, director of the union’s GM Department.
Details of the agreement are being withheld pending ratification.
