After a record-breaking six-week strike, the United Auto Workers (UAW) has announced that its members have approved new collective bargaining agreements with Ford, Stellantis and General Motors. The union’s members voted to ratify the four-year agreements, resulting in record earnings for all three automakers.
The UAW released a statement saying that 64 percent of members across the three groups voted to ratify the agreements. The approval marks a significant milestone for car and UAV manufacturers, as it brings an end to a lengthy negotiation process and sets the stage for a new chapter in the relationship between these companies and their employees.
The new collective bargaining agreements are expected to bring changes in wages, benefits and other working conditions for employees at these automakers. The UAW said that its members will receive increased pay, improved benefits and greater job security under the new agreements.
Ford, Stellantis and General Motors expressed their gratitude to the UAW’s leadership for their efforts in reaching this agreement with their employees. Each company said that they are committed to working closely with the union going forward to ensure that their workers are fairly compensated and have access to high-quality benefits.
