UAW-strike-GM-deal-ratified-voting-over

Voting on GM's tentative deal with union-represented employees was the closest of the three automakers affected by the strike that started Sept. 15.

United Auto Workers members working at GM facilities voted to accept their proposed labor contract, officially ending the strike, according to voting results posted Nov. 16 by the UAW.

The final tally shows about 36,000 hourly employees at facilities across the U.S. voted---54.7% in favor, 45.3% against. Another 112 salaried employees also voted, 92% in favor.

UAW members at Ford and Stellantis plants are still casting votes on their proposed contracts, but the employees who have voted so far have done so overwhelmingly in support. Both contracts are also expected to be ratified after voting closes at 4 p.m. ET Nov. 16.

The day before, Nov. 15, UAW members also ratified a new five-year collective bargaining agreement with Mack Trucks covering about 3,900 employees at facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida, after the union rejected a prior deal, The Center Square reported.

The UAW posted on social media: “After 39 days on strike, UAW members at Mack Trucks have voted by 93% to ratify their new contract with significant local improvements.”

The companies haven’t revealed specific contract details.
