Chrysler Contract Settled

Came home this evening from the match (see previous post) and saw that the contract has been settled. Per the Detroit News:

A new four-year national labor contract between Chrysler LLC and the United Auto Workers has been ratified by rank-and-file workers, overcoming significant opposition.

The agreement was approved by 56 percent of production workers and 51 percent of skilled trades workers, the UAW said in a statement Saturday. Ninety-four percent of office and clerical workers approved the pact and 79 percent of UAW-represented Chrysler engineers voted for the contract.

At least that’s settled. We’ll see what happen to Ford now…

    This is good news to all who live in Auto country. Michigan does not need a strike right now.

    Amen rat! Tom I’ve fixed my blogroll. Thanks for the peace! I can use all I can get.

    Gentlemen – I too did not want a strike. I would rather be working than not, and a strike would not have been the right thing to do in this economy. The last thing that the Union needs is to antagonize the new owners.
