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…

  1. 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.
