DETROIT, Michigan - UAW members have approved a new contract with General Motors, ending their 40-day strike.
The four-year collective bargaining agreement includes an $11,000 signing bonus, two 3% annual raises and performance bonuses.
“General Motors members have spoken,” said Terry Dittes, UAW Vice President and Director of the UAW-GM Department. “We are all so incredibly proud of UAW-GM members who captured the hearts and minds of a nation. Their sacrifice and courageous stand addressed the two-tier wages structure and permanent temporary worker classification that has plagued working class Americans.”
Members will return to work as instructed by General Motors.
