Hundreds of local UAW members still striking against General Motors have begun voting on a tentative new contract.
Leaders of the United Auto Workers Local 2209 in Fort Wayne on Wednesday went over the agreement’s details, which include permanent jobs for temporary workers and promises an $11,000 bonus if members ratify the deal.
However, the new contract does come with some opposition, as workers in New York and Kentucky have already voted against it as the new agreement because it does not reopen some recently-closed GM plants.
Today marks the 39 day mark of the strike, with voting on the deal set to continue nationwide through Friday.
