    Default GM & UAW Reach New Four-Year Contract

    Making progress here, folks.

    General Motors, United Auto Workers Reach Agreement On New Four-Year Contract
    DETROIT -- General Motors Co. and the United Auto Workers, sobered by the government bailout and bankruptcy just two years ago, agreed on a new four-year contract without the public acrimony or strikes that have plagued the talks in the past.

    Details weren't released, but the union said the deal reached late Friday includes some of its major goals, including improvements in profit-sharing, promises of new jobs and better health care benefits. The deal will serve as a template for contracts that still must be negotiated with Chrysler Group LLC and Ford Motor Co., setting the pay and benefits for 112,500 U.S. auto workers. It also will set the bar for pay and benefits at nonunion auto companies and other industries across the country.
    GM was the first of the Detroit Three to reach agreement with the UAW. Chrysler is likely to be next, followed by Ford, where little progress has been made in negotiations so far. The UAW announced the GM agreement just after 11 p.m. EDT Friday, after a little more than seven weeks of closed-door bargaining.

    Default UAW Says GM to Invest 2.5 Billion in New 4-Yr. Contract



    UAW Says GM to Invest $2.5 Billion in New Four-Year Contract - Businessweek
    The accord calls for GM to provide $5,000 lump-sum signing bonuses and boost wages for entry-level workers, the Detroit- based UAW said today in a briefing with reporters. GM will invest $419 million to reopen an assembly plant in Tennessee to make two midsize cars and hire 1,710 people, as the Detroit- based automaker adds or retains 6,400 jobs, the union said.

    UAW President Bob King has said the agreement achieves some of the union’s major goals in talks with the largest U.S. automaker, which emerged from U.S.-backed bankruptcy in 2009. Along with the plant in Tennessee, GM pledged to add or retain jobs at six other factories and base its profit-sharing arrangement on a greater portion of the automaker’s earnings.

    Default Sources say: Chrysler, UAW talks break down



    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_977082.html
    The talks ended late Wednesday in a dispute over the number of workers who are paid an entry-level wage, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the negotiations are private.
    Instead, Chrysler and UAW negotiating teams were sent home after the talks resulted in a stalemate. The union said it will now focus on talks with Ford. No more bargaining with Chrysler is scheduled.

    GM-UAW Deal Marks New Era - WSJ.com
    BY SHARON TERLEP AND MATTHEW DOLAN
    In exchange, workers would forgo cost-of-living increases that, until recently, had long been a way of life for Detroit's auto workers. Higher-wage workers would receive inducements to leave, paving way for lesser paid new hires. Lower-wage workers would get a bump in pay.
    But GM can boast it met its most important objective: fending off permanent increases in labor costs. Its labor expense would increase by less than 1% over the life of the contract and its North American financial break-even point remain essentially unchanged
    The auto maker also gets to hold the line on wages for its more than 40,000 veteran workers who won't received any hourly increase. GM aims to offset the costs with a buyout program to usher out up to 17,000 veteran workers, which would pave way for more low wage workers.
    The UAW's glory days may be over. Gold plated contracts are a thing of the past . Job security and more factories will work.


    that right Jimmy Hoffa?





    “Winning always helps you get momentum,” King said. “When workers see how we play such a key role in the success of the companies, that will have a big impact.”
