    Default Auto union now turns focus to Fiat Chrysler; strike possible

    The United Auto Workers union on Monday turned its bargaining focus to Fiat Chrysler, raising the possibility of another strike against a Detroit automaker.

    Ford workers ratified their contract Friday night, while the union settled with General Motors last month after a 40-day strike by 49,000 workers that shut down the company's U.S. production.

    Ford, which has 55,000 UAW workers, mostly followed the pattern agreement set at GM. But industry analysts say the same deal will cost Fiat Chrysler a lot more money because of the makeup of its workforce.

    Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley said recently that automakers are in "different conditions" in terms of labour forces, hinting the company may be reluctant to follow the pattern.

    The union, however, expects FCA to follow the template set by GM and Ford.

    "We look forward to bargaining a fair, balanced and patterned contract as FCA is a profitable company," the UAW said in a statement. "You cannot brag about your earnings to Wall Street and at the same time ignore the sacrifice of your workforce that put you in that profitable position."

    GM files racketeering lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler, claiming company bribed union for favorable contracts

    General Motors filed a racketeering lawsuit against rival automaker Fiat Chrysler on Wednesday, accusing the company of bribing officials at the United Auto Workers union for more favorable contracts.

    The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Michigan, alleges that Fiat Chrysler gave more than $1.5 million worth of payments and other things of value to UAW officers to manipulate contract negotiations during the course of two collective bargaining agreements in 2011 and 2015.

    “While a full accounting of the damage inflicted on GM is unknowable at this time without discovering additional details of the scheme, GM estimates that it has incurred massive monetary damage in the form of higher costs that it seeks in relief,” the complaint said. “This damage is a direct, substantial, and foreseeable consequence of this bribery scheme orchestrated by [Fiat Chrysler parent group] FCA Group and the many acts of racketeering that fueled the scheme.”
    Well this might cause a slight problem.

    Tentative agreement reached between FCA and the UAW.

    Fiat Chrysler Reach Tentative 4-Year Contract With Auto Union
    (DETROIT) — The United Auto Workers and Fiat Chrysler reached a tentative agreement Saturday on a new four-year contract, which includes a total of $9 billion in investments but still needs final approval from workers.

    Both sides declined to offer details on the deal, but it includes a $9,000 bonus for workers when the agreement is ratified, a promise not to close any factories where vehicles are assembled for the next four years, and a commitment to keep making vehicles at a plant in Belvidere, Illinois, according to a person briefed on the matter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are confidential.

    The UAW-FCA national council will meet Dec. 4 to go over the details of the tentative deal. If adopted, it would go to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ 47,000 union workers, and a vote by hourly and salary workers could begin on Dec. 6.
