Fiat Chrysler Hourly Workers to Vote on Second Proposed Labor Contract With UAW

0

About 40,000 Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) hourly workers begin voting Tuesday on a new four-year labor agreement negotiated by the United Auto Workers union, following rejection of the first pact by a wide margin.

The latest proposal includes a wage rate that has been sweetened by FCA management. The UAW, using Facebook and other social media, intensified efforts to explain the contract to members and answer questions. Last month, 65% of those voting were against the contract, with many telling reporters they didn't understand the details or wanted to know more.

Newer workers said they want to narrow the gap between their wages and those of veteran workers. In 2007, the UAW agreed to a lower tier of wages for new hires in order to relieve financial pressure on the Detroit-based automakers. The latest proposal omits the idea of a health-care trust to lower medical costs.
