UAW members ratify deal with General Motors

Members of the United Auto Workers union have voted to ratify a new collective bargaining agreement with General Motors Co.

The vote was 65 percent in favor of the agreement among production workers, and 63 percent in favor among skilled trades workers.

The UAW and General Motors reached a tentative deal nearly two weeks ago.

    Don't you know that's going over well with the teaparty and their anti-union stance.

    I think this is going over well with nearly every tax payer considering that we bailed out the ungrateful union jerks. The gall of the union is unmeasurable considering striking while this recession rages on. How do you like Obama now?

    i was a AFL-CIO union member for 25 years and the company i worked for always managed to cheat the commissioned workers like myself out of any real wage increase. Even the health plans were changed every year to cut costs. I've been out of work now for 3 years and can honestly say that if i had a job with the starting salary of an american auto worker I would be thrilled. I'm 57 years old and have a chronic health condition and I'm not the first person an employer looks to hire.
