A statement from UAW President Dennis Williams regarding the UAW-GM National Agreement ratification


Share This

The International Union, UAW’s International Executive Board met to discuss the ratification results for the tentative National Agreement recently negotiated with General Motors LLC. As previously noted, while the majority of the entire UAW-GM membership voted in favor of the tentative agreement by a 55.4 to 44.6 percent margin, the skilled trades membership voted against ratification. Beginning late last week, following receipt of these ratification results, meetings were held with the UAW skilled trades membership at each GM worksite in order to determine the issues for their rejection of the tentative agreement. Based on this feedback from the skilled trades membership, I have determined that further discussion with the company was needed. Such discussions are currently taking place.
