After standing strong on the picket line for nearly a month, UAW Local 174 members at Constellium Automotive in Van Buren Charter Township, MI, have ratified a new contract.
The agreement provides improved contractual language, including a stronger grievance procedure and additional holidays, while also securing strong pay increases for workers.
“These contract negotiations were very difficult,” said Region 1A Director, Laura Dickerson. “The company was unwilling to work with us and repeatedly cancelled negotiating sessions. Despite this, our members stood together and forced Constellium to offer them a contract that reflects their immense value to the company.”
Local 174 members returned to work this Monday.
Constellium Van Buren supplies parts for the Ford F-150, F-150 Lightning, Explorer and Super Duty at six UAW-represented Ford Assembly plants.
