Members of UAW Local 892 voted last week to ratify a new four-year contract. The 1,900 members, employed by auto parts manufacturer Faurecia interior Systems in Saline, Michigan, build parts for Fiat Chrysler, Ford, and Tesla vehicles.
The contract was passed with 83% support from the workers and will implement periodic pay raises over the next four years, institute a $2,500 signing bonus, and create a union health and safety representative position.
The vote came less than a week after Local 892 members went on a nine-hour strike following the expiration of their previous contract.
