UAW National Chrysler Council Leaders to Convene for Vote on Friday, Oct. 9
Terms to be announced following Friday vote
Detroit, Mich. – After a lengthy bargaining process, the UAW FCA National Bargaining Committee has secured significant gains in a proposed Tentative Agreement with FCA US announced today.
The bargaining committee unanimously voted to send the proposed Tentative Agreement to local union leaders who make up the union’s UAW National Chrysler Council. The UAW Chrysler Council will meet in Detroit at 11 am on Friday to discuss and vote on the agreement.
“We heard from our members, and went back to FCA to strengthen their contract,” said UAW President Dennis Williams. “We’ve reached a proposed Tentative Agreement that I believe addresses our members’ principal concerns about their jobs and their futures. We have made real gains and I look forward to a full discussion of the terms with our membership.”
Until the UAW National Chrysler Council votes to approve the deal, it is classified as a proposed Tentative Agreement. The contract language becomes a Tentative Agreement if the Council votes to approve it as such. Providing the Council approves, the UAW will release details of the Tentative Agreement to its membership and the ratification process will begin. A vote of the UAW FCA membership will decide whether or not the deal is finalized.
If the UAW Chrysler Council adopts the Tentative Agreement Friday, the union plans to make the details of the agreement available immediately.
