Although, as a whole, the United Auto Workers union has ratified a new contract with General Motors, one small hiccup occurred along the way.
UAW workers at the Nexteer assembly plant in Saginaw, Michigan, went on strike late Tuesday after failing to reach a new agreement. The Nexteer plant used to be part of GM directly, but still assembles essential steering components and supplies systems for the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and 2016 GMC Sierra.
According to Reuters, the strike has ended, with third shift workers reporting for duty, according to the Local 699 Facebook page. Details of the new contract have not been disclosed.
The new contract must be ratified by the Local 699 after a resounding rejection occurred Sunday, with 3,103 “No” votes and merely 80 “Yes” votes.
GM has stated the strike has not disrupted its production flow.
