DETROIT (AP) — The next two days will be critical in deciding the fate of a new four-year contract between Fiat Chrysler and the United Auto Workers.
In early voting, workers at several factories rejected the deal, but those at a pickup truck plant in Warren, Michigan, voted in favor.
UAW leaders are still hoping that the contract will pass at large factories in Belvidere, Illinois; Sterling Heights, Michigan; and Toledo, Ohio. Results should be tallied Wednesday or Thursday at the plants, which together employ more than 12,000 workers. The union represents about 40,000 Fiat Chrysler workers.
The UAW reached a tentative agreement with the company two weeks ago that includes pay raises but doesn't end lower wages for newer workers. The contract could be a template for talks with General Motors and Ford.
