    Ford Workers Ratify Union Contract

      ...56 percent said yes...

    After a lengthy strike at General Motors that cost the company $2.9 billion, the UAW has agreed to a contract with Ford that looks remarkably similar to the one they got with General Motors.  Ford workers ratified the deal on Friday with 56.3 percent voting yes to the new four year agreement.

    The agreement says that Ford will invest more than $6 billion in its U.S. plants and add or retain 8,500 UAW jobs. The UAW used the GM contract as a template for negotiations with Ford. Like the GM contract, there are no changes in healthcare coverage, there is a pathway to full-time employment for temporary workers, pay raises, and lump-sum payments spread over 4 years. 

    The UAW now will turn its attention on FCA where negotiations are due to begin on Monday.

    FORD, Screwed too by the UAW.

    Unions of the future are so gonna look very different than they are now.

    FoMoCo doesn't have the extra cash like their cross town rival to fight the greedy bast@rds either. Bill Ford is also buddy buddy's with his UAW Execs.

    FCA is going to get beat up too. 

    Just heard on the News that GM just filed a lawsuit against FCA for bribing officials in the UAW labor agreements to gain leverage in bargaining with corruption totaling millions of dollars in bribes to lower the labor rate to hire more lower paid and temp workers than GM. Cheaters!! FCA will probably say oh we are PSAFCA now, that's not our problem. :spin:
