Concessions vote starts at GM Indianapolis plant

Associated Press

Indianapolis -- Workers at a General Motors stamping plant in Indianapolis are voting by mail-in ballots on whether to accept pay cuts sought by a company wanting to buy the factory that GM plans to close.

The special balloting on the contract offer from Addison, Ill.-based JD Norman Industries was sought by national United Auto Workers officials. Local union leaders tried to prevent a vote, saying they worry GM could use the deal to force concessions elsewhere.

UAW regional director Maurice Davison tells the Indianapolis Business Journal he believes the plant could go from about 640 hourly workers to more than 2,000 under Norman.

The Indianapolis Star reports UAW dissident groups are backing the local union leaders and plan a rally Saturday in the city.

The union ballots will be counted next week.
