General Dynamics Plus: GM, UAW proposed to reach the provisional agreement; The strike continues The provisional agreement comes at a time of upheaval for the UAW. Earlier this month, union president Gary Jones abruptly resigned after he was accused of abusing union money. Jones has not been charged with a crime. His lawyer told the Detroit News that he resigned to avoid “hijacking the union`s core mission, improving the lives of its members and their families.” Marick Masters, an economics professor at Wayne State University who specializes in labor issues, said the interim agreement “represents a big step forward for the UAW and its membership in times of concern.” Fiat Chrysler Automobiles signed a temporary employment contract with the United Auto Workers on Saturday, making it the last of Detroit`s three major automakers to reach an agreement with the union this year.

Rory Gamble, President of the UAW, thanked the members of the UAW-FCA for their patience and hard work. “The ACF has been a great American success thanks to the hard work of our members. We have achieved significant gains and job security measures for the fastest growing automotive company in the United States,” said Gamble. “During the previous four-year contract, FCA welcomed more than 6,400 new UAW members.” The proposed interim agreement will be discussed Thursday by the National Council, nearly 200 union leaders who meet in Detroit at 10.30 .m Thursday. If they agree, an interim agreement will be formally submitted to the ratification of GM staff represented by the UAW. Details of investment investments will be interesting in the proposed DCA agreement. According to previous Reports by the Free Press, GM has pledged to invest $7.7 billion in U.S. production and create or maintain 9,000 jobs, and Ford has committed $6 billion to create or preserve 8,500 jobs. “Out of respect for our members, we will refrain from commenting further or publishing full details of the agreement until the leaders of the AAV Council meet and verify the details,” Estrada said. The announcement of an agreement came Saturday morning after a meeting at the FCA`s Conner Center in Detroit, the former production plant of the Dodge Viper. Although several union members have told the Free Press that they expect the workers to finally agree to an agreement, this is not guaranteed.

Fiat Chrysler confirmed the deal in a statement, but did not give further details on the outlines of the deal. UAW and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have reached an interim agreement that adds nearly 8,000 jobs over the life of the agreement. The agreement could be the latest round of months of contract disputes between unions and automakers.
