The United Automobile Workers ends their 40-day strike against General Motors after a new contract is ratified.
General Motors and the United Auto Workers announce that they have reached a tentative deal to end a month-long strike that cost the company US$2 billion. It will be sent to union members tomorrow for final approval. If approved, workers will receive a pay raise and temporary workers will be granted a more simplified path to full-time employment.
General Motors announces it will cease production at the Oshawa Car Assembly in Oshawa, Lordstown Assembly in Lordstown, Ohio, and the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly in Detroit. Two transmission plants, the Baltimore Transmission in Baltimore and the Warren Transmission in Warren, Michigan, are also expected to stop production.
U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman rules General Motors Co., and its outside law firm King & Spalding, do not have to turn over lawyer-client documents from previously settled ignition switch lawsuits to plaintiffs’ lawyers in pending cases.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and the United Auto Workers (UAW) reach a new tentative four-year labor agreement, averting a threatened strike of the automaker’s U.S. operations. The agreement must be ratified by a vote of FCA's 40,000 U.S. union workers, who rejected the previous proposal earlier this month. If ratified, the UAW intends to use the pact as a template for negotiations with General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Company.
