UAW shifts focus to Ford now keeping GM contract as template.

The four year deal which has been struck with General Motors is now going to be used in the form of a template when the UAW bargains with the rival of GM, Ford Motor. The union has now decided to shift focus to Ford for now after which they are going to go on to Fiat Chrysler.

Ford has confirmed in a statement that UAW has notified them about their plans of negotiations with the company next. The added that as the No.1 vehicle producer in America and the employer of most autoworkers represented by UAW, they are looking at reaching an agreement which is fair and enhances the company’s competitiveness and protect and preserve the jobs of manufacturing sector which pay good.

A strike which lasted 40 days has crippled the production of GM in United States had come to an end on Friday as the workers had approved a contract with GM.

The workers of GM had through a vote, voted in favor of the contract with 57% passing the pact. The vote was passed by a 23,389 to 17,501 margin as per the statement by the union.

A large number of workers had voted against this deal as it still has a lot of different pay-scales for the workers who are doing similar jobs.

The workers who are temporary can get their jobs to be permanent after a period of two or three years as per their starting date however they are going to start a the very bottom of this pay scale so the people who are doing the same work might end up at different rates of payment which is the reason behind a major portion of the workers had voted down the pact.
