UAW workers set to vote on GM contract offer

TOLEDO (WTVG) - An end may be in sight for striking UAW workers Monday morning. They'll begin voting on a brand new contract offered by General Motors on Friday during a 12-hour window starting at 6 AM.

The window will allow more than 1,600 employees at the GM Powertrain plant in Toledo to either approve or reject the new offer, which includes a 3% raise, $11,000 signing bonuses, eliminated the cap on profit sharing, and offers permanent spots to temporary workers.

Voting on the contract will take place over the next week across the country at GM plants which cover upwards of 46,000 workers. All votes are due by Friday at 4 PM at which time the UAW membership should know if the contract is ratified.
