UAW and General Motors Finalize Deal to End 40-Day Strike

HeadlineOct 28, 2019

After a 40-day strike, a new four-year deal between the United Auto Workers and General Motors was approved Friday. The contract was supported by 57% of the labor union. It includes an $11,000 bonus per member, annual raises and more affordable healthcare. General Motors still plans to close three factories in the United States. About 48,000 UAW workers walked off the job over one month ago, making it the longest national strike at GM by United Auto Workers in nearly 50 years.
