Fiat Chrysler confirmed the deal in a statement, but did not give further details on the outlines of the deal. The agreement would provide the same health insurance – including dental and visual coverage – for lower-paid full-time workers who receive high-level seniority workers, as indicated by a union grouping in the agreement. Your plans do not include monthly bonuses. Although several union members have told the Free Press that they expect the workers to finally agree to an agreement, this is not guaranteed. UAW and Fiat Chrysler reached an interim agreement Saturday, nearly two weeks after talks intensified with the automaker and after a series of “distractions,” as Estrada, director of the union`s FCA department, called a series of recent events related to a federal corruption investigation against the UAW, which identified Fiat Chrysler as a co-conspirator. According to a UAW statement, the four-year contract, which covers workers on time in the company, would guarantee investments worth a total of $9 billion with 7,900 jobs. The agreement still needs to be approved by the National Union Council and then adopt a ratification vote by the company`s 47,000 unionized workers. “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. 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. The companies said no plants would close as a result of the merger.
Most PSA unions in Europe shared a positive view of the combination, although the UAW did not comment publicly on a compromise proposal adopted in October. According to Rothenberg, the language to protect workers in the event of a merger remains in the provisional agreement. ACF spokeswoman Jodi Tinson confirmed that an interim agreement had been proposed and said in a prepared statement that further details will be released at a later date. The union said on Thanksgiving weekend that it had reached a tentative agreement with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
