GM vote results and skilled trades concerns
The UAW's statement on the vote this past week:

Detroit, Mich.  — Today the UAW concluded a week-long ratification process concerning a tentative agreement negotiated between the UAW and General Motors LLC.  A majority of UAW members at General Motors have voted in favor of the tentative agreement, as follows:

Total National Agreement bargaining unit results

Production            58.3% Yes     41.7% No
Skilled Trades       40.5% Yes     59.5% No

Overall 55.43% voted for the agreement; 44.57% voted against the agreement.

The UAW has not deemed the tentative agreement ratified. Rather, in accordance with the UAW’s Constitution and applicable administrative guidance, the UAW will hold meetings with its UAW-GM Skilled Trades membership at each worksite over the next several days in order to determine what reason(s) they had for rejection of the tentative agreement. Once that inquiry has concluded, the UAW’s International Executive Board shall meet to determine what appropriate steps shall be taken. The results of this process cannot change aspects of the agreement which are common to all members

Salaried Master Agreement

100% voted for the agreement; 0% voted against the agreement

The Salaried National Agreement has been ratified.
