New UAW/GM Contract Assures Production, Healthcare Benefits Longevity for Workers


The most “star­tling rev­e­la­tion” of the new 4-year UAW/GM con­tract comes from a com­pre­hen­sive list of prod­uct com­mit­ments from GM that assures the longevi­ty of some Michi­gan plants that oth­er­wise might have been shut down. The 2-tier wage sys­tem and cre­ation of a retiree health fund trust make unprece­dent­ed inroads between union and automak­ers unequaled in the auto­mo­tive indus­try.
