UAW GM NATIONAL COUNCIL VOTES TO SEND TENTATIVE AGREEMENT TO MEMBERS FOR RATIFICATION UAW Members to Stay on Strike until Ratification Local General Motors UAW leaders from around the country today announced that the UAW GM National Council voted to accept the Tentative Agreement with General Motors. UAW workers will remain on strike until ratification.
Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: We just reached a Tentative Agreement with GM a short time ago, today, Wednesday, October 16, 2019. We will go over the details when the Council meets tomorrow morning in Detroit.
“We are standing up for fair pay and benefits for our families” Standing up for fair pay, benefits and job protections for over 3,600 workers in 6 locations across the U.S. “UAW members get up every day and put in long, hard hours of work from designing to building Mack trucks,” said Ray Curry, Secretary-Treasurer of the UAW and Director of the Heavy Truck Department. “UAW members carry on their shoulders the profits of Mack and they are simply asking for dignity, fair pay and job protections.”

The United Auto Workers International Executive Board voted in a motion Saturday morning to authorize increased strike pay to $275 per week for all UAW members on strike and allow members striking at General Motors and Aramark to take on part-time jobs without reducing their strike pay – as long as they perform their picket duty.

The increased payment and authorization for part-time work will be put in effect Sunday, October 13, 2019.

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: A short time ago, today, Friday, October 11, 2019, we counterproposed to the Company's last offer which included all of your outstanding proposals that are all at the main table and unsettled. With this latest comprehensive proposal, if GM accepts and agrees to this group of proposals, we will have a Tentative Agreement.
RE: UAW-GM Negotiations – Day 23 Strike – Update #6 Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: Each of you are aware of the UAW’s core values when we enter a set of negotiations. Issues like wages, healthcare, pension, health and safety, etc. have been part of the UAW fabric for over 80 years!
Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: Our Members at Aramark, which are from UAW Regions 1, 1D and 2B, are on strike for the 24th consecutive day. We continue to meet with the Company and are still not in agreement on key issues such as wages and healthcare.
