The United Auto Workers stated that the members have ratified the first work agreement with Chrysler LLC. `We are pleased that our UAW employees recognize that the new agreement meets the needs of the company and its employees by providing a framework to improve our long-term manufacturing competitiveness' said Chrysler`s vice chairman and president - Tom LaSorda.
The UAW is trying to finish the negotiations with Ford, expected to conclude next week.
`Our members had to face some tough choices, and we had a solid, democratic debate about this contract` said Ron Gettelfinger – the UAW President. `Now we`re going to come together as a union-and now it`s on the company to move ahead, increase their market share and continue to build great cars and trucks here in the U.S.`.
`There`s no question this was a difficult set of negotiations during difficult times for the U.S. auto industry` said the UAW Vice President General Holifield, the chief of the union`s Chrysler Department. `But with the support of our membership and local leadership, we have an agreement that secures jobs and wages and protects healthcare and pension benefits` said Holifield.
