The latest on UAW contract negotiations
Union leaders at General Motors' factories across the U.S. are endorsing a tentative contract with the automaker.
In an unprecedented press conference yesterday, UAW President Bob King discussed details of the 4-year-contract. The rank-and-file will vote in the coming days. General Motors is the first automaker to reach a deal with the UAW. And, these negotiations are the first since the federal government stepped in to help GM and Chrysler through bankruptcy in 2009.
We caught up with Tracy Samilton, Michigan Radio's auto reporter, to talk about the tentative contract and what it means for GM, the UAW, and the state's economy.
