In 2015, all growing employees were transferred to the traditional health plan, where they remain in the proposed contract for 2019. They do not have to consider in the preliminary agreement more than 48,000 members this week. But they will receive increases and bonuses that exceed current inflation, the removal of the $12,000 cap on profit distributions and a record $11,000 bonus — a much more lucrative contract than their agreement four years ago. If the provisional agreement does not get a majority of votes, it is again up to the rope for GM negotiators and the GM UAW negotiating committee to reach agreement on the objections raised. UAW will negotiate a new interim agreement with Ford, using the GM contract as a model. The agreement also includes ratification bonuses of $11,000 (compared to $8,000 in 2015) for permanent employees. Temporary employees would receive a $US 4,500 ratification bonus, up from 2,000 $US in 2015. The company would pay the bonuses during the second pay period after the agreement was ratified. A cap of $12,000 for recipient companies is also being removed and permanent employees continue to receive US$1,000 for every $1 billion in upstream tax revenue generated by GM in North America. Irrespective of this, the UAW Mack Truck Council announced late on Thursday that an interim agreement had been reached and that it was suspending a nearly two-week strike. Mack`s workers must return to their workplaces. Mack Trucks has five locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida.

General Motors and United Auto Workers have reached an interim agreement to end the strike that began a month ago, as announced by the union on Wednesday. The NATIONAL council of the UAW GM will vote on the agreement on Thursday. In a statement, GM said it was generating future investment opportunities and job growth in Ohio`s Mahoning Valley. These investments are outside the national agreement: the UAW said late on Wednesday morning that elected national negotiators voted to recommend to the National Council that the proposal “presents great benefits for UAW workers.” Nearly 200 local auto worker executives voted Thursday to send a preliminary agreement with General Motors Co. to members. In the 2019 contract, employees receive a ratification bonus of $11,000. Temporary public servants receive a ratification bonus of $4,500. Under the agreement, full-time workers who worked for three years or more would be permanently hired from January 6, a priority request from the UAW and many members.
Part-time workers who have worked for at least two uninterrupted years become regular employees as of January 1, 2020. Temporary workers who work for at least one year are also entitled to paid and unpaid leisure time. In the 2015 contract, the union was granted 64 four-year leave. In 2019, there were 66 public holidays in four years. GM confirmed that an agreement had been proposed and did not provide further details. GM`s stock rose 13.m a day after falling 10% during the strike.
