Detroit, Mich. – The UAW-FORD bargaining team has reached an agreement with Ford Motor Company, securing job security, economic gains and other contractual benefis for members. The bargaining team unanimously voted to send the proposed tentative agreement to local union leaders who make up the union’s UAW National Ford Council (NFC).
“We appreciate the solidarity from our members while we worked to secure the details of this proposed tentative agreement,” said UAW President Dennis Williams. “We negotiated for a proposal that will solidify job security and create substantial economic gains for our hard-working members and their families.”Once the NFC votes to approve the proposed tentative agreement, it will be immediately presented to the UAW-FORD membership.
Details will not be released until the NFC finalizes and votes to approve.“This agreement is significant for our members in that it creates a clear path for economic advancement for active members and rewards veteran employees for their sacrifices in recent years,” said UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles. “It is one of the richest agreements in the history of UAW-Ford.”
