UAW, Ford contract deadline arrives Tuesday

October 18, 2011

Despite being rejected by workers at two Chicago-area plants, the contract appears to have enough votes to pass.

Union workers at Ford's assembly plant on Chicago's South Side and the stamping plant in suburban Chicago Heights rejected the deal last week. However, in recent days, workers at other plants around the country have been voting in favor of it heavily.

Union officials now confirm more than 60 percent of Ford auto workers have voted to approve the contract.
