UAW, DaimlerChrysler Reach Deal
Sep. 16, 1999
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) _ The United Auto Workers and DaimlerChrysler AG reached a tentative agreement today on a new national contract for 75,000 workers.
Terms of the new three-year agreement were not immediately announced.
A ratification vote has not been scheduled yet, UAW spokesman Frank Joyce said.
The deal came after a marathon round of negotiations between the UAW and the company formed by the merger of Chrysler Corp. and Germany's Daimler-Benz AG. The UAW's negotiating team was headed by President Stephen P. Yokich after the death of vice president Jack Laskowski in August.
