Union Fights for Its Members

New Deal for GM Workers

According to Detroit News, The United Auto Workers (UAW) has made a big deal for General Motors (GM) workers. The union was able to get more workers to be eligible for a special retirement program. Originally, only 748 workers were eligible for a $50,000 bonus. But now all 1,412 production workers who signed up will get the bonus.

The UAW fought hard to make this deal happen. The union’s leader Mike Booth said it was because of the members’ feedback and pressure. The program is part of the UAW-GM contract and will give one-time payments to eligible workers who retire. The payments will be made on June 1st, July 1st or August 1st.
