Ford workers narrowly approved a new four-year contract, wrapping up five months of negotiations between the United Auto Workers union and Detroit automakers.
The UAW said late Friday that Ford’s contract passed with a 51.4 percent vote. The agreement covers 53,000 U.S. hourly workers at 22 plants, including the one in Claycomo.
UAW workers at Claycomo rejected the agreement, according to UAW Local 249’s Facebook page. About 54 percent of the production workers at the plant voted against the national contract on Nov. 15. Meanwhile, the skilled trades approved the national contract by two votes.
