Mark Hawkins, chairman of United Auto Workers union Local 598 at GM's Flint Truck Assembly plant, said the deal with GM covers work rules and other local issues not detailed in the union's 2007 national contract with the company.
Details were not released. A union official could not immediately be reached for comment, but Hawkins told local television stations that the deal would keep open the plant that employs about 520 salaried and hourly workers. "It will have a trickle-down affect to the vendors, suppliers and the whole community," he told WNEM-TV. Workers must vote to ratify the contract.
