Auto Plant Workers Vote To End Strike

MONDAY, JAN. 23, 1995

Workers at a crucial General Motors parts complex overwhelmingly ratified a deal Sunday to end a four-day strike which forced shutdowns at other GM plants in the United States and Canada.

The agreement includes a GM commitment to hire more than 600 additional workers by mid1996 and to add new products to the complex’s output, the United Auto Workers said.

“They were trying to take a lot of your jobs to Mexico … and we stopped them,” UAW negotiator Scott Campbell told workers.
