DETROIT -- UAW officials today distributed details of their tentative agreement with General Motors to local union presidents.

During a press conference at UAW headquarters here after those meetings, UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said the agreement has “unprecedented product guarantees” and a moratorium on outsourcing.

Here are official details on the tentative agreement between the UAW and GM:

GM agrees to new-vehicle programs at 16 U.S. plants.

GM would initially fund the UAW’s health care trust fund with $29.9 billion with an additional $5.4 billion in future years.

GM would provide the trust an additional backstop of as much as $1.6 billion over the next 20 years.

Workers get a $3,000 signing bonus to approve the contract.

Instead of pay raises, UAW rank and file get bonuses equal to 3 percent, 4 percent and 3 percent of their annual pay during the second, third and fourth years of the contract.

New hires in noncore, nonproduction jobs would get paid between $14 and $16.23 an hour.

New hires get a 401(k) plan instead of the traditional UAW pension plan.

GM agreed to bring in-house 3,000 jobs that now are outsourced to contractors.

GM agreed to hire 3,000 temporary workers as full-time hourly employees.


It's all in the timing...
