AMERICAN AXLE Voting
(2008-05-19)
(wgvu) - Striking workers at American Axle and
Manufacturing Holdings Inc. are voting on a new contract with the
Detroit auto supplier that would cut their pay.
United Auto Workers at the Detroit Forge plant and a factory in
Three Rivers are casting ballots Monday. But voting at a large
Detroit union local won't be done until Thursday night.
About 3,600 workers have been on strike since Feb. 26 in the
wage-and-benefit dispute. The strike has crippled production of
General Motors Corp.'s pickup trucks and full-size SUVs.
Most workers at a meeting in Detroit on Sunday said they didn't
like the four-year deal that was reached Friday.
Many say they'll vote for it because it's the best the union
could get. Others say they will vote to stay on strike.
