Union Leaders Consider Options After UAW Reject Fiat Chrysler Contract
Almost two-thirds of United Auto Workers at Fiat Chrysler voted to reject a recent contract agreement.
The UAW says 65 percent voted against the pact.
The vote is a slap in the face to president Dennis Williams who proposed the deal as a way to compensate workers but keep the company competitive.
Williams said he doesn’t see it as a setback, adding it’s part of the contract process.
Now, union leaders from across the country will meet in Michigan to consider the next move.
Options include go on strike, return to bargaining with Fiat Chrysler or shift talks to General Motors or Ford.
