UAW Ratifies Chrysler Deal

DETROIT (AP) - Members of the United Auto Workers overwhelmingly ratified a settlement deal with Chrysler on Wednesday night.

The UAW says 82 percent of production workers and 80 percent of
skilled-trades workers voted for the agreement in balloting that
took place at UAW Chrysler locations throughout the U.S. Ninety
percent of office and clerical workers and 94 percent of
UAW-represented engineering workers voted in favor.

The agreement, which will take effect May 4, meets Treasury
requirements for continued loans to Chrysler Corp., and includes
commitments from Fiat to manufacture a new small car in one of
Chrysler's U.S. facilities and to share key technology with
Chrysler.
