Detroit, Michigan – American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings (AAM) has announced that tentative agreements reached with the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) have been ratified. The contract covers approximately 3,650 AAM workers at five facilities in Michigan and New York; the strike, which began February 26, has affected more than 30 General Motors assembly facilities, including some in Ontario.
“AAM is pleased to announce the ratification of a new collective bargaining agreement with the International UAW,” said Richard Dauch, AAM Chairman and CEO. “This new contract provides AAM and its UAW-represented workforce the opportunity to transition through a most difficult period of structural change in the domestic automotive industry. We look forward to the prompt resumption of normal manufacturing operations at our original U.S. locations.”
AAM said it expects to have its plant running production during the week of May 26.
