Members of UAW Local 862 in Louisville, Kentucky voted 53.3 percent in favor of the pact.
The Ford contract offers higher pay and bonuses for workers as compared to the GM contract, and it also promises more new jobs than GM and Chrysler will create combined.
Every employee that has been with Ford for at least a year will receive a check for $6,000 if voters approve the package.
Support was overwhelming, with 65 percent of production and 63 percent of the skilled-trades voting ‘yes’.
It appears they’re more than willing to kick a significant portion of their profit back towards their UAW workforce.
