According to information distributed by the UAW to membership, new workers will be hired at $14.25 per hour and rise to $20.25 per hour within four years. Currently, workers hire in at $13 an hour and top out at $17.50.
Skilled trades workers, making $32 an hour and less today, will see their rate rise to $34.50 this year and $36 in 2022.
There's also language in the contract preventing some forced overtime. The UAW also negotiated for a health and safety representative.
Workers went on strike shortly after midnight June 21. UAW and Faurecia negotiators hammered out a deal at Liberty School and workers were back on the job later that morning.
