Auto Workers settle at Jeep plant.

Auto Workers settle at Jeep plant

The Auto Workers negotiated a 3-year contract for American Motors employees at Toledo, OH, who produce Jeep vehicles. Terms for the 5,800 workers were similar to the union's 1984 settlements with General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. (See Monthly Labor Review, December 1984, pp. 46-49.)

Still to be negotiated is a contract for American Motors' Kenosha, WI, plant, which produces automobiles. First indications are that the talks will be difficult, as a top company official said the union had been informed that "costs at that plant are too high.' The current Kenosha contract expires on September 15, 1985.
