BIEBER, YOKICH ANNOUNCE RATIFICATION OF NEW THREE-YEAR UAW-GM CONTRACT

 DETROIT, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- UAW President Owen Bieber and Vice President Stephen P. Yokich, director of the union's General Motors Department, announced today that UAW-represented workers at GM voted by a 71.5-percent margin to ratify a new three-year contract with the General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM). The margin for production workers was 69.4 percent. The Skilled Trades voted 77.1 percent in favor of the agreement.
 "Matching the pattern agreement for our members at GM was a long and complex process," Bieber and Yokich said. "However, the National Bargaining Committee and the UAW staff, with the full backing of the UAW-GM membership, clearly proved equal to the challenge of winning a pattern contract that addresses the concerns of our members at GM."
 "We now look forward to working with the company to apply this agreement in a constructive and mutually beneficial manner," Bieber and Yokich concluded.
