By Doug Cunningham
The UAW’s Ford National Council is unanimously endorsing the tentative contract with Ford. The council consists of local union leader delegates from more than 55 Ford facilities across the nation. The UAW says the unanimous recommendation to approve came after a meeting Monday that included a detailed question and answer session. UAW President Ron Gettelfinger says he’s very pleased with the strong support of local UAW leaders for the new contract at Ford. UAW Ford workers will finish voting on whether or not to approve the contract November 12th.
