United Auto Workers (UAW) union members seem poised to ratify contracts at Ford and Stellantis, according to UAW vote trackers and media reports.
Some media outlets have already reported the contracts as having attained the votes necessary for ratification by both automakers. However, spokespeople for both Ford and Stellantis have declined to comment until the union makes an official announcement.
A UAW spokesman did not return a request for comment by time of publication.
It has been widely reported that workers from General Motors have ratified their labor contract, though that vote was seemingly closer than with the other two members of the Detroit-area “Big Three.”
If ratified, this would bring an official end to the UAW “stand-up” strike that began on Sept.15 and targeted specific plants at all of the Big Three. The final tentative labor agreement was reached with GM on Oct. 30. The new contracts are four-and-a-half-year agreements that would expire on April 30, 2028.
