Posted at 6:37 AM, Nov 15, 2019

The UAW is on track to ratify its contract with Ford.

Union locals have until later Friday evening to turn in their vote totals.

So far, only two plants have voted down the contract – those being the Chicago Assembly Plant and Lima Engine Plant in Ohio.

The proposed four-year contract includes a $9,000 dollar signing bonus.

It also includes pay raises, and temporary workers with three or more years experience will achieve full-time status.
