Canadian autoworkers voted to approve a newly negotiated contract with Ford Sunday, September 23rd. The union says 82 percent of it's Ford members approved the deal. There was no report of how many of the 4,500 workers at Ford cast ballots. The union leadership also reached agreement with GM last week and workers are expected to vote to approve that contract Wednesday or Thursday, September 26th or 27th. Talks continue with Chrysler and the union is looking to match deals reached at both Ford and GM. The new Ford contract cut wages for new hires and freezes pay for current workers. It also give workers a lump sum payment for ratifying the new contract.
