General Motors` interim contract with the United Automobile Workers will increase the automaker`s labour costs and require a considerable amount of effort. As part of the agreement, the Warren Tech Center will receive a new vehicle program, $200 million in investments and the maintenance of approximately 75 jobs. Lansing Delta and Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plants will receive a next generation of mid-sized SUVs worth $1 billion and 5,000 jobs.

However, a ratified treaty is not guaranteed. Similarly, all “in-progress” workers would benefit from an increase within 52 weeks of their last increase.
