Chrysler Contract Hangs in Balance

Vote tallies continue to trickle in as the fate of the tentative contract agreement between the UAW and Chrysler hangs in the balance.
A union local at two engine plants in Detroit has approved the deal. Officials are awaiting vote counts from four factories in Kokomo, Indiana.
Early voting shows six local unions representing more than 11,000 workers have turned down the deal. Five locals representing about 8,200 workers have supported it.
Counts by the international union show the deal passing with just over 50 percent of the vote.
It's nearly impossible to keep a running total. Local unions give out only percentages and not the number of people who voted.

    At least the next strike will hit other states and not Michigan.
