In automotive news, UAW Local 652 is the first of the four Lansing-based United Auto Workers unions to ratify a local contract agreement with General Motors.
UAW Local 602 is one of the remaining unions looking to reach a tentative agreement. The union president says both sides continue to send demands back and forth.
Local 602 is fighting for job security and more products for the Lansing Car Assembly Plant.
The local 652 contract is valid for four years and union members approved the agreement by 90 percent.
