Fiat Chrysler workers to vote on new 4-year contract

Business

BELVIDERE, Ill. (WTVO) — Auto workers at Fiat Chrysler are preparing to vote on a new contract Friday.

The union says 47,000 workers will vote on the four-year deal.

On Wednesday, union leaders were in Detroit, going over the offer. If the contract passes, it will mean a $9,000 per worker bonus.

Fiat Chrysler also promises to invest $4.5 billion in U.S. factories.

The company is the last of the Detroit-based car makers to settle with the UAW.

Both General Motors and Ford came to an agreement with the union last month.
