UAW-represented employees at Dana Holding have ratified a new, three-year Global Framework Agreement.

The contract was approved by a majority of UAW members at Dana in voting from 18 March to yesterday.

The labour agreement covers around 2,500 workers at 13 Dana facilities in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

In addition to the framework agreement, each local is covered by a local deal that addresses plant-specific issues such as vacation, transfers, job postings and attendance.

It is the first agreement between the UAW and Dana since the automotive parts supplier emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 2008
