American Axle workers vote to end strike

May 23, 2008


— Workers at American Axle and Manufacturing Holdings Inc. expect to return to their jobs early next week after overwhelmingly approving a new contract that contains steep pay cuts and other concessions.

United Auto Workers members at five American Axle sites in Michigan and New York voted 78 percent in favor of the four-year deal, while 22 percent voted against, the union said in a statement late Thursday. The UAW does not usually release vote totals.

The vote, finalized Thursday, ends a bitter strike that lasted nearly three months.
