KC GM Workers Approve Deal, Head back to Work

GM workers at Kansas City's Fairfax assembly plant will head back to work Thursday.

Union leaders say they approved a deal Wednesday to end a three-week old strike by 2500 UAW members. They say 88-percent of skilled workers and 85-percent of production workers voted in favor of the agreement.

The deal addresses concerns the union had about job security, seniority and assigning jobs in the plant.

The strike has limited GM's supply of Malibu and Saturn Auras at dealerships around the country.
