The tentative four-year labor contract between the UAW and Chrysler LLC is closer to being ratified after local UAW officials approved the deal in a vocal vote today. The Detroit News reports that there were a few local leaders who let their "No" votes be heard, but those who approved the contract ultimately carried it through. Now local UAW leaders can bring the contract to their rank and file, some 45,000 hourly workers, who ultimately have the final say over whether or not it's accepted.
