Fate of Chrysler Labor Agreement Has UAW Leaders Concerned

Ratification of the tentative labor agreement between Chrysler and the UAW is anything but certain. Two large locals representing about 4500 of the union's 45,000 members at the automaker have split over the deal.

A local in upstate New York gave the pact 88- percent approval.

More than half those voting in a Michigan local voted against it.

The contract had already failed in ratification votes in Delaware, Missouri and Ohio.

National UAW leaders seem concerned about the fate of the agreement.

They're asking all appointed union officials to sign a statement backing the deal.
