DETROIT – UAW Mack Truck members ratified a four-year collective bargaining agreement by over 79% on Sunday.

“Through the new four-year agreement, the UAW looks to further expand its long-term relationship with Mack Trucks. The members at Mack were able to hold the line on health care and add job security provisions and substantial raises during a difficult economic time in the industry,” said UAW Secretary-Treasurer and director of the UAW Heavy Truck Department, Ray Curry.

UAW President Gary Jones has asked for a leave of absence, following a vote of the Executive Board. It will be effective Sunday, Nov. 3rd.  Vice President Rory Gamble, who recently negotiated the Ford agreement, will serve as acting president and assume full responsibility for the president’s office.

“The UAW is fighting tooth and nail to ensure our members have a brighter future. I do not want anything to distract from the mission. I want to do what’s best for the members of this great union,” Jones said.
