Some autoworkers at the General Motors Fabrication Plant will are voting again on a previously rejected proposed tentative agreement covering local contract issues.

A majority of the members of UAW Local 1714 voted in favor of the proposed pact last month.

However, local union President Robert Morales tells 21 News that his membership is divided into two groups; Skilled Trades workers and Production workers.

While a majority of the Skilled Trades workers voted in favor of the agreement, most of the workers in the Production Division voted to reject the pact.

At the time, union leaders said another vote would not be taken.

However, the union went back to local GM management to discuss four issues that the production workers identified as reasons they rejected the agreement.

Morales says at the urging of the UAW International, the union Shop Committee chose to allow only the Production Division to re-vote on an amended tentative agreement.

Production workers are now voting during a 24 hour period that runs through 5 a.m. Friday.

The issues addressed in local UAW contracts are separate from those covered by the national agreement ratified by UAW locals around the nation last year.

Local 1714 represents 1,400 workers according to the union's website.
