Delphi, Visteon to Send More Work
to UAW-Represented Plants

Monday, May 3, 2004
 
As part of the new seven-year supplemental agreements announced last week between auto-parts producers Delphi Corp. and Visteon Corp. with the United Auto Workers (UAW), both firms pledged to send more work to UAW-represented plants. They also agreed to not close any of their plants until 2011, without the permission of the UAW According to an AP report on the new agreements, the UAW agreed to a new second-tier wage for new hires at the two firms. In Delphi’s case, new hires will be paid $14/hr. and pay scales, in three wage groupings, will rise to as much as $18.50/hr. over the life of the agreement. This compared to an average wage of $24/hr. for current UAW workers at Delphi and Visteon. In addition to agreeing to allocate more work to UAW-represented facilities, Delphi and Visteon also agreed to make capital investments in their UAW-represented plants to improve product quality and competitiveness.
