Kansas City Aura Plant Approves GM Contract

The UAW strike that brought Saturn's Aura midsize sedan to a screeching halt earlier this month is finally over. "We're certainly happy to be able to resume production of the Malibu and Aura," GM spokesman Dan Flores told the Detroit News in an article earlier today.

General Motors will resume full production of its popular Saturn Aura and Chevrolet Malibu sedans today after workers in Kansas City, Kansas, voted to return to the line after a 17-day strike that threatened one of the automaker's most critical vehicles. Members of United Auto Workers Local 31, representing GM's Fairfax Assembly plant, on Wednesday ratified a new plant-level labor deal with the automaker, GM spokesman Dan Flores said. The strike's conclusion ends months of labor unrest for GM, which cut into supplies of the company's top selling vehicles at a time when GM could least afford to lose sales.
