Dana Corp. said it has reached an agreement with the United Auto Workers (UAW) that will allow the union to organize its factories.
The agreement is expected to benefit both sides by contributing to business growth, improved productivity, enhanced operational cost-efficiency, and continued workforce opportunities and options.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed by agreement of the parties.
The partnership agreement establishes collective bargaining and representation principles for Dana's U.S. automotive assembly and manufacturing facilities serving DaimlerChrysler AG, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors Corp.
Workers at nine Dana auto parts plants are currently UAW members. Initial terms of the new partnership agreement will cover additional Dana plants throughout the U.S. At those plants, the company will recognize union representation rights based on majority status.
