Contract Approved At Freight Lliner Plant In Rowan County

A new contract for workers at Freight liner's largest plant. Workers at the Rowan County plant have approved a contract by an 89 percent vote.

That's according to United Auto Workers Local 3520. Workers at the plant in Cleveland rejected a contract last month. Details of the new deal were not available.

U-A-W workers at Freight liner plants in Mount Holly and Gastonia have approved contracts by margins of 80 percent and 95 percent, respectively.

Freight liner is a unit of DaimlerChrysler A-G. The company has said it's cutting up to four-thousand jobs nationwide, including about 19-hundred in North Carolina.

The company said the cuts were in response to slow sales of trucks equipped with new and expensive technology aimed at curbing diesel exhaust emissions.
