UAW, NUMMI reach deal
on plant closing

By BRENT SNAVELY
FREE PRESS BUSINESS WRITER

The UAW and NUMMI have reached a tentative
agreement on the closing of
Toyota’s and
General Motors’ former joint venture in Fremont, C
alif.

The agreement covers approximately 4,500 UAW
members represented by UAW Local 2244 at
New
United Motor Manufacturing
Inc., or NUMMI.

Toyota said earlier this month it would offer
$250 million to pay bonuses to hourly and
salaried workers at the plant, which makes the
Toyota Corolla sedan and Toyota Tacoma
pickup.

However, the company and union need to resolve
a $131 million shortfall in the company’s hourly
pension.

The UAW said it won’t discuss details about the
agreement until members at UAW Local 2244
have an opportunity to vote.

Toyota and GM formed NUMMI in 1983 at an
existing GM assembly plant.

GM withdrew from the joint venture last summer
 
after emerging from its taxpayer-financed
bankruptcy. Without producing the
Pontiac
Vibes NUMMI sold to GM, Toyota decided to
close the plant.

Toyota plans to close NUMMI on April 1.
