Fiat Chrysler workers could vote on new contract Friday if national council blesses it

Voting on a new contract for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles workers could start as soon as Friday.

The time frame is not guaranteed but would be set if the UAW-FCA National Council formally adopts the proposal — reached Saturday between the auto company and the union following months of talks — as a tentative agreement, sending it to the membership for a vote.

The council, which is composed of local union leaders, is to meet Wednesday at the Renaissance Center in Detroit.
