Temporary employees were a focal point of UAW's labor stoppage late last year.The promoted employees work in 14 plants across eight states, including Michigan, New York, and Texas, GM said in a statement.UAW and GM said in October they had come to a tentative agreement with improvements for workers' job security, health benefits, and a path for temporary workers to transition to full-time status."Converting temporary employees to permanent status was a top priority for your national negotiators," the UAW wrote in a summary of its contract with GM.That path to permanent employment, along with "the good wages and benefits that brings" is "significant progress for our temporary brothers and sisters," the UAW said.The agreement with GM in October followed a nearly five-week long strike by almost 50,000 GM employees.Not all temporary employees will be converted, though. The promotions prioritize employees with three or more years of continuous work at GM and will move toward transitioning less senior employees next year, according to the summary of the contract.In turn for the promotions, the UAW agreed to GM's plans to close a plant in Lordstown, Ohio, as well as two smaller plants in Maryland and Michigan, Bloomberg reported.Join the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: Are you superstitious on days like Friday the 13th' These are the origins of 7 common superstitions, like why we knock on wood.
