BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

The members of UAW Local 699 have approved a new contract with Nexteer Automotive, according to a post on the chapter's Facebook page.

The agreement was approved with 61.4% of members voting yes, and 38.6% of members voting no.

It's the second vote this month on a new contract with the plant.

Rank-and-file members overwhelmingly voted down another a tentative agreement earlier this month, resulting in a nearly day-long strike that ended with the announcement of this agreement.

The new contract includes wage increases among other benefits.
