GM puts $1.5B for Wentzville plant on table during strike negotiations with UAW

General Motors has reached a tentative deal with United Auto Workers who have been on strike nationwide since September which includes a $1.5 billion investment into the plant in Wentzville.

United Auto Workers (UAW) employees at the Wentzville plant are set to vote on the tentative agreement by Thursday evening.

The Wentzville plant, west of St. Louis, was included in a massive workforce development bill pushed through the General Assembly in the spring. The bill, signed into law by Republican Gov. Mike Parson, was designed to lure a $1 billion expansion of the plant.

UAW workers went on strike against General Motors (GM) in mid-September, demanding better wages and job protection. The parties reached a tentative agreement last week, which is still being decided.
