(WXYZ) — United Auto Workers members who work for Fiat Chrysler will now consider a tentative contract with the automaker after the union's national council voted to send it to the membership.

The UAW has also released a contract summary to the membership.

“This pattern agreement lifts all current full-time employees to top pay in four years; provides parity on health care for all in-progression employees; provides a pathway to full-time status and eventually top pay for all temporary employees; prescription drug coverage for temporary employees; a $9,000 signing bonus for traditional members and a $3,500 signing bonus for temporary members; enhanced the profit sharing formula by 12.5% and created over 7,900 jobs from over $9 billion in investment – including $4.5 billion in newly announced projects,” said Cindy Estrada, UAW Vice President and Director of the UAW-FCA Department, in a news release.

The union will now hold informational sessions at the locals, with a ratification vote being held beginning Friday, December 6.
