UAW-GM reactions

Workers are hoping the proposed tentative agreement reached between the United Automobile Workers union and General Motors officials will signal the end to their long strike.

Officials from UAW and GM announced the agreement Wednesday -- 31 days into the national workers' strike. For a month, workers have picketed outside GM plants.


Attack, robbery

A 24-year-old woman was beaten and robbed in midtown at about 2 a.m. Sunday, near her apartment on Prentis Street and Second Avenue. She was coming home from a Halloween party and was opening the back door when two men ambushed her to steal her purse.

She was grabbed from behind by one man who attempted to take her purse. When she fought back, another man came and threw her to the ground. She was punched and kicked before they took her purse. 


Equipment stolen

A band from the west side of Michigan had all its equipment stolen while it was in Clinton Township to play at an event. Officials said Don The Pariah's equipment was stolen from a hotel parking lot after the event.

The metal band played Friday at Pub 1281 in Clinton Township. Afterward, the band loaded up its gear and checked into the Hampton Inn on Gratiot Avenue, police said.


UAW-GM strike isn't over

Rod Meloni: OK, let's not mess around. You want to know what's in the UAW-GM national contract.

Local 4 News has confirmed the tentative agreement starts with $9 billion in new plant investment. Most of that will be UAW-GM work, but a sizable chunk will be for joint ventures, which often do not pay the same scale.
