KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Under terms of a new collective bargaining agreement, 43 workers at the General Motors Fairfax Assembly and Stamping Plant will transition from temporary status to full-time employment.

The company announced news about the 43 workers at its Kansas City, Kansas, production facility on Wednesday.

Nationwide, GM will transition 1,350 temporary workers to full-time status in the wake of a more than month-long strike by the United Auto Workers last fall.

The full-time transitions will take place during the first quarter of 2020.

The impact on local workers was significant during the 40-day strike, but now the pay off will be better salaries, dental and vision insurance coverage, access to improved medical plan cost-sharing, life insurance, profit-sharing and company retirement-plan contributions.
