Canadian auto workers approve GM deal

Members of the Canadian Auto Workers union have voted 87 percent in favor of a new cost-cutting contract with General Motors.
The deal reached between the union and the struggling automaker last weekend includes a wage freeze to September 2012, the elimination of an annual bonus and a reduction in paid time off, among other concessions.
The deal is contingent on GM winning federal and provincial support
GM has also promised workers that Detroit-based parent General Motors Corp. will keep 20 percent of its total North American manufacturing volume in Canada.
Many workers who voted on the deal said Wednesday they supported the agreement only reluctantly.
