DETROIT — Autoworkers in Missouri have overwhelmingly rejected a new contract with Ford Motor Co.
Ninety-two percent of workers at the Kansas City Assembly Plant voted against changes to their contract Sunday. The plant employs nearly 4,000 workers.
Ford and the United Auto Workers union agreed to the changes to help lower Ford's labor costs, but UAW members must ratify the changes.
Kansas City UAW local president Jeff Wright says workers were angry about a cap on entry-level wages, changes in work rules and a no-strike provision.
Several other local unions have voted in favor of the changes.
