Lansing-area General Motors Co. workers have split on a proposed contract with the Detroit automaker, with one union local turning down the pact and two others approving it.

Local unions wrapped up voting on the contract last week and were among the first to report results, posting final tallies Monday. Members of United Auto Workers Local 652 and UAW Local 1753 voted in favor of the contract, while UAW Local 602 rejected it.

Nationwide results will be released after locals at all GM sites finish voting by Wednesday morning, UAW spokeswoman Michele Martin said.|newswell|text|FRONTPAGE|p
