A local union outside Detroit has rejected a contract agreement between Ford Motor Co. and the United Auto Workers.

Ford and the UAW reached the tentative agreement on a new four-year contract last week, but workers must vote on it before it can take effect.

UAW Local 900, which represents workers at three plants outside Detroit, says 51.1 percent of its workers voted to reject the agreement. A total of 2,582 workers voted.
