UAW workers voting on contract with GM

TOLEDO -- Local UAW workers are voting on the tentative contract deal between the union and General Motors.

The deal would allow UAW workers to take control of their own healthcare benefits. GM would also commit to keeping jobs in the U.S. and avoid outsourcing.

Union leaders have already given the contract a thumbs up and say they're confident the deal will pass, though some aren't happy about some of the changes in it.

Voting ends tonight at 6.
