Yokich Elected UAW President: As expected, the United Auto Workers chose Stephen P. Yokich to succeed the retiring Owen Bieber. Yokich, 59, a third-generation tool-and-die maker from St. Clair Shores, Mich., has said he intends to try to reverse the membership decline in the 800,000-person union by organizing auto parts suppliers and the American "transplants" of Japanese and German auto makers. Yokich is expected to be sworn in today at the UAW convention in Anaheim.

Stephen P. Yokich, the firebrand former leader of the United Auto Workers who was a leading force in a crippling strike against General Motors Corp. four years ago but who significantly increased benefits for union members, died of a stroke Friday in Detroit. He was 66. Yokich had stepped down two months ago after leading the union for eight years during a time marked by vigorous growth in the country's auto market--though not in the union's membership.

"It's rewarding to know that the UAW Ford membership supports the agreement by such a substantial margin." The union said 85% of the workers who voted approved the deal.

Union leaders at Ford Motor Co. approved a new contract Wednesday that guarantees jobs for about 23,500 workers at Ford parts plants even if Ford turns its parts division into a separate company.

The UAW's Ford executive council unanimously recommended the deal; voting by about 100,000 workers is scheduled to end Oct. 24.

Yokich said the union is getting back in better job security, improved wages and pensions what it gave up to the former Chrysler when the No. 3 U.S. auto maker needed the concessions to survive in the early 1980s.

About 16,500 hourly workers--nearly double the number expected--have taken an early-retirement offer from General Motors, company and union officials said Wednesday.

It also provides further evidence of a new cooperative spirit emerging between GM and the United Auto Workers union.
