General Motors Corp. reportedly agrees to a 2-year deal with the trade union at its assembly complex in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. The pact includes 5.5% wage increase for hourly workers, plus a 1.25% increase in benefits. Ramos Arizpe, which opened in 1980, makes the Pontiac Aztek, Buick Rendezvous and other vehicles as well as transmissions and engines. Reports say a similar contract likely will soon be signed at GM's truck plant in Silao.
