JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Unionized workers at the General Motors plant in Janesville have ratified a national contract.

Sixty-two percent of UAW members in Janesville voted in favor of the contract. The agreement was reach last week, ending a nationwide strike against the automaker.

Workers in Janesville are among the first to ratify the four-year agreement. Nearly 70 UAW locals representing 73,000 members will vote on the contract, which includes a two-tier wage system for new employees.
