06:17 EDTGMFiat Chrysler labor deal faces resistance, NY Times reports
Fiat Chrysler's (FCAU) tentative deal with the United Auto Workers union has seen resistance in early voting, with several plants rejecting the deal outright, the New York Times says. Voting at some of the largest plants will start Tuesday, and that fate of the proposed four-year deal will be determined by the middle of the week, the report says.
