Not all UAW Chrysler workers are behind the latest contract agreement.
United Auto Workers Local 1435 which represents workers at the Toledo Machining Plant in Perrysburg have rejected the tentative contract.
70% of the plant's 800 hourly workers rejected the new pact during voting Wednesday.
Back in August, Chrysler announced plans to invest $72 million into the plant to make new torque converters and steering columns.
Workers at Chrysler's Dundee plant will vote Sunday, and workers at the Toledo North Assembly Complex will vote Monday.
