UAW Ratifies Deere Pact: United Auto Workers union members overwhelmingly ratified a new Deere & Co contract that gives them three lump-sum pay increases and allows the company to bring in new hires at a lower rate than current employees, the union announced Sunday night. About 10,500 workers at Deere facilities in six states are covered by the new contract that expires Oct. 1, 1997.
