Workers at six General Motors Corp. factories have voted overwhelmingly to approve contract concessions and local union leaders say the deal appears headed for ratification.

United Auto Workers members at factories in Spring Hill, Tenn.; Orion Township, Mich.; Janesville, Wisc.; Toledo, Ohio; and Pontiac and Lansing, Mich.; all voted in favor of the deal.

Voting is to wrap up by 4 p.m. Friday.

UAW leaders agreed to the revised contract last week that freezes wages, ends bonuses, eliminates noncompetitive work rules and ends the possibility of a strike until the next contract expires in 2015.
