TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The UAW says that workers voted 710 to 16 for the union.

VERBATIM: About 900 employees at the new plant near Warren, Ohio, are the first to decide on union representation at a battery plant. The vote is crucial to the future of the 372,000-member union. As batteries replace gas-powered engines, employees at GM engine and transmission factories will need places to work as their products are gradually phased out over the next decade or so.
