United Auto Workers members overwhelmingly approved a concessions deal with struggling US automaker Chrysler LLC that includes a pledge for Fiat SpA 's small car production at one of their plants, the union said.

AFP -  Chrysler workers voted Wednesday to approve a new contract with Chrysler LLC and Italian automaker Fiat, helping to clear the way for a US government-backed merger, the United Auto Workers said.

"This has been a challenging time filled with anxiety and uncertainty for our membership," said UAW President Ron Gettelfinger.

"Our members have responded by accepting an agreement that is painful for our active and retired workers, but which helps preserve US manufacturing jobs and gives Chrysler a chance to survive."
