SPRING HILL, Tenn. (WTVF) — Union members at Spring Hill's General Motors plant have voted against a deal that would get them back on the job.

United Auto Workers Union members narrowly voted down the proposed agreement 51%-49%.

Union members around the country have until Friday to vote on the deal which could end the strike.

UAW said the strike, which began in mid-September, was a last resort. Right now, we're on day 37 of their push for better pay and benefits.

3,300 people work at the General Motors plant in Spring Hill.
