DETROIT (AP) — Workers at Ford's largest local union have approved a new labor contract with the company, making it more likely it will be ratified in the next few days.

The United Auto Workers union says 62 percent of the 5,282 workers voting at Local 600 in Dearborn, Mich., favored the agreement. Dearborn, which is just outside Detroit, is also the home of Ford's headquarters.

Ford Motor Co. and the UAW reached a tentative agreement on the contract earlier this month, but it must be ratified by workers. Ford has 41,000 UAW workers.

UAW President Bob King has expressed confidence the agreement would pass, despite some dissent at other local unions.

The UAW says that 57 percent of those voting so far have approved the agreement.
