BEDFORD, IN — After a 15-day strike marred by violence, workers at a Visteon Corp. auto parts plant in Bedford, Ind., approved a contract Sunday that union leaders say includes wage concessions and a guaranteed limit on job cuts.

Union members at the Bedford plant voted 528-410 to accept the four-year contract, announced Saturday, said Tom Jones, vice president of International Union of Electrical Workers-Communications Workers of America Local 907. Employees were to report for work on Tuesday.

About 1,000 union members had been on strike since May 30, when they rejected the previous contract proposal.

State Police were sent to the plant amid high tensions, including a confrontation in which two cars were overturned and another was set on fire after replacement workers were bused to the plant.

Visteon did not divulge terms of the proposal, but Jones said it would require the Bedford plant to maintain an employment level of 700. The company announced in April it planned to move between 500 and 600 jobs out of the Bedford plant, citing declining profits.
