DETROIT (Reuters) - The United Auto Workers said on Thursday it will attempt to negotiate its next deal with General Motors Co, after Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV ratified a new pact.

The contract reached with Fiat Chrysler, which the UAW announced earlier Thursday had been ratified, will be used as a basic pattern for the deals the union will attempt to reach first with GM and later with Ford Motor Co.
