A senior United Auto Workers employee tells workers that negotiations with General Motors are slow, with only eight days left before the national contract expires.
UAW Vice President Terry Dietes says the talks have been delayed by the company's responses to union proposals. He told local union officials in a letter Thursday that the UAW remains committed to getting workers a fair share of the profits made by the company.
Four-year deals between the UAW and three Detroit carmakers expire at 11:59 a.m. On September 14, last week, union members gave their leaders the power to strike.
GM says its goal is to reach an agreement that will build a strong future for the company and its employees.
