A top United Auto Workers official tells workers that negotiations with General Motors are going slow, with only eight days left before the national contract expires.
UAW Vice President Terry Dittes says the talks have been slowed by the company's response to the union's proposal. He tells local unions in a letter Thursday that UAW remains committed to providing workers with a fair share of the profits earned by the company.
The four-year agreement between UAW and all three Detroit auto manufacturers expires at 11:59 p.m. September 14 Last week, union leaders gave the authority a call for a strike.
GM states that the goal is to reach an agreement that builds a strong future for the company and its employees.
