UAW-Chrysler
(2007-06-18)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - United Auto Workers President Ron Gettelfinger
says the union must find a way to give Chrysler health care
concessions.
The U-A-W gave health care concessions to Ford and G-M in 2005
that saved the companies billions of dollars. The union refused to
grant the same deal to Chrysler because of its stronger financial
condition at the time.
Gettelfinger said in an interview on W-J-R A-M's Paul W- Smith
show this morning that the U-A-W has been talking to Chrysler
frequently. He says the two sides need to fix the problem there now
that Chrysler is in a "downward mode."
The U-S based carmakers combined have more than 100 (b) billion
dollars in long-term retiree health care costs that analysts say
must be reduced.
