United Auto Workers
(2007-06-22)
(wgvu) - The United Auto Workers union doesn't like the
rhetoric it's hearing from the Detroit automakers ahead of contract
talks.
Two top union officials say claims that the autos must cut
wage-and-benefit costs by 30 dollars per hour to compete with Asian
rivals are merely pre-negotiation posturing.
The men were responding to a question about how to make sure
General Motors, Ford and Chrysler survive without giving major
concessions.
No mention was made during the hourlong chat of a potential
agreement with G-M and Delphi.
Delphi says it needs a lower wage scale and other changes to
compete against suppliers with cheaper labor costs.
