AUTO TALKS
(2007-11-05)
(wgvu) -
ABOUT 54,000 UNITED AUTO WORKERS UNION
MEMBERS AT FORD ARE GETTING SET TO VOTE ON WHETHER TO ACCEPT A
TENTATIVE CONTRACT WITH THE DEARBORN-BASED AUTOMAKER.
FORD AND UAW NEGOTIATORS REACHED A TENTATIVE DEAL OVER THE
WEEKEND AND HAVEN'T YET RELEASED DETAILS.
UNLIKE GENERAL MOTORS AND CHRYSLER, FORD'S TENTATIVE AGREEMENT
WAS REACHED WITHOUT A STRIKE.
FORD SAYS THE DEAL, IF RATIFIED, WILL MAKE IT MORE COMPETITIVE.
THE AUTOMAKER'S U.S. MARKET SHARE HAS SHRUNK FROM 26 PERCENT IN
THE EARLY 1990S TO ABOUT 15 PERCENT NOW.
FORD LOST 12 BILLION DOLLARS LAST YEAR.
