UAW sets deadline for GM strike

September 24, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The United Auto Workers set a strike deadline of 8 a.m. PDT today if a new contract isn't reached with General Motors Corp., union officials said, threatening a walkout by 73,000 GM factory workers.

The two sides have been in talks for 20 straight days, and GM spokesman Dan Flores said they were continuing late into the night. The deadline raised the stakes in the closely watched labor talks after a weekend of marathon bargaining that had appeared to bring the two sides close on a historic cost-cutting deal for the top U.S. automaker.
