UAW rejects new GM offer as strike forces 6,000 Mexico layoffs

UAW rejects new GM offer as strike forces 6,000 Mexico layoffsThe union said it made a counterproposal and warned “there are still many important issues that remain unresolved.” Also on Tuesday, GM said the strike by U.S. workers forced it to halt production at its pickup and transmission plants in Silao, Mexico, resulting in temporary layoffs of 6,000 workers. About 48,000 UAW members went on strike on Sept. 16 seeking higher pay, greater job security, a bigger share of the leading U.S. automaker’s profit and protection of healthcare benefits. The statements on “comprehensive proposals” indicate the talks have shifted into a higher gear as the dispute is taking a toll on both the automaker and striking UAW workers, whose $ 250 a week from the union strike fund is a fraction of their normal pay.
