GM - UAW Bargaining Update - October 6th

UAW Vice President  Terry Dittes update on status of Negotiations

National Strike - Day 19 Dear Union Brothers and Sisters: Since the last update, we have made good progress regarding the issues of health care and a path for temporary employees becoming seniority members. We still have several of your proposals outstanding and unsettled like wages, job security, skilled trades and pension.
Greetings: We continue to follow the strategy of pattern bargaining by targeting a lead company to negotiate with. As you know the UAW continues to strike General Motors. They are completing their third week and our brothers and sisters at the UAW-GM Locals need our support now more than ever. I ask all of you to donate your time and visit the picket lines during your off-work hours. I know many of you have, but make sure to let them know that the membership of UAW-FCA thanks them for the sacrifice they are making for all of us. They will set the pattern for us to follow.
Greetings Union Brothers and Sisters: We have made significant progress in this set of negotiations since I last updated you on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. At this time, we now have 18 out of 20 subcommittees that have reached tentative agreements or have negotiated to the point that only patterned or large economic items remain open for discussion.

RE: National Strike - Day 16

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters:

Last night, Monday, September 30, 2019, GM passed a comprehensive proposal at 9:40 pm across the bargaining table.

This proposal that the Company provided to us on day 15 of the strike did not satisfy your contract demands or needs. There were many areas that came up short like health care, wages, temporary employees, skilled trades and job security to name a few.  Additionally, concessionary proposals still remain in the company's proposals as of late last night.
