RE: UAW-GM Negotiations – Rejection of Package Proposal

Mr. Sandefur:

On Saturday, October 5, 2019, the Union presented an extensive proposal package at 5:35 pm. This package addressed a minimum of (35) hourly proposals and three (3) salaried proposals. Our extensive proposal package was an effort to move this set of negotiations to the next step to reach a Tentative Agreement.

National Strike – Day 19

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.
