Brodhead says
likely to come
DETROIT (UPI) - Federal aid for the struggling
Chrysler Corp. is unlikely to come in the $1 billion
bundle being sought by the company and the United
Auto Workers (UAW) Union, a Detroit
Congressman said yesterday.
It probably will be a multi-faceted plan involving
elements of both rescue proposals and possible
demanding that Chrysler workers share some of the
burden of helping the firm, U.S. Rep. William
Brodhead said.
IF THERE'S hope for a program it's going to
have to' involve the UAW, Chrysler, and the ad-
ministration all going in the same direction," the
Democratic House Ways and Means Committee
member said.
"I don't think you're going to see a government
bailout in the sense the government is going to pick
up the tab for Chrysler's problems."
One possibility, Brodhead said, is for Chrysler
workers to buy stock in the corporation rather than
hold out for pay raises in current contract
