UAW contract expires at
midnight; both sides quiet------
Detroit (AP) - As General Mo-
tors Corp. and United Auto Workers
onion negotiators kept silent yester-
day about progress toward a new
contract, some workers sounded anx-
The three-year national labor
agreement, which covers 300,000
workers, expires at midnight today.
The two sides must reach an agree-
ment by the deadline, extend the cur-
rent contract or the union can call a
"Everybody is curious," said
Dave Perdue, president of UAW Lo-
cal 276 at GM's Arlington, Texas,
assembly plant. "They're hungry for
"The lack of information, the
lack of strike rhetoric - that tells
me I should anticipate a settlement,"
In a recorded message for UAW
members, union Vice President
Stephen Yokich said yesterday more
work remains for negotiators who
began working on the new contract
in late July.
"The deadline is quickly ap-
proaching and we must see more
movement by the corporation if we
are to reach tentative agreement
prior to the deadline," he said. "I
urge you to stay in close touch with
your local officers about our plans as
we approach midnight on Friday."
UAW and company officials said
only that bargaining was continuing.
Language on job security, wage,
pension and health care were the ma-
jor points still on the bargaining
One UAW official said yesterday
that negotiators have reached tenta-
tive agreements on a variety of
mostly non-economic issues, includ-
ing attendance policy, health and
safety and compensation for UAW
members called up for active duty in
the military reserves.
A week ago, GM and the UAW
said the company would pay union-
covered employees called up for ac-
tive duty because of the Middle East
crisis the difference between their
military pay and their regular GM
pay for 30 days.
The UAW has called a meeting of
its GM bargaining council for local
presidents and bargaining committee
heads. The meeting will take place
Monday in Dearborn.
