GM, auto workers resume
national contract talks
DETROIT (AP) - General Motors
Corp. and the United Auto Workers
resumed talks on a national contract
yesterday as Canadian autoworkers
overwhelmingly ratified a pact to end a
The Canadian Auto Workers held
eight meetings in Ontario and Quebec
to explain the tentative agreement to its
26,300 GM workers. The deal, reached
Tuesday, was approved by 89 percent of
The final vote was 12,973 to 1,648.
In Detroit, GM's talks with the
UAW continued, but there was no
word from either side on how close
negotiators were to a settlement.
Analysts expect a deal within days
now that the CAW contract has been
"It doesn't seem like there's a lot of
controversy," said Nicholas Lobaccaro
of Bear, Stearns & Co. "It doesn't
sound like there's the threat of a strike

unions, but have coordinated their strat-
egy in this round of Big Three contract
While the strike against GM of
Canada Ltd. was over, its effects were
expected to keep rippling through the
North American manufacturing opera-
'ions of the world's largest automaker
for at least another week.
GM said the number of workers in
the United States and Mexico laid off
because of the strike fell slightly yester-
day to 19,159. A total 1,830 parts work-
ers, mostly in Mexico, returned to their
jobs while 1,058 new layoffs occurred
in Mexico, and Mansfield, Ohio, and
There were no new slowdowns or
closures of assembly plants, though
third-shift workers at the Lordstown,
Ohio, Pontiac-Chevrolet plant were
told not to return to work tomorrow
from their regular days off of yester-
day and today. A GM source, speak-
ing on condition of anonymity, said
the entire plant may close this week-
end, followed soon by the Buick City
complex in Flint.
Plant slowdowns and last week's clo-
sure of the Cadillac plant in Detroit
resulted from shortages of Canada-
made parts. It could take two or three
weeks for full production to resume as
new parts are shipped from Canada.
GM stockpiled many parts, which
drastically lessened the effect of the
strike south of the Canada border.
Analysts estimate the fourth-quar-
ter cost of the strike will be from
$225 million to $350 million,
depending on how much production
is lost. That compares with the $900
million after-tax cost of the 17-day
UAW strike at two GM brake plants
in Dayton, Ohio, in March, which
virtually shut down GM's North
Analyst David Healy of Burnham
Securities Inc. said lost production
could total between 65,000 and 100,000
units, but that much of that could be
made up with overtime in the fourth

Darden said there is a stereotype that

she often would not get the recognition
for her music that she deserved before

The UAW and GM talked through-
out the CAW strike and reached
agreement on many issues, sources
say. But the UAW held off on the
final push to work out remaining
details while it waited for the strike
to play itself out.
"The UAW and General Motors are
very, very close to signing an agrc&'
ment," said analyst Ronald Glantz of
Dean Witter Reynolds Inc. "I expect the
UAW to sign within two weeks withouf
any labor disruptions."
The key issue here, as in Canada, is
outsourcing - farming out parts work
to outside, lower-cost suppliers.
