Update from UAW-GM Vice President Terry Dittes to GM Members

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.

The staff and your elected Bargaining Committee from both hourly and salary have been working long hours and aggressively addressing your needs. We will continue to work over the weekend in an attempt to reach a Tentative Agreement on behalf of you and your families.

Thank you for standing strong and making sacrifices for the good of all.

In solidarity,

Terry Dittes
Vice President and Director
UAW General Motors Department
