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.

During your response to our proposal delivered at 9:05 am today, Sunday, October 6, 2019, you didn’t even have a professional courtesy to explain why you could not accept or why you rejected our package proposal for each item we addressed. We expect the Company to respond and discuss the package proposal we presented yesterday. The law and basic decency require no less.
