DETROIT – General Motors is urging the United Auto Workers to agree to “around-the-clock” bargaining in an attempt to reach a tentative agreement and potentially end the union’s strike against the automaker, now in its 25th day.
In a Thursday letter obtained by CNBC, GM Vice President of North America – Labor Relations Scott Sandefur criticizes the union for not promptly responding to a Monday offer from the company. He also encourages the union to “engage in bargaining over all issues around-the-clock to get an agreement.”
