DETROIT – The United Automobile Workers strike against General Motors has lasted for nearly a whole month. Saturday marks day 27 of the national strike.
The counterproposal sent a strong signal that a tentative agreement between the union and automaker is close and could happen any day.
In a letter to membership, the union stated that if GM accepts the proposal, they will reach a tentative agreement.
It is not clear when GM will respond to the proposal, but union officials say they will be working through the weekend.
