While those close to the bargaining process are tight-lipped, Local 4 has still confirmed some information. It starts with plant investment totaling $9 billion -- a big step up from the original $2 billion. Most of it would be UAW-GM, work but a sizable chunk would go to joint ventures.
One of the biggest UAW demands involves health care, and GM has reportedly agreed to enhanced health care at no extra cost. In two to four years, rank-and-file are expected to see three percent raises, up from two percent in two years, bonuses in the other two years and signing bonuses of $9,000.
