GM-UAW strike: General Motors promises to build electric pickup at Detroit-Hamtramck plant
More money to go into plant investment
Local 4 has exclusive details about what is on the table in negotiations between the United Automobile Workers and General Motors and what has bogged talks down.
One of the biggest issues in the strike is what is to become of the Detroit-Hamtramck plant. It's one of four unallocated plants, but tonight, Local 4 has learned there is a specific plan for the Detroit Hamtramck plant.
General Motors is committing a couple billion more dollars to plant investment. Last month, GM offered $7 billion. As of Friday night, that number is $2 billion more. It's expected that $7.7 billion would go to GM-UAW facilities, with the rest going to joint ventures.
There's also a commitment from GM to build its new, full-size electric pickup at the Detroit Hamtramck assembly plant. Auto analyst Paul Eisenstein, of thedetroitbureau.com, calls it significant.
