UAW-GM strike day 31

The United Auto Workers (UAW) strike against General Motors is into day 31.

The union has called the National GM Council to Detroit as negotiations between the union and automaker continue. A meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday.

Here's a look at what's on the negotiation table:

  • The current time to progress to top pay with full-time, full benefits status is eight years. The UAW wants that knocked down to four years.
  • The union also wants temporary workers to be able to qualify for progression.
  • Workers will get 3 percent raises and lump sum bonuses in two of four years.
  • Workers will get enhanced health care at no extra cost.
