UAW serves another strike-notice on GM

UAW workers at GM's Wyoming plant sent the message they want a contract sooner than later. Paperwork has been filed and talks about a possible strike if both sides don't get to the bargaining table. The union put the plant on notice Friday, giving them five days to propose a new agreement. If nothing happens, another five day notice will go out, and after that, it could be strike time.

The union's main issue is the plant trying to bring outsiders in, even though skilled trade workers are already on staff.

But those employees will cost more than new employees.

The UAW and GM came to terms on a national contract last fall, but some local contracts remain up in the air.

Negotiations have been on and off since last July, but both sides will be back to the table Monday.
