GM Calling on UAW to End Strike

General Motors is calling on its employees with the United Auto Workers to end their strike.

In a letter sent to employees today GM told the union that it’s time the two sides reach a deal.

The strike started nearly a month ago on Sep. 16.

That work stoppage has put a halt on vehicle production for GM.

Anderson Economic Group says the Detroit-based automaker has lost more than a billion dollars.

Michigan’s Treasury Department says that with all the GM employees in the state striking, state withholding taxes could be down anywhere from $1.5 million to $2 million each week.

GM CEO Mary Barra wants the union to respond to the company’s offer made this week.

The UAW vice president Terry Dittes says a response won’t come until committees finish working through their issues with the proposal.
