GM delayed talks that had been scheduled to resume last week, say officers of the International Union of Electronic Workers-Communication Workers of America Local 798, which represents some 2,000 workers at GM's sports utility vehicle assembly plant on Stroop Road. And those officers are not certain when talks will resume again.
"We should actually be meeting with them right now," Gaylen Turner, IUE-CWA 798 president, said Wednesday Aug. 13.
Union leaders note that talks began in October 2007 — nearly a year ago. And they contend that GM has a responsibility to expedite negotiations, especially after announcing in June that production at the Moraine plant will end by 2010 or earlier.
