UAW Boosts Strike Pay As GM Talks Lumber On
The United Auto Workers union said Saturday it will boost strike pay for 48,000 hourly workers at General Motors Co.According to Reuters, pay will go up by $25 a week to $275 as the strike against the largest U.S. automaker nears the end of its fourth week.Both sides said talks were continuing late Saturday afternoon to try to resolve the longest nationwide strike at GM since 1970.The UAW also said it would allow members striking to take on part-time jobs without reducing their strike pay.That is, as long as they perform picket-line duties.
