The CAW and DCX have worked out a labor pact that, most significantly, does not involve a large number of job cuts. DCX had originally requested about a 20% reduction in its workforce. Wage, pension, and benefit increases described as "modest" were also included in the deal. Now that this is settled, it's on to hammering out a deal with General Motors. GM has already stated that the deal struck between the CAW and Ford doesn't force enough cost-cutting, and the union says that if talks continue along the current path, "they're heading for a shutdown". In most other years, that'd sound like a hollow threat, but this time around, I think it carries more weight.
