Delphi filed Tuesday with the courts for permission to void its union contracts as it struggles out of bankruptcy. For their part the unions have threatened to strike if the judge grants Delphi's request.
Now International Truck and Engine Corp. has filed its own motion asking that the court outright block any potential union strike. International, which buys $41 million a year in parts from the bankrupt supplier, said such a strike would have an "enormous negative impact" on the world's economy. Lawyers for the UAW have declined to respond to International's filing, though lawyers for other unions have pointed out that federal law severely limits the court's ability to ban strikes.
