UAW leaders look like they are ready to offer some kind of relief to GM. GM and UAW were already in talks over healthcare costs, and the latest vote by UAW local and regional leadership indicates they may consider some concessions. Whether the concessions that the UAW has in mind will be enough for GM is still questionable. GM is seeking to get the UAW to have its members pay for more of their healthcare costs. GM's salaried workers pay 27 percent of their healthcare costs, while union members pay seven percent. GM insists that this gap should be closed.
