Remember when you were in school and you pulled an all-nighter to finish your project due early in the morning? GM and the UAW seem to be doing something almost exactly like that, except their assignment is due at midnight, and thousands of workers will be effected by the outcome. The current labor contracts between GM and the UAW expired today, and negotiating teams are working to reach a new labor deal before the clock strikes midnight tonight.
If they can’t reach a deal, chances are the teams will get a deadline extension. If only college profs were equally forgiving.
