The UAW will allow Big Three automakers to delay healthcare payments, and will suspend the controversial jobs bank program for laid-off workers - in the hopes of helping automakers secure emergency federal loans.

    I don't think the words "delay" and "suspend" go to the serial structural issues that these Auto companies have ...this just doesn't cut it ...looking in the rear vision mirror as usual I am afraid for the UAW !

    The UAW gave very little today. Those who voted on giving up the jobs bank have jobs and gave up nothing. Ditto for postponing the health care payments. What they need to do is take a pay cut so it's competitive with the "transplants". UAW workers and retirees should also start paying more for heath insurance co-payments and deductibles.
