UAW may strike Delphi if contract dumped

DETROIT, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Bankrupt Michigan-based auto parts supplier Delphi Corp. could face a strike by member of the United Auto Workers.

UAW leaders declined Thursday to rule out such a job action over the company's attempt, in bankruptcy court, to wring big concessions from workers, the Detroit Free Press reported Friday.

One union local distributed leaflets calling on members to brace for a strike if the court allows Delphi to throw out its UAW contract.

A strike against Delphi could close numerous North American plants owned by General Motors Corp., Delphi's biggest customer and another financially ailing company.

Before filing for bankruptcy earlier this month, Delphi had proposed wage cuts of as much as 63 percent and lower benefits.
