DETROIT, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- U.S. automaker General Motors said it would attempt to tie factory- and office-worker pay to car quality measures.

At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the company's North American President Mark Reuss said, "I want to make sure we pay people for superior results. Period," The Detroit News reported Tuesday.

"When we're not performing, I'm not going to be paid out and neither is anyone else," he said.

In a reaction, United Auto Workers President Bob King said the next round of contract negotiations, scheduled for this year, would include discussions of "a lot of things."

"Our members deserve tremendous credit for the sacrifices they made, and for their tremendous personal commitment to quality and continued improvement," he said.

In turn, Ford Motor Co. Chief Executive Officer Alan Mulally said "everybody should share" in the company's good fortunes.

Mulally did not offer details to back up his comment, which was made while on a tour of the auto show while accompanied by King and five members of Congress, the newspaper said.
