    UAW Seeks to Regain Concessions as Contract Talks Loom


    Delegates from the United Auto Workers (UAW) will gather next week in Detroit, as the union works out its strategy to negotiate with domestic automakers for a new four-year contract. The current pact expires in September.

    With auto sales firmly rebounding, the UAW is eager to win back the concessions it granted General Motors (GM), Ford Motor (F) and Chrysler over the past decade -- in an effort to help the Detroit Three better compete against increased overseas competition and combat eroding market share.
