A6 SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1998 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL V GM STRIKE GM workers strike at parts plant BRIEFLY Long strike could hurt production of pickups, sport-utility vehicles By BRIAN S. AKRE The Associated Press DETROIT — General Motors Corp. was hit with a potentially costly strike Friday at a plant that makes parts for GM's hot-selling pickups, sport-utility vehicles and minivans. Nearly 3,400 members of the United Auto Workers walked off the job at GM's Flint Metal Center north of Detroit after talks failed to yield an agreement. It is the seventh strike at a GM plant in the United States since early 1997. The walkout once more pits the No. 1 U.S. automaker's desire to become leaner and more competitive against the union's effort to save jobs. A strike of more than a few days at the stamping plant would lead to shortages of hoods, fenders, doors and other parts, forcing GM The Associated Press Jim Bishop of United Auto Workers Local 659 pickets Friday outside GM's Flint Metal Center north of Detroit. assembly plants throughout North America to close. "Both sides want a quick resolu- tion," said analyst Mike Robinet of CSM Forecasting. "GM, obviously, because a strike really would affect their most profitable operations." The automaker acknowledged as much. "We are extremely concerned about this critical work stoppage that may have far-reaching consequences," GM said in a statement. If the strike is not settled quickly, it "will have a long-term impact on other sites where GM plants, employees and communities have been working together to improve their competitiveness." GM removed critical dies from the stamping plant before the walkout began and insisted the strike would not delay the important launch of its redesigned full- size pickup. GM contends the UAW failed to live up to promises that it would ease restrictive work rules. The automaker says the rules make it impossible to use new stamping equipment to its full, money-sav- ing potential. The union says GM wants to eliminate nearly 200 jobs and has reneged on its promise to invest $300 million to upgrade the plant. It also alleges unsafe conditions at the plant, including exposure to hazardous chemicals and excessive noise. Richard Shoemaker, a UAW vice president, called the company's stance "an example of GM's 'America Last' strategy." "The same way GM is ignoring our national and local contracts, they are also ignoring their 'social contract' with America by transferring jobs, technology and capital from the U.S. to Thailand, Mexico, China and elsewhere," Shoemaker said. GM angered Flint workers when it quietly removed dies for the new pickups while the stamping plant was closed over the Memorial Day weekend. The dies were taken to another GM stamping plant in Mansfield, Ohio, where body parts for the new pickup will be made.

Wall Street roared its approval. "It's worker heaven: lots of jobs, lots of offers, pay going up and plenty of money to spend," said economist Allen Sinai of Pri- mark Decision Economics. "The data underscore the side-by-side presence of substantial weakness from the international arena and the tremendous strength of the domestic economy." The stock market, which came down with a bad case of global jitters last week, shot up. It took Friday's Labor Department report as a reassuring sign of the U.S. economy's stamina. Traders shrugged off the inflationary implications of an intensifying labor shortage, figuring the Federal Reserve isn't about to boost interest rates with Asian Shockwaves rattling Russia and threatening other economies. Volkswagen wins control of Rolls-Royce LONDON — The realities of global commerce caught up with a grand remnant of British glory Friday when Volkswagen AG won approval to buy Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, infuriating small English investors. "Should I call it now a Rolls-wa- gen?" incredulous shareholder Rodney Crowe asked at a meeting called by Vickers PLC, the engineering group that is selling Rolls-Royce to the Germans. Shareholders approved Volkswagen's $700 million deal over a $554 million offer from rival BMW, in a raucous session punctuated by outbursts of nationalism. "What are we going to have? A flying lady on the front of the Beetle?" Crowe said later, conjuring up an image of the distinctive Rolls-Royce hood ornament perched on a Volkswagen Bug. Vickers, an engineering group almost thrown out of business by Rolls-Royce's losses in the last recession, said the sale was the best way forward. Managers buy out Lucent division WICHITA — Five managers have bought out Lucent Technologies' largest Wichita division. The sales price for the new company, called Integra Technologies, was not disclosed. The transaction was done in cooperation with New Jersey-based Lucent. Lucent will keep about 50 employees in its laboratories and maintain an office employing 35 people. Integra will continue the work it did as a Lucent division. It operated as a component evaluation technology center serving more than 300 larger companies, including Lucent, Honeywell and Boeing Co. "The buyout not only allows all Wichita employees to keep their jobs;.it also allows us to stay in a city with a low cost of living — a place where employees produced high-quality work," said Joe Holt, president of Integra.
