First Full Day For Gm Workers

NPR's Eric Westervelt reports that the United Auto Workers come back today for their first full day on the job at the General Motors plants in Flint, Michigan. The strikes ended Tuesday and workers approved the agreement yesterday. Workers are calling it a victory for the UAW. But some analysts believe the union has only postponed its problems and that it will probably face similar challenges again when a new contract talks begin for the entire auto industry next fall.
