UAW, Delphi Deal Calls for Lower Pay, Buyouts
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
NPR's business news starts with slashing costs at Delphi.
Over the weekend, reports emerged about a deal between the United Auto Workers and Delphi, the struggling auto-parts maker. The company will slash its workers' pay from $27 to $14 an hour. Delphi will shut down at least a dozen sites and it will offer workers buyouts in an attempt to emerge from bankruptcy and avoid a strike.
