UAW says it's not close to an agreement with Delphi, GM

Updated:
DETROIT (AP) _ The United Auto Workers said today that it's not close to reaching a deal with auto supplier Delphi and General Motors over financial help for hourly workers as Delphi restructures in bankruptcy court.

The UAW said unspecified media reports indicating the parties are close to an agreement are false and are a disservice to its members.

The UAW confirmed that it is holding a meeting next week for union leaders from Delphi facilities, but said the meeting is routine and intended to update members.

Delphi has threatened to ask a bankruptcy court judge to cancel its labor contracts on March 31st if it hasn't reached a deal to cut its labor costs. The UAW has said it will consider a strike if Delphi cancels those contracts.

Delphi operates plants in Clinton and Brookhaven, Mississippi. The auto parts supplier is scheduled to be back in bankruptcy court in New York on Thursday.
