UAW and Chrysler temporarily halt contract talks
A statement from Chrysler says talks ended this morning so the UAW could meet with its National Council.
Chrysler is the last of the Detroit Three to reach a tentative contract with the UAW. General Motors workers last week ratified a new four-year contract by a margin of two-to-one.
Ford workers are voting this week on a new contract.
Both the contract at Ford and General Motors provide for a pay increase for the company's entry-level workers.
But Chrysler has many more of the entry-level workers than Ford and GM. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has called the pay increase at Ford and GM "overly generous."
