DETROIT (AP) — Top officials of the United Auto Workers have decided against picking a target company for an effort to sign up workers at U.S. factories owned by foreign automakers.
Union President Bob King tells The Associated Press that the UAW executive board will wait to see the automakers' reactions to union demands to respect workers' rights before making any decision.
A person briefed on union meetings says Nissan Motor Co. appears to be the leading candidate to be targeted. But King says no decision was made. The person asked not to be identified because the meetings are private.
King says no foreign-based automaker has agreed to let workers at their plants vote on UAW representation. He has been trying to sell the UAW as a business partner that makes companies stronger.
