GM CEO Mary Barra hands on with UAW talks: source

General Motors CEO Mary Barra met with United Auto Workers leaders Tuesday morning as the union's strike against the company is just shy of the one-month mark, according to a source familiar to the situation FOX Business has learned.

The meeting began around 9:30 a.m., the source said. GM shares rose on Tuesday.

Ticker Security Last Change Change %
GM GENERAL MOTORS CO. 44.10 +0.39 +0.88%

This is believed to be Barra's second meeting with UAW leaders after she met with officials last week.

Local UAW chapter leaders were called to Detroit for a meeting Thursday, FOX Business confirmed. The meeting was believed to center on a tentative agreement.

Both GM's and UAW's headquarters are in Detroit.

The union called for a strike after expressing discontent with GM's profit-sharing formula, production of vehicles in Mexico, a potential change in health care cost-sharing and pathways for temporary workers.

FOX Business' inquiries to the UAW were not returned at the time of publication. GM declined to comment.
