GM Workers May be Left Out in the Cold

While discussions are currently taking place on what the next buyout offer will entail, the company is remaining tight-lipped for now. "We don’t have anything to announce at this time," said GM spokeswoman Sherri Childers Arb.

The United Auto Workers union was not available for immediate comment.

But with the company in such serious financial trouble, the latest offer is likely to be stingier than what employees have received in the past.

"The financial condition of the company has deteriorated, so the ability to provide generous buyouts has declined as well," according to John Weykamp, an auto restructuring expert at accounting firm Crowe Horwath.
