SOURCES: Ford, UAW contract talks not going well

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Contract talks between Ford and the United Auto Workers are apparently not going well.  Just a week before the contract expires, people briefed on the matter say Ford and the UAW remain far apart.

They say Ford just started serious talks with the union about pay, which always is the main sticking point.

The UAW's contracts with the automakers expire on September 14th.  The lack of progress raises the possibility that the contracts could be extended beyond the deadline.

Louisville is home to Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant and Louisville Assembly Plant.
