United Auto Workers Open To Contract Changes

The head of the United Auto Workers has said the union is willing to change its contract and will delay billions of dollars in payments to a union-run health care trust.

The concession is a bid to help Detroit's ailing Big Three automakers, which are seeking a multibillion dollar congressional bailout to stay afloat.
