Delphi CEO "Steve" Miller whipped a union-busting hardball at the UAW's head — revising downward his offer to slash the pay and benefits of Delphi workers in exchange for the company's survival. Miller opened negotiations with the Union by cutting a prior starting-pay offer from $10-$12 to $9 along with significant cuts in benefits and paid vacation time. The UAW's official silence in the face of the Miller's latest offer is likely temporary — considering they already voiced institutional objections to the prior offer. A strike is inevitable.
