GM, UAW Agreement Details Out In Open: Discounted AOL Service Discontinued!

While thumbing through the Freep's copy of the GM-UAW Agreement, we found a concession we're sure will be quite difficult for the working man to bear. Apparently, despite Ron Gettelfinger's tireless work at the negotiating table, UAW GM active and retired workers will have the program providing AOL internet service at discounted rates — discontinued. But fear not, blue-collared auto working friends, you'll be able to keep your current e-mail accounts — at regular prices. We're sure hoping this won't be a devastating blow to AOL's bottom line as folks start to defect due to higher prices — and we certainly hope it doesn't hurt numbers at our friendly neighborhood AOL-owned automotive blog. Maybe we should start a collection or something. [via Freep]
