Sept. 27, 2019—General Motors said it is will pay for the health insurance of its striking hourly workers which reverses a decision to push costs onto the UAW union, reported Reuters.

However, both sides said major issues remain to be resolved.  Because of the complex nature of shifting health care coverage costs, GM said Thursday that UAW members’ coverage had never lapsed.

The UAW had accused GM of blindsiding its members with the decision to drop coverage during the strike, and some workers had claimed they could not pay their medical bills as a result.
