Among them is one plant held absolutely necessary for a return to production. Local bargaining units were autliorized by the UAW to con- tinue striking in support of at- the-plant demands when the UAW and GM reached agree- ment last Wednesday on na- tional contract. GM says the new contract will raise wages from to annually fay the final year of its three-year span. The 155 units have been _ In- structed to complete balloting by Friday on the overall con- tract, but GM says it -will take three to seven days to fill parts pipelines after crew have put. plants in shape to start up again. The UAW can't give GM a final yes Or no on contract rati- fication until Saturday, and that leaves only five days in Novem- ber.
