An Associated Press (AP) report on Wednesday said the United Auto Workers could lose up to 50,000 jobs at Detroit's 'Big Three' car makers and two major suppliers over the next four years, though analysts say the union is likely to make up some of the losses by organising ('unionising') non-union suppliers. According to AP, analysts also note that the bulk of job losses will occur through attrition and early retirement, not from layoffs at plants that will be closed or sold as part of tentative labour pacts reached last week.
