General Motors

United Auto Workers picket outside General Motors' assembly plant in Janesville, Wis. A two-day strike that was triggered after contract talks failed to meet a union deadline ended in a new contract that would shift the responsibility for retirees' healthcare benefits to an independent, UAW-administered trust. To reach the deal, the UAW also offered some wage concessions and the company made some job-security pledges, according to people familiar with the situation. Scott Olson / Getty Images
