UAW Vice President Terry Dittes issued a statement to ClickonDetroit that GM's most recent response didn't address it's "extensive package provided last evening". On Sunday morning, GM offered a response: one that Union Leaders say was the same one the UAW had already rejected. "The company has shown an unwillingness to fairly compensate. the UAW".
A spokesperson for GM told the Wall Street Journal that the firm is continuing "to negotiate in good faith with very good proposals that benefit employees today and build a stronger future for all of us". He wrote that progress had been made on important issues last week, but the talks took a "turn for the worse".
Contract talks between the UAW and GM hit a major road block on Day 21 of the strike.
Whitmer, who visited workers on the picket lines at a GM plant near the state capital of Lansing, said she hopes the strike ends soon.
Dittes also sent a sharp letter to GM's vice president for labor relations Sunday, saying: "You didn't even have a professional courtesy to explain why you could not accept or why you rejected our package proposal for each item we addressed".
The carmaker said it was committed to negotiating around the clock to reach a deal.

The strike immediately halted production at GM's US factories. Almost 50,000 workers have been off the job, shutting down 33 manufacturing plants and 22 part distribution facilities nationwide. The UAW wants GM to make commitments on future products it would build in various plants beyond what has now been offered, said a person familiar with the talks who asked not to be identified.
For its part, GM says it has proposed more than $7 billion in new investments in United States facilities, 5,400 new jobs and higher salaries.
One of the major remaining issues includes the UAW's desire to reduce the time it takes newer hires to earn the top wage scale of about $31 an hour from the current eight-year period, said the source, who asked not to be identified because the talks are ongoing.
Since mid-September, work has been deposited at dozens of branches in the United States due to a conflict over wages and jobs, among other things.
Analysts estimate the strike has cost GM more than $1 billion U.S., while LMC Automotive estimated on Thursday that GM has lost production of 118,000 vehicles through October 2.
