LABOR REACTION TO GM CHAIRMAN'S RESIGNATION

 LABOR REACTION TO GM CHAIRMAN'S RESIGNATION
 DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The resignation of General


Motors Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert Stemple was no surprise to leaders of the International Union of Electronic Workers (IUE/AFL-CIO), which represents thousands of workers at GM.
 Ron Gilvin, chairman of the IUE/GM Conference Board, the represenative board that negotiates with the company, said: "Stemple's power has always been limited by actions taken by the GM board of directors. How this action will affect GM workers is yet to be seen. However, we do know that IUE has a long history of working with GM and we are willing to work with new leadership. But we must do whatever we can to protect the jobs and living standards of our members."
 IUE Secretary-Treasurer Edward Fire, who has negotiated with GM since the late '60s said: "The instability in terms of the management structure at GM does cause concern, particularly with national negotiations only nine months away. The solutions to GM's problems aren't for the company to lower the living standards of GM workers, but for both management and the unions to work at developing constructive, cooperative and less adversarial relationships. Workers will not be the scapegoats for GM's inability to manage the business effectively."
