Synopsis

After weeks of negotiations and its first strike in 37 years, General Motors and the United Auto Workers reached a tentative agreement for a new contract. It’s billed as historic for both sides -- the company sheds legacy health care while the union receives some job security guarantees. Everybody's happy, right? On this week's Autoline Detroit, John McElroy and his guests Csaba Csere from Car and Driver, and Daniel Howes from The Detroit News, look between the lines on the agreement and discuss its impact on GM, the UAW and what may happen with Ford and Chrysler as they wait in the wings.

In addition, our panel also tackles one of the other burning automotive issues of the day, CAFE regulations.
